First things first. Like always, first of all, we recommend to update and upgrade your server.
apt-get upgrade -y
First of all, create a separate user for security reasons:
passwd -l teamspeak
Navigate to the new user directory:
Download the TeamSpeak package:
Extract the package with tar
tar -xvf teamspeak3-server_linux_amd64-3.12.1.tar.bz2
Once TeamSpeak is downloaded it's ready to be started as it comes precompiled so no configuration or building is needed. Change to the directory:
Accept with the TeamSpeak license:
Run the startup script:
Copy the login name, password, and token that are printed the first time the server is started. You’ll need them when you connect the first time:
Open TeamSpeak client on your computer. Open the connect dialog (CTRL + S) enter the IP address of your server, the nickname serveradmin
Once the connection is successful the client will ask you for the security token. Copy it from the SSH session and paste it into the dialog box in the client.Making TeamSpeak Start Automatically
You can make TeamSpeak
automatically start every time your server reboots just like this:
While in TeamSPeak's directory teamspeak3-server_linux_amd64
create a new file:
Paste this code and save:
start on runlevel 
stop on runlevel 
The next time your server reboots TeamSpeak will start automatically.Configuring Firewall
If you use a firewall the following ports will need to be opened: 9987, 30033, 10011, and 41144. Here’s the commands to open those ports in IPtables. Run each line as a separate command.
iptables -A INPUT -p udp --dport 9987 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 30033 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 10011 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 41144 -j ACCEPT
That's it, TeamSpeak is installed, configured to start automatically after server's reboot and ready to be used.
