How do i start make own project Zomboid server?
I've been looking for directions on how to host my own PZ server and have come up with nothing yet. Is there anyone out there that would be able to help me?

And don't forget to port forward and check your firewall on the PC hosting.

@ LordMaximus89

I just wanna say thanks for the vid link!
I spent hours trying to figure it out and had missed such a simple step -- no wonder I was confused.

Just want you, and anybody else lurking, to know that it helps a ton.
Thanks again!

Why can't I find the ProjectZomboidServer.bat file in my directory?

I doesn't show up if you're running on mac. If you're on windows it should be in you're directory. If you are running lunix then it will be in your directory but is called projectzomboid-dedi-server.sh.
BTW Thanks for the video, helped a lot.

FYI - tunngle is the easiest way to connect to your friends servers in this game. I messed around for over an hour with port forwarding following the instructions on their website to no avail... tried tunngle, BAM worked instantly.

port forwarding wasnt that hard to do. i only had trouble finding the serverbat file.

You can rent your server from a provider as home hosting is usually laggy:
Western Europe and Canada / US east coast: http://www.roxservers.com
Europe & US: http://www.fragnet.net
