From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

TeamSpeak is a proprietary Voice over IP software that allows computer users to speak on a chat channel with fellow computer users, much like a telephone conference call.


Install client

Install teamspeak3AUR, available in the Arch User Repository.

Install server

Install teamspeak3-serverAUR, available in the Arch User Repository.



I do not use the Linux client, please feel free to expand this article at this point.



  • You can configure the TeamSpeak server via /etc/conf.d/teamspeak3-server. You can find all necessary explanations inside this file.
  • If you possess a license file please copy it to /var/lib/teamspeak3-server/licensekey.dat.

First startup

At the first startup TeamSpeak creates the SQLite database at /var/lib/teamspeak3-server/ts3server.sqlitedb and the first logfiles. At the same moment TeamSpeak creates the ServerQuery administration account (the superuser of all servers) and the first virtual server including a privilege key for the server administrator of this virtual server. The ServerQuery account is displayed only once on standard output. If you have already started your server and missed it you have to delete /var/lib/teamspeak3-server/ts3server.sqlitedb and clear /var/log/teamspeak3-server/ of all logfiles.

Warning: These steps delete your current configured TeamSpeak servers, your users, permissions and all settings.
  • Stop teamspeak3-server (see Daemon).
  • Remove /var/lib/teamspeak3-server/ts3server.sqlitedb:
rm /var/lib/teamspeak3-server/ts3server.sqlitedb
  • Clear /var/log/teamspeak3-server/:
rm /var/log/teamspeak3-server/*.log
  • Now you can run the server (as root):
su -s /bin/bash -l -c "/usr/bin/teamspeak3-server logpath=/var/log/teamspeak3-server/ dbsqlpath=/opt/teamspeak3-server/sql/ &" teamspeak
  • You should see an output similar to this:
Example output
                        I M P O R T A N T                           
               Server Query Admin Acccount created                 
           loginname= "serveradmin", password= "password"
Note: Write down the password for the ServerQuery administrator!
  • You will also find the privilege key of the first virtual server in this output. But it is also written to the logfile at /var/log/teamspeak3-server/.
  • You can stop the server with this (32-bit):
kill `pidof -o %PPID /opt/teamspeak3-server/ts3server_linux_x86`

or this (64-bit):

kill `pidof -o %PPID /opt/teamspeak3-server/ts3server_linux_x64`

Regular startup

Simply start teamspeak3-server (see Daemon).
