First, create an empty folder and navigate to it. This folder will hold all your FiveM server files.
mkdir ~/fivem_server
cd ~/fivem_server
Download the latest master branch build from the artifacts server. Copy the URL for the latest server version and use wget <url>
 to download it to the created folder. Once you've downloaded the build, extract it using the following command:

tar -xvf fx.tar.xz
Next clone the cfx-server-data repository to a new folder outside the server files folder. This folder will contain the server resources. The command below will clone the repository to a new folder called fivem_resources in your home directory.

git clone https://github.com/citizenfx/cfx-server-data ~/fivem_resources
Generate a FiveM license key, which is completely free and used for server identification. Use your favourite text editor to make a new file called server.cfg in your  fivem_resources folder:

nano ~/fivem_resources/server.cfg

Populate it with the following content:

# Only change the IP if you're using a server with multiple network interfaces, otherwise change the port only.
endpoint_add_tcp ""
endpoint_add_udp ""

# These resources will start by default.
ensure mapmanager
ensure chat
ensure spawnmanager
ensure sessionmanager
ensure fivem
ensure hardcap
ensure rconlog
ensure scoreboard

Starting the server:

cd ~/fivem_resources && bash ~/fivem_server/run.sh +exec server.cfg

Running the server in background (optional):

cd ~/fivem_resources && screen -s "FiveM server" bash ~/fivem_server/run.sh +exec server.cfg
