Right click on CS:GO in your Steam library, select “Manage” -> “Browse Local Files”. Then go to the “csgo” folder and then the “cfg” folder and place the config file there.

Why do I need a CSGO practice config?
In order to get better, you have to understand what your weaknesses are and how to improve them. The same principle applies to CSGO, a game that’s competitive level keeps getting higher and higher. If you’re here, you should already know what you need to work on. If not, sign up for Leetify for free to analyze your weaknesses and learn how to improve.
A great way to up your game is to go solo and hop into a practice server. You can use a CSGO practice server to practice smoke grenades, flashes, nades, molotovs or to look for new sneaky positions, angles, search for new boosts, spray patterns, executes, and more.
However, setting one up can be a bit difficult the first time around so below you’ll find everything you’ll need to get setup and practicing on your own server.
Note; if you’re unfamiliar with what your config or autoexec files are. Learn more about them in how to create and use an autoexec config file in CSGO updated for 2020
Alternative 1: Download config and host a server yourself

If you’re already familiar with this entire process, go ahead and download our official practice config and get started.

- The .cfg extension is important.
- Right click on CS:GO in your Steam library, select “Manage” -> “Browse Local Files”.
- Go to the “csgo” folder and then the “cfg” folder
- Move the config file into this folder.
- Start CS:GO and select “Play offline with bots” to start a local server.
- Open up your console and type “exec practice” (or whatever you named the config file)
You’re all set!
Installing the config on a dedicated CSGO practice server
If you run a dedicated CSGO server and want to install the config there, here’s how:
- Connect to your server via FTP, SSH, or whatever your preference
- Find the “cfg” folder.
- Upload your config file to this folder.
