txAdmin is already installed on newer FiveM artifacts, you will just need to run it with ./run.sh for Linux and ./FXServer.exe for Windows.
There is a detailed explaination on the FiveM txAdmin Documentation, go check it out!
For older FXServer versions, go visit the GitHub page of txAdmin (be aware that you should always try to have a updated FXServer version, so instead of trying to get txAdmin for an older version just install a newer FXServer version).
