I am new to running a server but I have just setup a fresh new server for me and a couple of friends to play on
It all went very smoothly and was very simple to get started. Even for a novice first timer it was very easy.
After a bit of googling and other searching I found some answers that may help others, I have added them to this post below.
My questions are.
#1 What start.bat file and commands do you recommend and /or use?
#2 Is there a way to automatically restart the server if there is a crash or problem?
echo (%time%) Loading Minecraft Server.
java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar -d64 minecraft_server.1.8.9.jar
echo (%time%) WARNING: The Minecraft Server Has closed or crashed, Restarting.
ping 126.96.36.199 -n 1 -w 3000 >nul
#3 Where is a good place to learn all the commands that can be used in the console

Thanks for the reply The wiki was my first port of call but it is a little barren of information. It's perfect for basics but I feel it's a bit lacking in details.
Anyhow I found in an older post with something to help with restarting the server. I have added it to the first post and will do so with anything else I find.
