I just wanted to chip in and offer my impressions of AllGamer's services. I've had a server with them for some time now (specifically since April of 2011), and I have been extrelemy pleased with their service on nearly all levels. There was one small episode of downtime which was poorly communicated, but ever since that incident, there have been no surprises, and their support personnel are extremely helpful and responsive to every inquiry I have made of them. I can recommend their VPS services without hesitation, and, though I have no experience with their other services, can only imagine that their top-shelf standards of service are in-place across their entire line of offerings.
ETA: better grammar.

Make sure DISPLAY_ON_LAUNCH is set to 0. This is on line 16 of the current version of the script.
Jan 8, 2011Posted in: Minecraft ToolsQuote from zeeZ »Why does it modify the minecraft.jar?
I have a huge problem with anything modifying the client files.
It doesn't- it only needs to refer to some of the code therein, and the author (rightly) doesn't want to redistribute Notch's code without permission.
Jan 7, 2011DopeGhoti posted a message on mcmap (isometric renders, SSP/SMP, Minecraft 1.3.1 support)The capabilities of this program are astounding.Posted in: Minecraft Tools
I've been taking daily images of my server's map since September. Recently, some folks have decided to go on walkabout, and the images are still rendering (and rather quickly, too!). They have become large. Quite large.
The most recent daytime image is 142MB in size. That's not the map; that's the image. After being processed by pngcrush.
The resultant monstrosity is so large that it will not open in Firefox, Opera, Safari, or Chrome. But it will open in the GIMP if you have 10GB to let the program swap out to.
mcmap is generating an image measuring in at 48842 × 19434 pixels. At 72 DPI, it would, if printed, be 678.361 × 269.917 inches, or 56 feet, 6 inches, by 22 feet, 5 inches.
This is an extremely robust program. I am impressed. I'd offer to share the image, but I don't think any image hosts will allow such a behemoth.
Jan 5, 2011Posted in: Minecraft ToolsQuote from PET »Stupid noob question.
Where can I find some info on how to actually use this?
All I have is c10t.exe and 2 txt files that don't have much info.
Run c10t --help and you'll get a ton of explanation as to the syntax and purpose of all of the options.

Is there a dependency I need before installing this or is something wrong with my VPS server?
CentOS also has some pretty anemic repositories by default. You might have to add the RPMForge repos in order to get all the tools that you need. CentOS is in many ways comparable to Debian Stable: Solid as a rock, but not terribly featureful.

I'm all for helping folk out, but might I gently suggest further assistance be taken to another thread relevant to web or image hosting? Other people with similar problems are more likely to search for a thread with an appropriate title. :smile.gif:
Jan 2, 2011Posted in: Server AdministrationQuote from atomix77 »Quote from DopeGhoti »Also, I strongly urge you not to run Minecraft as root.
Why? What could happen if I run it as root? I have read that there are some vulnerabilities regarding hacking, but are there any performance issues too?
No performance issues, but if a vulnerability in any of the stack of programs you're using to run Minecraft is discovered, your server is open season. If you run as another user, the worst thing they can do is break Minecraft. If you run it as root, the worst-case scenario is much, much worse.
The only thing you should be doing as root is systems administration tasks; anything else should have a specific user that has access to what they need to to their job, and no more.
Jan 1, 2011Posted in: Server AdministrationQuote from atomix77 »I'm getting this error in SSH:
-bash: ./minecraft.sh: /bin/bash^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
I tried changing the MC_PATH setting, but nothing that I edited worked.
My VPS structure is like this:
so where should the minecraft.sh be placed and what should I write in MC_PATH ?
Did you edit the file on a Windows machine? That '^M' at the end is a DOS-style EOL marker. Look into a program like Dos2Unix to convert the file.
Also, I strongly urge you not to run Minecraft as root.
Dec 31, 2010Posted in: Minecraft ToolsQuote from Lingnik »c10t stopped working for me a long time ago, and none of the HEAD versions have worked since. Posted this bug on github back in November. https://github.com/udoprog/c10t/issues#issue/90
It might be helpful to use git bisect to find the last build that worked, and more importantly, the commit that broke things for you, to help identify where the problem is.
Dec 30, 2010Posted in: Server AdministrationQuote from likwidtek »I've been using endofzero's fork of this admin script for a while now. Dude, you guys are awesome! Thanks so much for the help and my server is running amazing thanks to you. OH! Also, thanks for adding sync and biome.. they work like a champ.
I'm thinking of writing an shm fork of this for servers with lots of free RAM; copying the worlds shared memory for mapping and biome extraction has the potential to be much, much faster. More to come.
Dec 30, 2010Posted in: Server AdministrationQuote from redemonfox »Hi, when I start up the shell script, i cant seem to access the console. Is there any way to do that? Also, are there guides on installing c10t and the other addons along with how to set up a cronjob/crontab (don't know the difference). Thanks for reading and hopefully answering.
EDIT: oh and also, after I stop the server and try to start it again, it says server is online. It still doesn't start even when I do ./minecraft.sh start force (even when I kill the process) The only way I got it starting is by using ./minecraft.sh update 0.0
2nd Edit: ./minecraft.sh stop doesn't stop at all for me either.
To which console are you referring?
Installing c10t is as simple as following the directions over in the top post of the c10t thread.
A cron job is a task on the cron table (or crontab). To put it another way, a crontab is a list of cron jobs. To edit the table, run the command 'crontab -e' as the user as whom you will be running minecraft, and a file will open in your favorite editor. Cron's syntax is a little esoteric, but I'll try to give you an example here:
# #Min Hour DOM Month DOW Command */15 * * * * /path/to/scripts/thing1.sh 30 2 * * * /path/to/scripts/thing2.sh
The above cron table has two schedule cron jobs. The first one, thing1.sh, runs every fifteen minutes, every day. You could use that for a job that would, say, make sure the server is running, and if not, restart it.
The second, thing2.sh, runs at 2:30 AM every day. That could be a script that halts saving, backs up the world, makes new maps, and then restarts saving once its tasks have been completed.
As to the other problems you're having, it's hard to answer without having more details. Precisely what happens, including messages, when you try to start the already-stopped server, for example?
Dec 23, 2010Posted in: Minecraft ToolsQuote from TheMagistrate »The latest version of MBE resolved my linux command line issues.
Now you just need to resolve the apparent "running the Minecraft server as root" issues you're having.
Dec 22, 2010Posted in: Server AdministrationQuote from likwidtek »
Also, when I run ./minecraft.sh restart it works fine but does not auto detach the screen... which is fine. However, if I CRON this (as in I want to auto restart the server every night), how will it behave? Will it detach the screen session safely?
Take a look at line 15 of your script. Is DISPLAY_ON_LAUNCH set to 0? If not, make it so.
Dec 22, 2010Posted in: Minecraft ToolsQuote from FabianN »what I figured out is that the file in the directory was labled Minecraft.jar, not minecraft.jar. In windows that doesn't matter but the linux file system is case sensitive, so because of that it wasn't able to find the file.
Once I placed a minecraft.jar file in that directory matching the name, I got this error:
Discovering minecraft.jar interface...
WARNING: Could not extract grasscolor.png or foliagecolor.png
Either Minecraft or this program are out of date!
Match strength: 1%
Deobfuscation of minecraft.jar failed.
Signature match for save class not found.
Class listing (27entires)
Failed to bind to Minecraft, cannot generate biomes.
Review the above messages to see if there's anything you can do about it.
If not, check online for a new version.
That's what you get when you run against Minecraft.jar (what you download from the website), and not minecraft.jar (what minecraft.jar download automagically for you).
