    I just started using a ramdisk server, is it normal for the map to go away after reboot?
    I see no benefit of this, only inconvenience.

    Is there a reason for the maps being reset along with everything else?

    Just curious, I am still learning how the ramdisk's behavior is.

    Thanks.


    the maps dont go away, the symlink does. hit 'update server files' and it gets regenerated.


    It is not working for me, the only thing that works is hitting restore.

    Thanks, added this to my startup script and it worked perfectly. :smile.gif:

    What is the command used to start up a world?

    I would like to add it to the startup script so my world 1 starts when I start up my server, rather than having to start it from the webpage on a separate computer. Or even manually do it from the server computer instead.

    This is in case I decided to shutdown the server and need to quickly bring it back up without taking the time to start up my other pc and do the process.

    Thanks :smile.gif:

    Sounds great HexParrot! I am still supporting this and using it. I will be doing an install this weekend on a laptop to use as my server rather than using VirtualBox on my main PC, and I can't wait to do so! I especially like the "server.properties automatic fixing", this is definitely going to be a popular new function for me.

    Keep it up :smile.gif:

    BTW. If you ever need any help with the site, forums, or anything, I would be happy to give a shot in helping you.

    Aha! Ty, forgot about that, lol... (I'm new to linux, have been messing around with it a bit the last week or two)


    Ok, I seem to have run into another problem... when I click "Update server files" it comes up with:

    executing command: cgi-bin/server.cgi?command=update&world=one&memory=1024&port=&max_players=&mod=pure
    {'world': 'one', 'memory': '1024', 'command': 'update', 'mod': 'pure'} could not download file: minecraft_server.jar
    could not download file: craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar
    could not download file: c10t-1.5-linux-x86.tar.gz
    extracting c10t files... update complete.


    Any ideas?

    One thing that comes to mind is maybe a program is blocking it... does anybody know what the direct download links the server is trying to pull the files down from are? That way I could go there and see if a program is blocking them (same issue as what happened for my Minecraft client, so am wondering if that fixes it). Nevermind, found them. Still looking for a solution to this problem

    No problem.
    I have a feeling you did not set up the network correctly when you made your virtual OS. Did you select bridged mode? If not go back and click on the settings for the OS and change them to "bridged adapter" under network.

    I will admit that I know little about setting up this program, but i did successfully install MineOS following your youtube guides. I have it running on my server pc connected to my home router.

    1) How can i use the command "online-mode=false"- for those of us who have friends/family who aren't 'paid' minecraft members. I tried to add it in the webUI but it doesn't seem to have changed access.

    2) How in the world can i find the external IP that other users can connect to? is it my static external as seen by myip w/ port 25565?

    3) The address that others need to connect to the server would be your static IP + port correct? i.e. the IP you see when you use myip.com ?

    Many thanks in advance... I'm crossing my fingers to get the online-mode false parameters to work !


    ^
    Anyone have any answers to this?


    1. To use the command online-mode=false will work, but whenever someone connects it gives them the name "player" because it thinks you are playing offline by yourself. So when this happens it only allows 1 person in the world at a time and kicks the other one out. There are versions of minecraft that "spoof" your name, you just have to find them.
    I would recommend they just buy Minecraft to save a lot of hassle, and support Mojang.

    2/3. Yes the IP that people connect to is the one found by whatsmyip.org and several other ip sites. The IP used to manage the server is found by typing "ifconfig" into the linux command.

    Hello, all :smile.gif:

    I just installed MineOS inside Virtualbox, and it looks pretty neat. (I did notice it didn't seem to want to update the server when I clicked the update server button while running IE... it just said "error on page" on the bottom left of the screen. I had to open it in Firefox to get it to work).

    Anyway, I have been looking around for a while and haven't been able to find out how to accomplish this task: Changing the IP Address for the Virtual machine? It is set to automatically get one, but I would like to set a static one. I tried entering:
    ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.211 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
    but it said Permission Denied.

    Any help?
    Thanks!


    Try
    sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.211 netmask 255.255.255.0 up


    sudo should give it admin privileges.

    I was having trouble restoring to an earlier date, but I found your last post on it and I used the command "restore" and it did the trick. Is there a way to list all backups and pick one to restore from? I am just confused on how it did so well in finding the correct backup.

    The only problem I see now is that my world 2 in the web-GUI is not updated. I still see save-all, and all the other old commands.

    Also, please add the restoring method as a tutorial on your site. It keeps it a lot more organized so you don't have to search here. I really do appreciate your work.

    Nvm, my problem was already fixed in the first place.

    BTW, thanks for the previous help also. You always have a helpful solution!
    Keep working on this! I love it. :smile.gif:

    Still using MineOS! It really is a nice server.

    I am trying to install No-ip DUC from http://www.no-ip.com, just in case I ever need to reset my modem and the ip changes.

    When trying to install it, I found out that the "make" command does not work. It is not installed?

    So I tried finding out how to install it and I found out how to install this package using "sudo apt-get install make"
    but the apt-get is not installed either.

    I am not sure how to get no-ip duc installed, but it would be nice to know.
    This is how they show you to install it.

    I would love to try out the new Mine OS. I am pretty familiar with the old one as I messed around with it a lot.
    [edit] Trying it out now.

    BTW. I like your cloud idea, but I would like to have the option of sharing the maps or not. (I would assume this be an option?)

    So we can share our creations with others when we want to. By the Video of the new one, it looks great!

    Keep it going. I appreciate your work! :smile.gif:

    FTP is often quite slow and cumbersome--there are thousands of minecraft files and each one, especially being small, means theres a lot of wasted time in uploading maps. I'd recommend zipping up the file and instead moving that--a single file, compressed is quite a fast transfer.

    Additionally, the best way to remove a map is through SSH, through the use of 'rm -rf /mnt/sda1/minecraft/one' (replace one with appropriate world, in your case, perhaps '1' and 'one'.

    As far as vent, nothing prohibits you from using this as a vent server as well, but due to the licensing (its not publicdomain/gnugpl/2C-freebsd/etc.) I cannot distribute it. Though its probably not a far stretch to make up a tut



    Thanks for the command for deleting the folders! Worked like a charm. :smile.gif:

    I actually spent a while making the vent server run, and it was fairly simple. I have everything working fine now! Thanks again.
    I just need to get used to Linux as I have never worked with it this much before.

    BTW. Any chance in being able to edit or add a startup script? I looked around and it looks like you have to make one in the "ect" dir?

    I tried adding my own startup script, but either it does not work, or I am adding it wrong.
    I need this as my startup script.

    cd /mnt/sda1/minecraft/ventrilo/ventsrv/
    ./ventrilo_srv

    what is the best way to do this?


    @zeekgenateer - I will consider using mumble, but for now I am going to stick with vent. If it is proven to be less bandwidth, I will probably use it. I just feel comfortable using vent for now. :smile.gif:

    @hexparrot - If you consider using mumble, I would just add a tutorial for adding mumble or vent, for the reason you stated, and people may not want it.

    This is a great OS. I am very pleased with it! Just want to say thanks!

    Also, I had my map get all messed up and I wanted to create a new one. So I FTP'd the map and deleted the contents of the "one" folder. But the "one" folder is unable to be deleted, so I decided to rename it to "1" and then it would create a new folder and map. Then I had the server telling me "1" was down, and "one" was up.

    Out of all of this, my question is... What is the best way to remove a map, or create a new map (under an existing map 1) without going to map 2, or 3?

    Also, is there any way I can run things other than just the server? Possibly if I FTP the files and execute them? I would like to run a ventrilo server alongside the minecraft server, but I do not see a way to do this with Mine OS.
    Otherwise, I encourage this in an update.

    Thanks hexparrot!
