    @HexParrot, I hope you don't find this to be a meaningless suggestion, however something that I have done to the webpages of the admin page is to include a header on the webpage saying which world you are currently looking at the controls for. Since the only way to differentiate which world you are looking at is by looking at the URL, otherwise the pages are identical, it just makes it a little easier to differentiate the worlds pages from each other.

    And a question, in case I cannot find the answer in the time it will take you to give the short answer. Since changing the port from port 80 to 81, it no longer has the snapshots folder in the root directory when connecting to the server, where is this link located that would add the snapshots folder to there?

    Again, thank you for releasing MineOS it has been heaps more easy to install and use than the previous centOS server running minecraft_server.jar that I was using. I am fairly used to linux and have used it for servers and personal use as base desktops before however setting up the centOS server to backup and restart the server if it went down proved to be quite a pain. MineOS has simplified it many times. Please do not let these other people discourage you, as I can assure you I appreciate what you have done much more than they dislike what you have done.

    If I have any other ideas or suggestions would you like me to post them here or contact you another way?

    Thank you for the assistance hexparrot. The server has been great so far. I started using it today, and did not even realize it was a brand new image. So when I was looking up answers to my questions I was a bit confused when the solutions did not work.
    Other than that everything went very smoothly. Other than trying to figure out how to eject the cd when the installer told me it MUST be ejected, the button on my server did nothing, and could not umount it since it was currently being used. And other than needing to realize that because it was connected to a static IP that that was the reason there was no ip coming up via ifconfig.
    I followed your video guide to installing it. The guide for you installing in a VM is good enough to install it in a standalone server once you skip to where you actually start running the scripts.


    Despite that, I probably will end up making the tutorials anyways, for each possible configuration. I like being thorough, though I cannot create and edit these video tuts at nearly a fast enough pace as the community seems to require them.



    Oh, I definitely agree that you should make another one so that a more basic user can follow it and not get confused. But for a slightly more advanced user in the current time should be able to use the current video tutorial.

    In this new version, how do you change the default ports for the web interface and for the web server? I looked in the thread and found the way to do it when you were using httpd, but of course those files no longer exist on this new version, and I am unsure as to where the nginx (I think this was the server you switched to) files are kept. My ISP blocks ports 80 and 8080 so I can't use those.

    Also where I am running my server has 4 static IP's, it would be nice to have a built in way of setting up the server to use static IP, I had to re-run the network cable for my server so that I could put it onto a router rather than on the static IP it was originally on because I could not find how to set up the server with static IP because some of the files mentioned on guides for tiny core did not exist in mineOS.


    To change port 80, edit the configuration file '/etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf'
    To change port 8080, edit the '/opt/bootlocal.sh' startup script

    To open firewall ports for your new ports, use 'sudo vi /usr/local/etc/iptables-rules'

    Right now, my issue is that I can't change the password because it's rejecting minecraft2010.


    I apologize. An undocumented decision I made was to change that to 'minecraft2011', since I actually set that the day I built this new MineOS from the ground up.
    Thank you. Is there anything special I need to do to make the server for the web interface work? I'm still getting /etc/httpd.conf not found or something to that effect.


    I believe that when running that 20_passwords.sh file it writes the new password to the /etc/httpd.conf file. So after running that and entering the old password, and creating a new password, it should store the new password in the /etc/httpd.conf file.
