In my above post, I feel like I left out some key information. The server I would want to run would be vanilla with only a few plugins if necessary. All I want is to whitelist so that only my friends can join and make myself OP to be able to go Creative in case there are ever emergencies. Also, I would not be playing on the dedicated server. I would play on my current desktop. The machine mentioned above would be used EXCLUSIVELY for the server and absolutely nothing else.

Jun 27, 2013Post too long? Check TL;DR at bottom of post!Posted in: Server Support and Administration
Hello all. First off, I'm new to the forums. Very new. I'm not trying to spam anything or be evil in any way. If this is the wrong place to post this, I'm sorry. Please move it or instruct me how to. Again, I'm very new and while I read the rules over more than once when I made my account, that doesn't mean I have a clue in regards to moving posts. Sorry :/
Anyway, with that disclaimer out of the way, I am asking for help or directions to a tutorial on how to set up a dedicated server. I have an old computer that my uncle gave me because "you'll know how to fix it up and you'll have some use for it." It is pretty old, running 32-bit XP with 2 gigs RAM - not sure what type - and a second-gen i3 processor. I was hoping to set up a dedicated server machine with it. From what I've read after scouring the forums and Google, I should be able to play with my friends. I'm talking about 3 or maybe 4 people at a time, maximum. Oh and internet speeds are 25 mbps download and 6 mbps upload.
Now here come the complications. My uncle has absolutely no clue what to do with computers. The machine he gave me was so chock full of viruses, malware, and crap that even my GeekSquad friend who went to school for this kind of stuff said it would be easier to wipe it and install Ubuntu. So I did. I have some basic experience with Ubuntu and a few other Linux distributions, so I slapped 32-bit Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on there. The machine runs great for its age.
With my limited experience with Linux, all the tutorials I've found on the Forums and Wiki have been very, very confusing. I was hoping someone would be able to explain in more simple terms how to set up a dedicated server on that machine. I don't know if I should keep normal Ubuntu or install Ubuntu Server. I really am very confused by what's going on in the tutorials around the forums. Also, if you think it really is impossible for that machine to run a dedicated server with the specs it has, tell me. I really will not be disappointed. Just don't be a jerk about it.
Thanks for any help. I love all of you.

If so, please point me to help/tutorials or describe to me how to do this yourself. The tutorials I've found after searches have been extremely technical and confusing. Thanks for any help.

May 23, 2013thewriterbenny posted a message on [SURV] Wrath of the Pigmen 2 (Darkening of the Pigmen)This looks amazing. Story sounds great, artifacts don't have goofy typical names - like "SWORD OF ULTIMATE DOOM LOL", map looks gorgeous. I'll be playing this as soon as I get back from school. Last day today and this will be a great way to celebrate thatPosted in: Maps
May 20, 2013Wouldn't it be easier to just add a flight option for adventure mode? Not trying to be rude, but for the spectating purposes, instead of going through all the hassle to stop blocks being taken from menus and prevent destruction and interaction, why not just add flight to a mode that already has the other requirements you've set for a spectator mode?Posted in: Suggestions
