There are console commands for both modifying and managing users. In this post we will be focused on the management aspect.
In a previous series of posts, we built a rather simple Debian Minecraft server. After the initial setup, you may find the random world that was created not to your liking for any number of reasons. A task you might want to perform at this point is to generate a new Minecraft world.
Since the server has no GUI, nor did we install any third party management software, this is a task that will need to be performed from the command line. So we will walk through the process, in this post, of saving an existing world, setting a seed for world creation, actually creating a new world, and if desired, deleting a world. (more…)
In the last post we had the Minecraft Server up and running. However there is one issue that needs to be resolved, and one feature that needs to be added.
Basically if you log out of the server, Minecraft stops. We will fix that by using the screen program we installed earlier. While we could do it by hand, we will write a bash script to simplify this process
In the last post we initialized our Minecraft server by setting up a base Debian 11 install, along with some additional programs. Today we will continue working on or Minecraft server by creating the minecraft user to manage the game from.
Part of creating the minecraft user is determining where we want to install Minecraft,so we will look at some options in that regard as well.
We will finish this post up by getting the program and running on our server. (more…)
This is going to be a short series of posts about creating a very simple vanilla Minecraft server on top of a base Debian 11 build. It will have very basic functionality.
