    Yea I am a noob when it comes to VPSs, so I do not know how to get Bukkit onto it, I don't even know how to get java onto it, and was wondering how/if I can. Also, it would be helpful if someone could help me get java onto my server. Thanks!

    What operating system is running on it?

    It is running on a CentOS 5 x86 (32bit) operating system.

    Is it possible through using a remote connection?

    well, connect as root via ssh, install java with yum, and then just run the .sh file
    if you have a VPS system, you should know how to use it xD

    -> 1) connect as root using SSH
    -> 2) type "yum install java"
    -> 3) start your mc server (preferably not as root, but as a normal user)

    I know I should, but I was an idiot when I was thinking about it. I thought it would be just like making a MC server on my computer XD

    i see xD, well, it's not too complicated, you just have to get a bit familiar with linux
    depending on how your firewall is configured (most likely iptables), you may have to open the mc server port

    if you encounter any problems, post them here :)

    just upload the files to a folder, either by
    a) using SCP file transfer through SSH (with a tool like WinSCP)
    b) using FTP file transfer with a FTP client (you may have to setup a ftp server first)

    Wow, I cannot believe how much trouble I went through to try and download java, when all I had to do was type in yum install java.... I feel like a retard, but thanks for the help, really.

    I have two last questions, how do you turn the server off/on?

    You should install vnc, as you would have a windows like mode to control your server. It will need a little more memory, but if you do not know linux, it will be the easyer way to manage your server.
    From the begning. Reinstall your OS, it will wipe every thing you done on the vps. Install centOs

    Login on the ssh( the comand line thing that looks likes dos on your server control pannel), and type: "yum install java". Install it

    Then install a desktop environment. type "yum groupinstall XFCE"

    install firefox. type "yum install firefox"

    now install vnc. type "yum install vnc-server"

    now type "vncserver" it will ask you to define a password.

    stop the vnc. type "vncserver -kill :1"

    now install nano( maybe your centos will have this already). type "yum install nano"

    now type "nano /root/.vnc/xstartup" it will open a thing where u can edit.

    edit this:

    to this:


    To save this, follow this key sequence.
    Ctrl + X,

    Now enter the command "vncserver" again.

    ok, now u need to download a thing to your computer, not the vps. I assume you are using windows, so download this: http://www.tightvnc.com/download/2.0.2/tightvnc-2.0.2-setup.exe

    install it, run, put your server ip with :1 on the end like this:
    click to connect. Done.

    If you ever shut your server down, enter on ssh again and type "vncserver"


    I know I know im root, i shouldnt, but this way is easy :D

    Wait does doing the vncserver thing start my MC server?
  10. Offline


    no no, vnc thing is to have a window managed linux, so you dont need to do everything by comandline.
