I am not too familiar with linux yet but I was able to follow the step by steps on setting up my debian 7 wheezy vps with mineos using the guide in the wiki. I am able to log into the web ui with root and a non-root user profile.
I was having problems using the commands in terminal to move files so I used WinSCP for the gui. I downloaded all the game files from the hosted server via ftb and loaded them into the appropriate server folder in mineos. It wouldn’t load, I ended up creating a new instance and copied all the settings. That didn’t work. Finally I read in another thread regarding permissions so I went through each folder and file and corrected the permissions. That got things going and I was able to log into the world. Now I am having some problems with error messages that say "[13:36:52] [Server thread/WARN]: mikebel3 moved wrongly!"
I apologize for so much background info, I’m trying to debate whether to keep troubleshooting with the path I am currently on or if there is a better way to handle this.
