I installed MineOS on an old PC two or so months ago, and successfully made a vanilla world which worked perfectly (a complement to your OS). That basically sums up my entire Linux experience; I’m a complete novice.
Recently I have wanted to add protection plugins and the like to make my server a little more people friendly. After some research I decided the way was Bukkit. Alas, the takedown has made that unavailable. So I tried Spigot.
Here’s what I did (all logged in as mc):
- profile name: spigot
- type: Standalone, runnable JAR
- Download URL: https://hub.spigotmc.org/jenkins/job/BuildTools/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/target/BuildTools.jar
- Save download as: BuildTools
- Jarfile to run: BuildTools
- Jarfile arguments:
Updated the profile, got a tick mark. Created a new server with the spigot profile. Says the server is successfully created. When I go to run it, it says it was successfully started, but it does not progress beyond that. It remains Offline, even after repeatedly telling it to start.
I have tried manually dragging the .jar across with WinSCP. No luck. However, that was as Root and from what I read there may be a permissions problem involved.
Running the server on my main PC with Git Bash seems to work, loads of files get downloaded and whatnot (so no problems with the file).
Am I doing this right?
Profiles are just a shorthand way of running a simple Java command, but from the webui.
In your case, the webui will execute the following command each time you hit start: java -jar BuildTools -xmx1024M -xms1024M NA
although it was probably unintentional that you left .jar off of each of those two values, it incidentally isn’t causing any problem. The problems are these:
- Running buildtools repeatedly will only ever download and build the expected jar–it won’t execute the server and make it playable.
- NA isn’t an appropriate argument. Having that filled in May be causing a syntax error and keeping BuildTools from running.
Take a look at the wiki–the forge link–for some insight on what should be a profile and how to configure it.
That said, what you have to do is a 2 step process, one to download/build and one to run the server.
Making a profile is rather needless for download/build, so you might consider using spigots official instructions to download and build the jar. Then, create a profile (“unmanaged”). Unmanaged profiles reduce the need to learn profiles and instead just focus on the admin moving the jar file into the live server directory instead.
I put NA here to show that I felled in nothing in the actual box.
Thanks for the reply! I’ll get round to that when I next have time, and post my results.
Okay. Not really a solution.
I found a download link on the Spigot website to the craftbukkit.jar file. It works with 1.8.1, so latest version. I then setup a standalone type profile and it worked just fine. Thanks for the help, turns out bukkit is a bit easier than Spigot!
If you ever want to run a spigot server, run the jar you tried to put as the download link using this guide: http://www.spigotmc.org/threads/buildtools-updates-information.42865/ . The reason you were having trouble earlier was the jar was a server jar builder, not a server jar itself. Then make the unmanaged profile and put the finished jar into the corresponding place.
Buildtools.jar is not the “server” is a set of scripts that “build” a bukkit and spigot jar file for you. The spigot.jar files that are made are the “server” you use.
Greenwave did just mention that.
