So basically, I’m transferring my Minecraft Network from one Server Box to another, but I’m having Download, and upload all the files with SFTP, which is taking a while. And I’m trying to find out how to use the import server from archive. Do I just compress (zip) the entire Server, then upload the compressed file to /var/games/minecraft/import, and just it’ll show up there in the Web-UI, and then upload it? and it should work fine? Or do you suggest I just upload it though SFTP, which is perfectly fine for me, I just don’t know if importing is faster and more convenient.
Preferred way is to use your favorite SFTP client, and upload the files to /var/games/minecraft/import.
At that point, log into the webui as the non-root user of your choice and choose the option ‘create server from archive’, which will take the already-uploaded zip file and extract it for you to the right place.
The server will then be listed in the dashboard to work with.
Both ways do upload correctly, but do NOT show up in the Server Area, so I can’t Start them, or do anything using the Web-UI with them. And I uploaded them with the MineOS Admin, but it said no perms in the SFTP, so I used Root instead, and chown -R the .zip to the MineOS Admin and that uploaded and worked, but doesn’t show in the server list.
That doesn’t appear to be working in node.js version atm. You select the archive and set a server name - then nothing happens. Looking in the filesystem, nothing (not even the directory) gets created under /var/games/minecraft/servers/
Behavior was identical on both TurnKey and manual install on Debian.
Have you tried Updating the Webui?
What do the logs say (located at /var/log/mineos.log, upload to a site such as Pastebin then link to the upload here).
About the previous posts from before, for some reason I have a feeling that they tried to compress multiple servers into one zip then tried import, or tried compressing archives into a zip archive and then placing in the directory to import…that’s what the first post has me thinking.
So a little to this I’m swapping Servers. Both are FreeNas running the add on Mineos. I moved a Archive file from the old, and then put it into Import and it won’t load the old world. What am I doing wrong?
An other way to do this is to upload the server itself to the /var/games/minecraft/servers directly and open a terminal and write: cd /var/games/minecraft/servers/servername
After that create a server trough webui (you do not have to if you have one already created) and in the terminal cd to its directory with cd /var/games/minecraft/servers/newserver then type: ls and you will see a file named server.config or at least you should.
Next type: cp ./server.config ../servername/server.config
Not to forget do this all as root or you won’t be able to do all the things.
When done type in the terminal: cd /var/games/minecraft/servers chmod -R a+rwx ./servername
or chown -R your_mc_user_name ./servername
