I hope you can help me, I’m sure what I am trying to do is really simple, but I have just got absolutely nowhere with this.
I am running a 1.9 snapshot server and was looking to get Mapcrafter running. I have managed to configure it and get it to generate a map, but for the life of me I can’t figure out how to open the HTML file it creates.
I’m not overly skilled with linux and have done a fair bit of googling to no avail. I’ve tried running to the path from Windows with no joy (assuming that samba isn’t on the MineOS image?) and tried a desperate chmod 777 on the folder to no avail… please tell me what I’m missing, I know that this is probably something really simple but I don’t know where to go next.
Just wanted to continue this thread with some more information pertaining to this topic.
DISCLAIMER: because I’m not running a lot of worlds, and my system is on my home network, security is not my primary concern on this system . I only share one world and it’s map outside of my network, and that’s through aa independent proxy/firewall.
So I also wanted to install mapcrafter, here is a basic overview of what I did.
Mapcrafter.org has a good howto that I won’t cover here but just fallow there howto install on a Debian system and because Turnkey MineOS is, it was easy
Then I installed apache. This was a straight forward install with apt-get. (I know that it could be done with something different/lighter but it’s what I know)
Next I created a new conf file per Mapcrafter.org and just changed the input directories to each of the worlds that I wanted to map. /var/games/minecraft/servers/name-of-world and the output to /var/www/name-of-world
At the prompt type Mapcrafter -c name-of-world.conf
And let it run.
Now point your browser to your MineOS server 192.168.1.10/name-of-world/
Please remember that it can take a long time to render, and a Lot of hard drive space.
Also note that this also works with overviewer
