MineOS not starting spigot

I’m running spigot 1.8. The start button isn’t working, so I used SSH to start it. Messages are being sent to console by the server, bu console can’t execue commands because the WebUI says the server is offline. Any tips?

When using SSH to start it, were you using the root user or the regular, unprivileged user, e.g., mc. If you started it with root at any point, it will have created many files with root as owner, and subsequent attempts to use the web-ui will fail (because the webui always uses mc)

Also, unless you started it with mineos_console.py, your instance of the server is not wrapped in a screen instance, which is how MineOS detects and communicates with long-standing processes, like server jars.
