Some environment info
Using my Dell PowerEdge 710
OS is ESXi 6.5
So installing as a VM
Since I don’t know exactly what version of linux this is I’m picking “Other Linux 64-bit” option. I go through the installation and enter the passwords for root and mc. Installs updates, reboots, now back at the TurnKey config console,
I have the 8443 forwarded in router so I can access it outside the network and internally. However, going to in my instance “http://192.168.1.17:8443/” produces nothing
Once I quit out of the configuration thing and logging into root I see a terminal as normal.
So I’m not sure if it was my choice of VM settings for the OS now that I see Debian 8.6 or something else. Thanks in advanced.
Found answer elsewhere but will leave it for others in similar state use https://ip:port NOT http://
please note ESXI is smart enough to run MineOS as ‘other linux 64bit’ and i think you see now the correct selection would have been “Debian 8 64-bit”.
please note that not all items are ‘updated’ and require a manual update as in https://minecraft.codeemo.com/mineoswiki/index.php?title=Updating_the_Webui
also note regular updates using commands as ‘root’:
as appropriate. NOTE that other than opening IP tables or ports https://minecraft.codeemo.com/mineoswiki/index.php?title=Iptables ‘root’ should be used for very little else as you may experience some unexpected behavior from MineOS.
is your server headless? are you also using VMware vSphere Client and intend to utilize the server for other than minecraft as well? if so just take note of how much memory is assigned to each and how many servers are on all at the same time against how much memory you actually have. again ESZI is excellent at handling over-utilization and load balancing but having 6 VM’s/ servers all running 4gb of memory and only 8 or 16gb is available… i think you see the point.
you have made some fantastic choices, have fun!
Thanks for the info, wish I had selected the proper Linux distro but fortunately it runs fine. The server is headless but uses the esxi webui to do the rest as I don’t use the client software. It’s also in my home rack.
The server has dual Xeon L5640’s ( 2.26ghz to 2.8 turbo each is a hex core so 24 vCPUs total) Also 96gb ecc ddr3 and 12tb on raid 6 so no real bottlenecks.
I have some server 2012 VMs going for different things and another Linux VM. I allocated(not dedicated) 24 cores and 24gb of ram to the mineOS VM as orespawn uses a lot of ram for some reason with 4 people. This is just a server I setup for friends to play on or their friends so nothing super fancy. It’s a custom Tekkit Legends pack I made up and thermos 1.7.10 is being used.
However it all works fine after reading the URL needs to be https.
