I’m having what seems to be a common problem with my permissions on my Manjaro install, but I have been unable to fix it as of yet after scouring the interwebs.
I have my unprivileged user named ‘miner’ that is a part of the ‘mc’ group. This is the user that I have always used to create any servers or login to the webui. Everything was working fine upon initial install, but after running updates, the server stopped working because I was using the wrong node.js version.
I finally got that fixed, but now I can only login to the webui and none of it works. I cannot see any servers or even the git commit version. I had it all working the other day, but my kid came by and shut down my server and I can’t remember what I did to get it working. It seems for me, the init script isn’t working. Systemd will not start the server and I have to go and manually start it everytime. This is fine, but if I remember correctly (I was clocking 3 months of uptime on this server) The way I got it working before was by somehow starting the server without the systemd script as a unprivileged user.
I have the all of the server and backup folders in /usr/games/minecraft owned by miner:mc right now but I cannot get it to work with a miner:miner ownership either. Also I’m wondering who should own the files in /usr/games/minecraft? Does it matter? Any help would be appreciated, I am so confused. I have all my server files so I could just start with a turnkey install and start fresh, but I would much rather figure this out.
