Unhappy Gameserver


Hi Iam new to Linux and Iam seting up a game server on a linux machine and I saw one of your threads about something like my question but the answere you gave him doesnt work for me. OK heres the command line
Code:
/usr/local/games/wolfenstein/wolfded +set net_IP ***.***.**.*** +set net_port 27960 +set fs_basepath /usr/local/games/wolfenstein +set fs_game ******* +set com_zoneMegs 430 +set vm_game 0 +set ttycon 0 +exec servermain.cfg +set g_password ""
OK I saw in a thread to add nohup and & and the end but still doesnt solve my problem ok Iam trying to make custom commands in webmin so it runs it and its so that its easyer to start it if the server goes down Ive seen other clans have it set up like that but they wont tell me how they did it so if anyone can help because once I click the custom command button i made to start it it starts for like 5 sec and then it shuts off when i log out of webmin so Please help me.

It's normal for programs you have running to quit if you logout.
You could try using screen. You can start the program in screen and when you
logout it will still be running. I can't tell you how to install it because I don't
know what distro your using.

distro = Distribution ie. Suse , Debian , Fedora, etc....

If you use Debian for example you could just type apt-get install screen

The website is:
