Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions,

What exactly are you trying to do? I imagine you want to start screen and next the minecraft script inside a screen session to avoid it terminating when you logout. Is that correct? You can start screen and directly open a SSH connection for example like this:
Code:
screen ssh servername
but that doesn't work for local scripts or commands AFAIK. What you could do is just launch screen, start your script inside the session and detach screen:
Code:
screen
sh minecraft.sh
CTRL-a CTRL-d
After that you can check if your screen session is running with:
Code:
screen -ls
and re-attach with:
Code:
screen -r
Once your screen session is running you can safely logout of your server. Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

You execute screen by typing only screen on the command line:
Code:
screen <ENTER>
Next you'll be inside your screen session. That's when you type the command to start your minecraft:
Code:
sh minecraft.sh <ENTER>
and you detach your screen session which will bring you back to your 'normal' console prompt.
Code:
CTRL-a CTRL-d
and check if your screen session is running with:
Code:
screen -ls <ENTER>
If it is, you can safely logout of your server, log back in when needed and re-attach to your screen session with:
Code:
screen -r <ENTER>
Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Why would you do that? What error are you encountering that makes you think you need to uninstall screen?

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

That error indicates that you cannot start an instance of the Java Virtual Machine which apparently is needed by the application you're trying to run. How much RAM (and how much free) do you have on your VPS? I had the same problem with 'our' software here and had to add RAM because Java needed at least 1Gb free.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

And how much RAM do you have free and what are the RAM requirements for Minecraft? What's mentioned in minecraft.sh with regards to RAM or starting Java?

Kind regards,

Eric
