How do I port forward correctly?
 
Hey guys I bought a VPS running CentOs 6.2 and I'm trying to set up a minecraft server which uses port 25565 How do I do that?




Also I get this when I start up my sever

Thanks all! I hope to see you all soon and hopefully I'll be able to help people :)

Hi,

it looks like it may be problem with your java installation. Are you using a "recommended" java version.

I've had success with openjdk 6. See:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ml#post4737294

I also notice that the jar file you are using does not appear to be the standard minecraft_server.jar

Finally, one other thing is that you shouldn't really be doing this as root.

Hi,

I just realised that the output you posted suggests that there may already be something attached to that port.
Can you confirm that no other mincraft instance (or anything else) is running on port 25565? Ie is there any output from the following command?
Code:

lsof -i :25565

I'm not to sure what version I watched a tutorial and I downloaded java through the command line

I'll check that out

It's a craftbukkit jar (Server mod)

I couldn't figure out how to give my "minecraft" user the correct permissions

Thanks for the reply!

Bump, I need help badly :( Sorry if bumping is against the rules I haven't taken a look at those yet

Hi,

to help you we need information.

For example, what java version are you using? Eg output of
Code:

readlink -f $(which java)
How did you install and how?

Does a standard minecraft sever work?

Regarding running as root: what permissions problems did you have running as a non-root user? Ie what did you actually do, and what errors were reported.

Evo2.

I used that video, it installed java with it,
the readlink didn't work
I installed it through the commandline

Haven't tried, I purchased the VPS 2 days ago :/

It didn't have permissions to execute an install.sh file

Thanks!

It is of almost not use to say "didn't work" or similar. Please report the error messages. Ie cut and paste what is in the terminal so that we have a chance of working out what is going on.

Again, that doesn't tell me much.

Then change the permissions on the file.

To try to isolate the problem I think you should start by trying to run the standard minecraft server.
Eg. run the following commands to download, and then run it.
Code:

wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/MinecraftDownload/launcher/minecraft_server.jar
java -Xms1G -Xmx1G -jar minecraft_server.jar nogui

Regards,

Evo2.

PS. I can't stress enough how important it is to post the exact commands you run and the error messages reported, preferably cut and pasted from the terminal.

Ok thanks! I'll give it a try and post in a little bit :)

Hi,

I'm assuming the output you posted is from the standard minecraft_sever.jar. If so, this really does look like a java problem, not a problem with the server app itself.

I note that you are running this on CentOS 6.2, so I just tried it on an SL 6.2 machine and had no problems. Here is the output for my session:

Thanks! And yes, it was a normal jar.

I tried the readlink command and got no feedback

Thanks!

That's curious. Ok, please run the following commands and cut and paste from your terminal (both the output and the actual commands that you are running).
Code:

which java
ls -l $(which java)
rpm -qa |grep java
