To get an overview of the available options provided by the management script, be sure to have a look at the help page or read the according section on the ArchWiki article [1].

You can quit the console without shutting down the server by press ctrl+a d (first ctrl+a and after releasing the buttons press d). This will detach your input from the server console. The attaching and detaching is done with GNU screen since it lets you view and type into the console, send single commands to it and keep it alive without a connected user. Take a look at the the command overview at the ArchWiki [2] to get a feel for its power. (@carmelo12341)

Ah I see, thank you for the change! It work's. Don't worry being "late", you were not. I will switch to production with your script, the idle_server saves me headaches with stuff running in the always-loaded-chunks. I have one more question, will the running Minecraft server be gracefully stopped if I reboot the system or would that be a crash? Thanks again!

@Tmk
Thanks a lot for the bug report and sorry for the late response!
Previously screen was used to select a session with a specific well defined name however apparently screen selects anything starting with the specified pattern. This let to some confusion between the server and the idle_server. To circumvent this behaviour I simply changed the naming schema for the idle_server.

Hello, thanks for the nice package!

The idle server is not working for me, "An error occured while trying to reset the idle server!". Once the minecraft server sleeps I cannot reconnect from the game client. I don't understand the script enough, unfortunately. I made a screenshot [1], maybe somebody has an idea?

Strange, it is working well for me on two different machines and on a clean installation. The game_command function in the script [1] apparently is not working as expected for you. The logic of this function is like this: enable logging for the screen session to file /tmp/minecraftd_screen_command_dump.txt, trigger the command, wait, disable logging for the screen session, cat file, rm file. I assume you installed screen properly, performed no partial upgrade, your /tmp folder is configured and you have shut down your server at least once since you updated to screen version 4.4.0, then I would guess the logfile is not set correctly. Try issuing the following command:
sudo -u minecraft screen -S minecraft -X logfile "/tmp/minecraftd_screen_command_dump.txt"
and see if that fixes the issue for the currently running server. Be sure to check every of the above mentioned pitfalls before!

Thank you for this great package!

When I run minecraftd command <command>, I always get the following:

cat: /tmp/minecraftd_screen_command_dump.txt: No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove '/tmp/minecraftd_screen_command_dump.txt': No such file or directory

Remember to close all minecraft server sessions prior to upgrading GNU screen since you can not reattach to the previous session [1] after the upgrade.

The recent commit changes a few things in the script:
* Handle server command output completely through screen instead of relying on a possible outdated log file. (Implemented in the game_command function.) The default screen command dump resides in /tmp.
* LOGPATH is not needed anymore.
* Unite various java options into one lengthier SERVER_START_CMD.
* Update configuration file accordingly.

Is there a way to terminate the minecraftd console window without killing the server?

edh commented on 2016-05-20 10:05

In a recent commit I changed how the idle server behaves if an admin is connected to the console. To be specific: The player checking is paused as long as someone is
attached to the session. Not only does it make sense for any admin which wants to monitor the console, it also removes annoying list invocations from the console while e.g. typing in it.
In case someone was relying on the previous state, please be sure to let me now ASAP and I will revert the change if necessary.
