Sorry, it’s a bit vague but I was in a rush to get the information out here as I worked this out myself because all the tutorials I have seen on how to do this have not worked.
Here we go:
Ensure VPS server is started up Connect via WinSCP (Download if you don’t have - Google it) and press Ctrl+P to open a PuTTY session Login as the user you got emailed/you set up Execute passwd Change your password *OPTIONAL: Add a new user by executing adduser USERNAME and set a password. Add your new user as a root user by editing the sudo config. Do this by executing the following commands:
Something like this will show:
root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
Add the following lime USER ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
Press Y to save and enter to confirm save location if needed. That’s the initial server setup done! (I WILL NOT BE CREATING A NEW USER ACCOUNT AT THE MOMENT!)
Make sure you are logged in as root!
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install python-software-properties sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre (If this doesn’t work, use sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre) cd /root/ wget http://mcmyadmin.com/Downloads/MCMA2_glibc25.zip apt-get install unzip unzip MCMA2_glibc25.zip mkdir McMyAdmin mv MCMA2_Linux_x86_64 McMyAdmin cd /usr/local wget http://mcmyadmin.com/Downloads/etc.zip unzip etc.zip cd /root/McMyAdmin/
Run MCMA2_Linux_x86_64 and set a password for the admin interface (WRITE IT DOWN).
./MCMA2_Linux_x86_64 -setpass YourPasswordHere
IF YOU HAVE A MCMYADMIN SERVER YOU WANT TO COPY OVER TO VPS FROM WINDOWS, DO THE BELOW STEPS ELSE DO NOT DO THEM AND JUMP TO THE CONTINUE FROM HERE SECTION
Perform the command /quit when it has all loaded up and says you must complete setup via web interface
Connect to the server and login as root.
Click the McMyAdmin folder and delete ALL THE CONTENTS EXCEPT MCMA2_Linux_x86_64
Drag and drop your existing server folder contents over. These will replace the ones you just deleted!
Install mono! sudo apt-get install mono-complete
Transfer the McMyAdmin.conf file to your local machine with WinSCP Open it with WordPad and edit the RAM (Java.Memory) as needed.
Copy it back to server and confirm overwrite. Then start a new PuTTY session closing the old one.
CONTINUE FROM HERE
PREPARING FOR SERVER START apt-get install screen
TO START THE SERVER IN FUTURE screen -S mcmyadmin cd /root/McMyAdmin mono McMyAdmin.exe
And you’re done. To change server settings, navigate to your server IP in your web browser followed by :8080, not :25565. This will show a McMyAdmin Control Panel. You can now edit server settings. To access server files, use WinSCP and navigate to /root/McMyAdmin/Minecraft
