I’m running a game server from my VNC, the problem is that the console for the server takes over the VNC. I can close it by using CTRL-C, but I want to keep it running and have access to the root at the same time. Is this possible? Thanks.

Whoops. I left a comment instead of an answer. Moved:

Try using a tool called tmux - It’s a text-based “window manager”. With it, you can have multiple sessions at once that you switch between, and even “detach” from the session and re-attach later while your server console keeps running.
