Step #3 Minecraft Spigot Installation
I am stuck at step 3 in this guide Running a Spigot Minecraft Server on Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10.
It says to open a file. Is it already there or do I need to create it?
Great question! Step 3 is actually having you create a file using a text editor. If you're not familiar, a text editor, such as nano or vim, does exactly what it sounds like.
It lets you create a new file or alter existing ones. This is a common way to edit configuration files.
To do step 3 of Running a Spigot Minecraft Server on Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10, you can use nano with the following commands.
1) To create and open a new wrapper.sh file, run this command.
sudo nano /home/minecraft/server/wrapper.sh
2) Paste in the configuration information
#!/bin/bash cd /home/minecraft/server; java -XX:MaxPermSize=1024M -Xms512M -Xmx1536M -jar spigot.jar
3) Save and close out of the new wrapper.sh file by hitting:
ctrl+x, which initiates trying to close nano
- then '
y' for yes to save the file
- then '
enter' to confirm we are saving it as 'wrapper.sh'
If you run the
cat /home/minecraft/server/wrapper.sh command, the command line should print your handiwork to your screen.
