SSH Question

Question

Posted

[s]Yes, I know SSH, I'm using it right atm.

I run minecraft on a headless server, in my own house. The problem that I have with it is thus:

Whenever I close the terminal to it, or put my main computer (one I'm SSHing on) to standby or shut down, It closes out the Minecraft server as well.

I thought SSH was to configure the computer, not run programs on the fly. Or maybe I don't understand the way it works.

Should just put it on the VGA side of my monitor, if nothing else.[/s]


Oh, a friend told me about screen, I looked up the command, and presto.

If you're using this server to host Minecraft, I highly recommend [url="http://marcuswhybrow.net/minecraft-server-manager/"]Minecraft Server Manager[/url]. It will take care of everything for you, including starting your Minecraft servers for you at boot, managing updates, and doing regular backups. That said, MSM uses [i]screen[/i] because [i]screen[/i] is an awesome utility. I consider it essential on all my systems (especially the headless).
