A comprehensive start up script for Minecraft and Bukkit servers.
Like you, I want to modify my startup script when necessary. MSM was born out of this process, and will continue to be improved in this way.
Periodically create WorldEdit compatible snapshots and then restore regions in-game to protect against griefers. Or backup the entire server directory for complete protection.
As long as you have an
/etc/init.d directory your good to go. MSM is only a single script written in bash, which automatically starts up and shuts down your Minecraft servers.
Group jar files according to where they where downloaded from. Make sure your server is always using the latest version, by automatically downloading new files.
Configure how MSM operates in the
/etc/msm.conf file. Sensible defaults mean you won't need to alter much, but allow changing anything you can think of.
MSM watches a server's log file to determine exactly when a command has finished, making restarting, backing up and other non-instant actions return control as soon as possible.
Keep your players informed with specifc, dynamic and configurable in-game broadcasts. Warn players that a server is shutting before actually issuing the command.
Readable code means less bugs, easier fixes, simpler updates, and lowers the learning curve for new contributors to the project. Why not the code and start today.
Out of the box cron script provided for backups, logrolls and more.
