Server Running Crash Course

3 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hey everyone. I've been interested in making a server for my custom modpack, but I know next to nothing about what to do, in every aspect. I've been trying to reach out to people via social media for advice, but I haven't gotten much response, so I wanted to reach out here.

 

I *have* looked at the Technic Tutorial for running a server, but as someone who knows minimal about PCs (but can learn) and has an expensive PC that I don't want vulnerable for attacks, I would like some more information just about running servers in general. Like what is a speed for it to be at? Should I go thru a hosting site or not? If so which one? (I'm willing to pay). What do the numbers all even mean? Some of these expect me to know how to upkeep a server but I don't know any coding at all. I can do BBCode okay, but HTML is still a struggle for me. I do understand what RAM is and some basic things, but a lot of it I just want to be sure on and I'm not.

 

What advice/steps would you give to someone who's never run a sever before but is interested in learning?

In order to make a server for Modpack without a ServerPack, please read this tutorial from the Technic Help Site: https://technicpack.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/203799459-How-to-create-a-server-for-your-Platform-modpack

See I was looking over/following that tutorial but this warning at the top

WARNING: Please note that running server software on your computer without a clear understanding of what you are doing may seriously harm your system and lead to vulnerabilities.

Left me very wary and I want to try and learn more about server software and what it does and good tips on RAM, websites to use for hosting, etc, so I don't leave my PC vulnerable, or just heck it up completely.

      Hey. There are many people on here MUCH smarter than I when it comes to these fixes. Could someone please point out the error of my ways with this.
      My server will not start, and keep in mind this is the server directly downloaded from the Tekkit Legends page on the website.
      What my CMD spit out: https://pastebin.com/ycQE3rki
      What my start.bat file looks like: java -Xmx2G -Xms1G -XX:MaxPermSize=128m -jar "TekkitLegends.jar" nogui
      pause
       
      Any and all help is appreciated. Thank you very much

      So I've been trying to open the technic launcher but it won't load past the logo.

      I tried launching my server for my friends and I to join and It kept on crashing and i couldn't type 'stop' into console to shut down the console (An unknown error occurred while attempting to perform this command) when my friends tried to join it said that they had timed out and i do not think this has something to do with my port forwarding or my ip changing

      Hi, i've been playing for about two weeks on this server and i've never changed anything to it in the settings. Since about a day or two ago my server kept crashing at random times i'm not sure if the world is corrupt or some of the mods aren't working properly.
