Ubuntu – Interact with Minecraft Server


I have a Minecraft sever running that gets started automatically using the init.d scripts. Now I want to be able to give myself admin privileges but I need to send commands to the server. How can I do that without stopping it and running it manually?

  • When you ssh, you need to pass a -t option to allow screen to work. Or you could add your username to the ops.txt file.

    But, what you really want is a full-featured bells-and-whistles script that uses screen to interact with the Minecraft server. Check out Minecraft Sheller. I think it provides what you want and more.
