Ascii Bukkit Menu

Ascii Bukkit Menu

What is it?

Ascii Bukkit Menu is a Bukkit server manager. Written with bash, designed to be simple and robust. Should work out of the box on most distros. Specificly designed to run on a headless server via a ssh session.

Features:

  • Uses screen to keep server session running in background, can reconnect at anytime.
  • Start/Stop/Restart commands.
  • Send commands directly to bukkit server.
  • Automatically update Bukkit server to latest recommended.
  • Bukkit server log rotation. Rotates server.log on each start, keeps last 20 compressed.
  • If using Ramdisks, will automatically copy worlds between ramdisk and localdisk. Then runs an md5sum to verify consistency of the data.
  • Start and Stop server on boot using non-interactive mode.
