I want to create server. First I must reformat my hard drive though. ( I want this thing to be purely used for minecraft) What OS do you suggest? I think I'm going to use Ubuntu 11.10. it's my first time using linux. It's my first time reformatting a hard-drive and installing a different OS
I've been using ubuntu. once you get it all set up (wich isn't very hard) it runs perfectly. I've had zero crashes for.. as long as its ran actually. I've had it running since minecraft 1.6 or 1.8
Whatever Linux system you're most comfortable with. The Windows version seems crashy as hell (I've tried both, running it on Linux experienced no problems compared to the handful I had running it on Windows).
Bukkit?
BackTrack :v:
[QUOTE=TheSporeGA;34762837]Bukkit?[/QUOTE] Bukkit is not an operating system.
ScientificLinux. All the benefits of CentOS (stable as fuck), except there's actually still people behind the project, CentOS is pretty much dead in the water right now.
Debian or Ubuntu Server
Ubuntu, Cent, or Debian really.
Ubuntu
MineOS.
Use NetBSD, it's GUI is amazing and easy to use.
Slackware!
linux :P
We use CentOS for a few production nodes. 5.7 running java 6 on one, with the least issues. Java 7 with a bit more issues but still seems pretty reliable.

[QUOTE=FlubberNugget;34792830]Ubuntu desktop is horrible for server usage Ubuntu server is a lot different though[/QUOTE] Oh yeah. i was getting ubuntu server

[QUOTE=zzaacckk;34798689]TCAdmin?

And TC-Admin 2.0 is quite good, nothing "yucky" about it. Does the job and has everything needed to manage your server.

windows 98
[QUOTE=TheDecryptor;34799732]Then don't install X11?[/QUOTE] X is preinstalled on ubuntu, along with unity.
What packages should I get? I plan on adding a custom mod using PHP as a processor ( this mod will allow the user to go on a webpage and add certain stuff to their characters and store some things away in a "heaven vault" ) Yeah. That's it. (for now) [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/UzJWB.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/rBtcj.jpg[/IMG]
