    Minecraft RemoteToolkit
    -Less downtime, more fun for your players, more power to you!

    Are you a Minecraft server administrator? Do you value up-time and stability? Do you fancy the ability to remotely control your server, both in-game and out of game, in a myriad of useful ways from a plethora of different devices?
    If you answered yes to any of the above, then the Minecraft RemoteToolkit is for you!

    What the Minecraft RemoteToolkit Plugin and Wrapper do for you:
    • Provides almost perfect server uptime with no need for action from an owner/administrator!
    • Have your server save and restart at any time period with configurable restart warnings!
    • The Toolkit guarantees a restart within the set restart period, even if your server crashes, becomes unresponsive, or encounters a "SEVERE" exception!
    • Remotely control every function of the Toolkit, even from your smart phone!
    • Full remote console access via telnet with support for multiple terminal types!
    • Telnet daemon conforms to current Telnet related RFCs!
    • Customizable alert messages!
    • Fully extendable though 3rd party modules!
    • Full feature set works with most craftbukkit builds!
    • Most features work with any Minecraft server variation, even vanilla!
    • Telnet can be disabled!

    Map backups integrated into this would be great. So far so good though, this has improved server stability and uptime greatly!

    Do take a look at the backup preview. It is more or less what I will be integrating. I haven't heard much from the community about my work on it yet :/

    There a way I can avoid server from being shut down by exiting my SSH console?

    Open screen first, then launch the server.
    Open a screen with the command screen and launch the server as normal.
    To return to the screen when you next log in, use the command screen -x

    ehh? it even doesn't let ,me set memory heap to 2512M it just uses 1024M I configured the config.. still does it.
  8. Offline


    I just tested it and it works fine. What properties file are you altering? How do you know that 2512MB hasn't been allocated to the heap?

    Towny :p It can tell you how much the server is running on.

    Download the following file and run it in place of Minecraft_RKit.jar (still using user:pass)

    It will give you a line that you will need to post here.

    I love the idea of a backup plugin. Especially the incremental backup idea. One thing i'd like is to have a periodic full backup done as well. Say, full backup every Sunday, then incremental the rest of the week. The idea of having a large number of incremental backups where if just 1 goes bad or gets corrupted I lose the ability to restore scares me a little.

    The other thing would be for it to not require manually shutting down the minecraft server. Have it automatically save the world, shutdown the server, do the backup and then start it back up. Hopefully this is on the radar.

    how do u make it so the consle saves peoples invotry before restart
  13. Offline


    I've got the same question as ZionHD.
    I noticed some duping on the server due to the
    Also when I do a manual save=all and a stop
    The inv didnt get saved.

    Thanks for youre time

    @ZionHD @Thjsbeer I have tested this myself with build #238 and it works. Are you using both the wrapper and plugin or just the wrapper?
  15. Offline


    Ah I totaly missed the plugin bit!
    Also will update craftbukkit this weekend,to a more current one.

    Totaly would love the backup implementation!

    Update to a newer craftbukkit build. It worked for me in build 238.

    Hello. I saw the .stopwrapper command earlier. I have not had success using it to end execution of the server without having to ctrl-c upon restart.

    I know it's 'near the top of the list,' but this needs to work pretty soon. My gut is telling me it's very dangerous to attempt to close a server by timing ctrl-c in the 1-2 seconds it takes for the restart process to begin.

    EDIT: Sorry, I know this is all still in alpha. I don't mean to sound pushy here, my bad.

    Can you tell me what happens when you use .stopwrapper? I have not seen it fail before.
  20. Offline


    Could we possibly get a lite version of this? Like how it used to be, just something to restart the server every X hours. [​IMG]

    The only extra major thing i've added since the first release apart from a bunch of tweaks is the Telnet console forwarder, which can be disabled in the config ;)

    *is waiting patiently for that .apk* <3

    Typing /stopwrapper as an op ingame results in a server reset. Neither /stopwrapper nor .stopwrapper within the server console has any effect (unknown console command).
  24. Offline


    Well, it's not an ingame command, it should not result in anything (/restartsrv is the in-game command for restarts). (on a side note, the way I have the bukkit plugin set up, it is logically impossible for it to respond to /stopwrapper as an in-game command).

    Just tested this with the newest bukkit build and it works fine.
    Does .help work as a console command?

    Edit: Stopwrapper does work as an in-game command, but that is due to bukkit treating any command that starts with "stop" as a stop command.

    Excellent addon! Just what we need, but I've run into some strange/unwanted behavior...
    mcrtoolkit 10b531
    craftbukkit build 247

    1. After first start, gets reduced to:
    #Minecraft Remote Toolkit Properties File
    #Sun Feb 06 08:28:32 CET 2011
    2. Startup halts and needs keyboard input to move on to starting the server after:
    INFO:Listening to port 2á551 with a connectivity queue size of 5.
    3. Extra char 'á' in 'INFO:Listening to port 2á551 with a connectivity queue size of 5.'

    4. Using Minecraft ReCon V0.32_9_1 Beta and sending the 'Restart now' command:
    ReCon returns: 'Server response: Success!'
    Server console restarts and after all the server startup-spam returns:
    Restarting server...
    Restarting server...
    Restarting server...
    Restarting server...
    Restarting server...
    Restarting server...
    Restarting server...
    Restarting server...
    Pressing enter in console then results in another restart and two "Unknown command"

    Remove the toolkit directory and try running it.
    Also, can you give me the version of your Runtime? (use java -version in a terminal)

    Edit: Also, what OS are you using?

    Number 1 from Toob is happening to me as well. It starts up however and seems to be somewhat working. It saves the map every 15-ish seconds though. I'm running Ubuntu. I tried java -version however it returned this error
    Error occurred during initialization of VM
    java.lang.Error: Properties init: Could not determine current working directory.
            at java.lang.System.initProperties(Native Method)

    When I removed the toolkit directory it recreated it on startup with the default messages.txt and, but it still created the that contains what should go in the

    Hmm, the new configuration layout has has had a few bugs. I'll look into it ASAP.

    @Toob @Alienware777 Problem should mostly be fixed now. Re-download it from the first post.

    While 'help' in my command line window gives the standard Minecraft server help, .help returns an unknown console command error.

    Are you positively sure you are running the wrapper? The wrapper commands are server mod/build independent. So if they are not working, the only likely cause of the problem would be that you are not using the wrapper.

    Check that telnet/the remote commands are working. If they aren't, then the wrapper probably isn't running.
    Oh, what OS are you using and what wrapper version are you using?

    I was confused here [​IMG]

    I was running these commands in the command window of the Craftbukkit Minecraft Server, not via Telnet to my machine's wrapper. I've got it working now. Thanks!

    The system is easy enough to use after using it once, but this post isn't completely clear on the distinction between the server and wrapper command lines.

    Last question: does hitting .stopwrapper via, say, Telnet over PuTTY instruct the server to save-all & stop, or is it a hard shutdown?
