For the record, I keep updating the tutorial on http://wiki.333networks.com/index.php/T ... n_On_Linux
and will not paste this link at every post in this thread. Changes can be found in the view history

I assume you mean writing the logfile to a different file before restarting the server? Done! If that's not what you meant, then please, what do you have in mind?

I never worked with UTPG, it's worth to explore this too. Would you perhaps be able to help write this part of the tutorial? PM for wiki access.
MrLoathsome wrote:Also, will you be including info on having the UT server running "Headless" via Xvfb?
In the tutorial I use and briefly explain "screen", because then you can still view the server output at any given moment. I should perhaps clarify that this is done over SSH/PuTTy, and that the server does not require any in/output peripherals and/or monitor. Xvfb is just a fancy tool to write all server output to /dev/null; in that respect I could also run the server as something like this
- Code: Select all
~$ ./serverstart.sh > /dev/null
Apart from that, there are plenty of other ways to run the server on a remote location. Surely another thing to add to the tutorial. Again, please feel free to help and describe!
At this point the tutorial is growing so big that I should split it up in 4 different sections: Arch install+config, network/port setup, UT install+config and how to start/run the server. That would allow for different blocks/parts to choose from, like the original/goty install, utpg or plain copy/paste, as well as xvfb, screen or other terminal multiplexers.
