Hello, I am managing a MC server with the Owner. And recently he has given me the PuTTy login details to start servers if they crash. We are using bungee and there is multiple screens that I can connect to for diffirent types of servers.

Anyways I was trying to fix up one of our servers (Creative) when I was detaching from the screen it said [screen is terminating] and now it's gone from the list of screens when I do screen -ls. I am a complete noob and I have no idea on what to do all I know how to do is the commands he gave me which was just screens to connect to servers. Can someone walk me through this to get the server back on my screen list?!!? Please help me!!

Is this of any assistance? I'm not familiar with this myself, but did try to find an answer.




If this is of no use, unless someone else steps forward, like NickAu1 stated, you may need to check with your distro forum for a more precise answer.

For others that are wondering...Putty is a emulator shell/terminal for secure telent/ssh connections. If you close the window the session is terminated. If it's timing out then that is more than likely a misconfigured config on the servers side. As far as commands go they are generally the same in linux. However, some websites don't go into more details of the extra parameters. http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/print/9030259/Linux_Command_Line_Cheat_Sheet  Examlpe: rm (removes files) it will remove directories as well just using rm -r or rm -rf to force the deletion of the directory. Be careful with this and be sure to check the files you are deleting! A mistake can have it's conseqences. It's best to go to the parent directory and then remove the sub directory. mv (move file command) this can also be used to rename the files. IE: mv file.txt file2.txt For future reference, I felt that all of that should also be included in this post. Sorry for long winded response to your specific question. This should help you about your screen commands...https://kb.iu.edu/data/acuy.html
