Owner’s Corner: Start Script Part 2

As I pointed out last week, we use a generic server-start script. That needed to go. It was built to accommodate a bunch of different configurations, but we use a very specific configuration. To that end, I've re-written the script, and commented it out like a good little coder should do.

The macro-level view of things that I changed:

  • Removed all the multi-server stuff...we're only running 1 at a time.
  • Remove all the auto-backup stuff for bukkit and bukkit plugins, we do all that manually. I don't like crap updating itself without some review.
  • Added some command-line flags so we have server control with a few less steps
  • Cleaned up all unnecessary menus and log messages.

So, without further ado, here's the new script:

For the record, we're not putting this into production yet; I'll be testing this on the test server before deploying it live. We'll still have the old one which is working if we need it.
