Level.dat and Restart error.

  • Hello All,

    One week ego I started Minecraft server. I successfully installed everything smooth.

    I installed pufferpanel for better overview for usage of RAM and restarting server.

    But, I have one issue that I'm dealing with and I can't solve it.
    Sometimes my VPS stays at higher level for usage of RAM, even if I restart Minecraft server via pufferpanel. But, that's not the case. The problem shows when I start to stop Minecraft server. I see in console that everything stopped, then I restart VPS and after I start server in pufferpanel. There is some sort of problem with level.dat and that's it can't be recovered?
    When I enter the server, after restart I have my equipment reset, holding only basic essential kit tools.
    Is there any solution for this? It makes me mad, what is missing... permissions?


    Please, if somebody could give any hint how to solve this, I would be grateful. Thanks!
    Btw. That doesn't happen everytime, but almost always when I turn off the server via pufferpanel, then I restart VPS and turn on Minecraft server again.

  • If you think it might be file permission errors, make sure that files in /var/lib/pufferd/servers/[SERVERUUID] are all owned, grouped, is read and writable by pufferd

  • Could you provide me with permissions commands? I used few commands,
    for example chown -R pufferd:pufferd /var/lib/pufferd/servers but I'm not sure if this did anything. Could you give me some examples for permissions?
