    I've been thinking about creating a folder using SFTP under the main directory and install minecraft on it! Let's say /Minecraft - Any ideas how to install Minecraft on said folder? I am guessing I just transfer minecraft files to it and launch using the command line! How do I do that? I also want to create a user name and a password for a user with privileges to "ONLY" access that specific folder: /Minecraft

    Any help would be very much appreciated,

    Thanks Michael :)

    Hello Michael,

    The article Infopro linked you to makes it very simple to setup a Minecraft server. The minecraft server software is simply a jar. You'll need to provide an init script, capture logging, and do other things to get your minecraft server operating properly. I recommend you investigate one of the all-in-one installers listed at the bottom of the article. They make it very simple to get new minecraft servers up and running.

    Thank you so much for all the info. I found this article that is very helpful in installing minecraft but I am still unclear on how to make the user access "ONLY" that specific folder and use it to play! Thanks again.
