Is anyone running a dedicated server in Linux (Ubuntu)?

If so, please tell me how you got survival mode to work. None of my config file settings seem to work. I can only turn it on by issuing the server command "/set enable_damage = true" but it still doesn't show the health meter and whenever I reset the server it turns off again.

To be clear, I'm talking about the dedicated server, not the server that you can run within the client. That server runs fine.

Code: Select all
$ minetestserver --version
Minetest 0.4.16 (Linux)
Build info: VER=0.4.16 BUILD_TYPE=None RUN_IN_PLACE=0 USE_GETTEXT=1 USE_SOUND=1 USE_CURL=1 USE_FREETYPE=1 USE_LUAJIT=1 STATIC_SHAREDIR="/usr/share/games/minetest"

Where is your minetest.conf stored?

You should probably create one with the settings you want and use it like this:

minetestserver --config path/to/conf

That works 100% for me (Ubuntu 16.04)

I'm assuming you want creative disabled and damage enabled. Put this in your config file:
Code: Select all
enable_damage=true
creative_mode=false
