Just for some background,
I'm running Ubuntu Server 11.10 and have installed minetest using the launchpad.net ppa.
I tried setting .minetest directory recursively to 777, no dice
I tried running it with sudo, same thing
I even tried running it from screen, inside screen, still no luck.
The world data is running from inside /home/(myusername)/.minetest/worlds/world
Could there be some sort of an issue with it running in my user folder?
I found that if I have the world under the root account and run everything as root, it'll stay connected.
I copied my world folder over from /home/(myusername)/.minetest/worlds/world
to /root/.minetest/worlds/world (You'll have to sudo this one).
next, I ran "sudo su" to get logged in as root.
I ran screen from here
inside screen I ran minetestserver
Finally I disconnected from screen and exited out of "su" and the ssh session.
My server instance stayed running.
After thinking more on the issue for a few hours, I went ahead and moved my .minetest/worlds/world folder elsewhere on the server and used the "--world=" option. everything worked fine.
I'm thinking this is/was an issue with the home folder encryption that I enabled when I installed the OS. I'm up and running, but I thought I'd share all this in case it's worth noting for others trying to run a server.
