MineOS+ is a specialized distribution of the Micro Core Linux operating system designed specifically to host and control Minecraft servers. It is designed to be as small as possible, to get the highest possible performance out of your server installation. MineOS+ can also easily be installed in a ramdisk configuration, meaning the entire Minecraft server and world file are loaded into memory, reducing server lag and increasing performance.
MineOS+ comes with an administrative web-panel for easy server administration that is accessible through any browser that can access your server. You can create new Minecraft servers, stop or start your servers, back them up and restore them, make maps of your worlds that your users can see, change server properties, and issue commands to the console all from a single page.
MineOS+ is currently not much more then a fixed, tweaked and updated version of the original MineOS with a new look, but will soon become much more. See the To-Do List to see what’s planned. Another good read is Phant0mX’s vision for MineOS+
MineOS was originally created by William Dizon to be a powerful, compact dedicated minecraft server distro with the bare minimum of features to fully administer a fully functional minecraft server.
Today, the MineOS+ team has taken all these values to heart and taken a good look at what we want to achieve. We have opted for more features, easier set-up and administration, as well as a completely revamped, stylish web admin panel to fit in with the modern feel of the 21st century.
Stay tuned. Changelog
