    I run the server in a screen (debian) with screen -d -m ./minecraft.sh
    Today i accidently wrote a "ü" inside the screen session:

    Now i cannot write anything anymore in the screen window - i can deattach.
    How can i stop the server? we have no OPs.

    I tried: screen -S 2656 -X stuff '/stop'`echo -ne '\015'`
    but not working.

    ctrl + c should work, alternatively you can use ctrl + d to kill the screen completely.

    Stop the application using Ctrl + Alt + Del.

    That will not help a lot on a Debian System :)

    The data should be fine (I've never experienced a corrupt map from force closing with CTRL+C or issuing kill -9) but there's always a chance. Try stopping it in-game assuming you have OP access first though.

    Thank u all for your help, i waited for the scheduled backup, did /f lock and /f save and terminated the screen then.
    No corrupt map, factions is fine - thank u all!

    ps: we do not have any OPs (normally) because we use the console or PermissionsBukkit for everything :)
