    Hi, How do I enable creative mode? Do I just edit one or more of the following files? Do I typically do all of the minecraft/bukkit tweaks by editing one or more of these files? If so, please elaborate on which ones. Thank you

    Thanks JamiePhonic. Did so, reset server, but didn't appear to take. How can I check?

    Setting gamemode in the server.properties only works for people joining the server for the first time. So to set someone to creative mode if they've joined the server before type /gamemode creative playernamehere.

    Thanks norsac321. Where do I type /gamemode creative playernamehere? In server.properties? From the minecraft client? If the minecraft client, how do I logon as an administrator so I can make such a change?

    You can do 2 things:
    1) Enter: 'gamemode creative playername' inside the console
    2) Enter: 'op yourname' inside the console and then enter: '/gamemode creative playername' inside the client

    Thanks DS1995. I know this is a stupid question, but what is the "console"? How do I open it? I just have a linux shell.
  8. if you don't mind players losing the content of their inventory, you can go to the folder where "craftbukkit.jar" is, then into the folder called "world", then the folder called "players" and delete everything in there.
    it's the quickest and simplest option, and since your switching to creative, it wont really matter if your players loose the stuff in their inventory.

    Console is a... console, like DOS-mode :p
    It's also called "Terminal" in UNIX-like systems

    You should have visible a console after runing bash file, or if u use server which was bought on some site, then you should have access to console from website

    Linux -> point 8

    I set up my server basically following https://forums.bukkit.org/threads/tutorial-centos-bukkit-installation.56371/. To start the service, I type "service minecraft start" in the Linux bash shell, it runs in the background, and returns to the bash shell, and doesn't display the console.

    Just to see what happens, I stopped the service, and then manually started it using
    java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true
    as described by your referenced http://wiki.bukkit.org/Setting_up_a_server.

    This time, it didn't run in the background, but started the server, and then showed an > prompt. Ah ha, the elusive and fabled shell!

    Running the service in the background seems like the best approach, so maybe the question is now "how do I access the console when running the service in the background"?

    That is using screen to put the process in the background. You should be able to open a shell session and type 'screen -r' to connect to that screen session and get to your console.

    When you're done, press CTRL-A, then press D to exit from the screen session without closing it.
