    I have an odd problem with my server. It will crash every other day, and java will shut completely down saying it encountered a fatal error. According to the logs it could be permissionsex causing it by i believe its a problem with my system, because alot of people use PEX with no problem.

    I have these few stacktraces, each from the 3 latest crashes:

    When i hit version in console i get the following git-Bukkit-jenkins-CraftBukkit-162 (MC: 1.2.5) (Implementing API version 1.2.5-R4.1-MCPC-SNAPSHOT)

    Does anyone have a suggestion of how to eleminate this problem?

    Try putting your server on a periodic restart. I don't have any experience with Linux distributions, but it could be an error with the amount of JVM space (which decreases as your memory is formatted)

    I see you're using openjdk. Should use the normal Oracle Java, way better.

    I'm getting this problem on a dev server I am running, the version being "git-Bukkit-1.2.5-R4.0-37-gc0ad5f6-b2257jnks (MC: 1.2.5) (Implementing API version 1.2.5-R4.1-SNAPSHOT)"

    A copy of one of the dump files can be found here.
    This dump file indicates that the error was caused by corrupted data inside a file being used by a plugin (in my case, Death Penalty, but I assume it's not limited to that)

    I have deleted the file, and let it regenerate, and it seems to be fine now, I haven't seen it crash yet, but I am searching to see if anyone else has had a problem like this. I will, of course, relay fixes back here if I find any.

    I guess installing Oracle Java is worth is shot, even though it seems like a pain in the ass.

    If you have a good tutorial you should be fine :)

    "ulimit -c unlimited" Have you tried that? It might help. But also try using Oracle. I use both, =/

    What does that command do? Is it part of the start up argument?

    I found some nice tutorials on youtube on how to install Oracle Java on Linux, but which linux OS are you using?

    You may have a plugin crashing your system outright. Have you been able to replicate it without plugins?
    Also, I do suggest Oracle Java. See my signature for a tutorial (its still valid, even if the versions are a bit different now).

    Hey thanks for all the help guys. I managed to install oracle java, but just now the server/java crashed again. This is very strange.

    This was the error log it dumped.

    Its very strange.

    Ok i think im close to figuring out what it is. It might be related to when i open the permissions file while the server is running. I will do some more testing later
