    Have you port forwarded?

    I would assume that you hosted your server internally (AKA Lan?)

    The problem you're facing sounds like it's caused by an un-opened port. Here are your solutions:

    1. Forward port using: http://portforward.com/
    2. Buy a server
    3. Use Hamachi: https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi/download.aspx (discouraged because people are not likely to download a software just so they can join your server)

    My server can hold up to 20 people but we only ever have like 5 online at a time, how do you recommend we get more players?

    One thing I noticed with people is that they want to join your server MORE if you become more selective with the type of people you accept into the server.

    Try building your server up around a theme (Themed freebuilding or themed survival) and advertise on the official forum (I don't recommend this because 90% of people from there will probably be trash) or have your servers listed in one of the several server status indicator websites (Minequery or minestatus.net)

    Try getting your friends to play too. Having consistent people in the server who make valuable things help build up popularity overtime as new people visit.

    I got a question.
    I got OP and admin group using permissions 3.1.6, admin group has wildcard permissions.
    however not even the console is permitted to use /whitelist add <name>
    says, I'm sorry, Dave, I cannot let you do that.

    Post both your permission config file and OP.txt using the code quote feature.

    ops.txt

    permissions are saved in our sql database, but admin group got '*' as permission
    *facepalm*
    heres the config


    Code:
    permissions:
        storage:
            type: SQL
            dbms: 'MYSQL'
            uri: 'jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/minecraft'
            username: '*******'
            password: '*******'

    That is very odd. Are you able to pull your MySQL tables? Also, is your name in red in the server?

    If all else fails, regenerate Bukkit.jar server files. Also, what type of Permission plugin are you using?

    ah thank you, i just realised (due to a crash) we did not have the whitelister plugin installed.
    sorry for taking up your time

    There IS a default /whitelist add command for Bukkit. I want to make sure that your server's generating all property files correctly.

    I started my server before I went to bed last night running 1gb ram, I woke up to find 2.768Million lines of error.

    Here's the first part that started it
    Anyone know what could've caused that and what I can do to fix?

    Based on what I can see you have a chunk error @
    Code:
    2011-08-26 02:48:47 [INFO] Chunk file at -1,-24 is in the wrong location; relocating. (Expected -1, -24, got -2, -1)
    2011-08-26 02:48:47 [INFO] Chunk (-2, -1) stored at (-1, -24)
    You can try to fix the world using Chunkster: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/admin-chunkster.8186/

    Thanks I'll try and repair :)

    I just bought a new VPS, 64bit centos 5.4 4gig ram. I can't run the server with more then 1gig ram without getting errors or being told I don't have enough memory. Apparently I might have 32bit java but I'm centos illiterate and really can't get 64bit java or 4gig ram working, are you able to help me on teamviewer or with my vps details to get my server running off 4gig ram or even 3gig I might be able to pay you.

    Would really appreciate it, thanks.

    edit; more information here: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/installing-64-bit-java-linux.33499/

    There's no linux O/S with my VPS provider, only centos / ubuntu & I only just purchased for this vps 2 days ago so I really can't change VPS Provider so I have to use centos 5.4

    Are you able to help me at all with Centos? Thanks a lot for your help so far.

    @M1sT3rM4n you should have a spoiler with plugins that most servers use and maybe sections for different servers like PvP, Build, RPG. This would help people find good plugins for their server

    If I am not lazy I might just do a spoiler section in the first post xD

    Oh no, I've got quite a few PMs because people somehow think that just because I post a lot in the Bukkit section that I must be a plugin developer!

    I was actually thinking about making a thread like this, or alternatively, one to list plugins to help servers get started.
    Unless you were planning on making one, I would love to compile of list of plugins to help servers get off the ground.

    The permission.yml file that comes with Bukkit when you first start the server is only a shell (AKA a concept Bukkit team's working on.) You still need an independent plugin to handle permissions.

    I dont think bPermissions uses the permissions.yml file, so just ignore it.
    Please post your <worldname>.yml so we can help you with permissions.
