[TUT] Setting up MTA server on Ubuntu Server 12.04.1 LTS

Recommended Posts

  • 2 months later...

I'm not using screen here, I use service mtasa stop/start to start/stop the MTA server. It's my personal preference.

To set that up, you would want to set up a shell script to run the screen command to start the MTA server, and modify the upstart job to point to the new shell script.

Can you please help me? How would I run this as a screen and then how would I access it as a screen to stop the server? Thanks

To start the server with screen you can use this command:

screen -S mta /something/server/mta-server 

And then press ctrl + A,D (hold ctrl while pressing both buttons) to leave the screen.

To resume the screen:

screen -r mta

That would start the mta server twice: it is started automatically on boot by Ubuntu (it's an Upstart job). Using that command will start it a second time (or fail). What you should do, however, is create a shell script in the mtasa directory that runs those commands, and then update the upstart job to point to the new shell script.
