      Forums are online again after a maintenance.   18/03/17

      MTA Forums maintenance is completed, although some automatic time-heavy tasks are still in process and will be finished eventually in background. Expect some features such as Forum Search to not display all results until all processes are finished. Please let us know if you spot a forum feature that worked correctly before the maintenance but does not work anymore now. Thanks. --MTA Team

You need to install a package called screen:

yum install screen
screen -S MTASA
screen -ls
screen -r <ID_OF_MTASA>

Once you're connected to the screen session you can disconnect using CTRL+A then D and reconnect later using the last of above commands, also don't run your server as root, it doesn't need root privileges to run and it could be insecure if you load a suspicious resource or if someone else manage to take control over your server.
