ability to restart a game remotely
I am jumbled on terminology so I am not sure what I am looking for.
For those that play / host Minecraft, maybe you already know.
I host a server at home. Once in a while it crashes and it is in need of stopping and restarting. I have to wait till I get home to do so since I presently launch and leave it run in a shell.
I'd like to be able to log in remotely to the server and stop / start / restart the game.
Is that a daemon?
Would it go in init.d ( Suse )
The game itself accepts the stop command to safely shutdown, but that would be another thing altogether I know.
Someone give be a nudge in the right direction please?
well, words finally came to me : for anyone else looking::
