Download OS X Server 5 For Mac

Hello everyone, how are you all doing today? I hope you are all having a great day so far. My week has been pretty good but we are really busy here at the Oxavi Group offices. Our boss has told us to start working on a new project which happens to be a brand new web site called iOSMode. What will it be about? Well it will be a web site focused on Apple’s iOS devices, mainly the iPhone and the iPad. It will be just as awesome as MacHeat. Once it is done I will let you all know, anyway please read on…

Today we will feature a must download software made by Apple themselves. The underrated and beautiful OS X Server. Yes, I know most of you would rather have a Linux server or even a Windows server but to be honest, I think people need to take a closer look at the OS X Server, it is stable, doesn’t require many resources and most of all, it is pretty damn safe. Let’s find out what makes the OS X Server so good.


What Is OS X Server?

Designed for OS X and iOS devices, OS X Server makes it easy to share files, schedule meetings, synchronize contacts, develop software, host your own website, publish wikis, configure Mac, iPhone, and iPad devices, remotely access your network, and more.

OS X Server is an application you can add to OS X right from the Mac App Store. Anyone can quickly and easily turn a Mac into a server that’s perfect for home offices, businesses, schools, developers, and hobbyists alike.

Here’s what you’ll get with OS X Server:

File Sharing

• File sharing for Mac, PC, iPhone and iPad
• Standards-based SMB, AFP, and WebDAV file services
• Flexible file permissions
• Spotlight searching

Profile Manager

• Simplified management and deployment of iOS and OS X.
• Distribution of licensed apps and books purchased from the Volume Purchase Program to users or devices
• Install Software Updates on devices running iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan
• Device Enrollment Program integration
• Web-based administration console
• Self-service user portal for clearing passcodes, remote lock, and remote wipe

Caching Server

• Speed up the download of software distributed by Apple
• Locally cache apps, books, iTunes U, software updates, and OS X Recovery images
• Accelerate the download of iCloud data, including documents in iCloud Drive and photos.
• Fault-tolerant design with multiserver cache replication and load balancing
• No client configuration required

Xcode Server

• Use Xcode to create continuous integration bots that build, analyze, and test on any Mac running OS X Server
• Configure bots to integrate at a specific time, or continually as code is committed to the repository
• Automate testing of OS X and iOS apps, executing on multiple connected iOS devices
• Host your own Git repositories on OS X Server or connect to remote Git or Subversion hosts
• Remotely access detailed integration summaries and nightly builds using the Web interface

Time Machine

• Provide a backup destination for Mac computers on your network
• Monitor which computers have backed up, when they last backed up, and size of backup
• Set limits on the amount of Time Machine storage a user can use

Calendar Server

• Share calendars, schedule meetings and events, and book conference rooms
• Standards-based CalDAV server for access from Mac, iPad, iPhone, and PC
• View availability with free/busy lookups
• Email invitations and push notifications

Contacts Server

• Synchronize contacts with Mac, iPad, and iPhone
• Allow multiple users to access and update contacts
• Standards-based CardDAV server

Wiki Server

• Point-and-click page edit to change formatting and insert images, movies, and attachments
• Access controls
• Tags and comments
• Revision history
• Document sharing
• Quick Look previews

Mail Server

Here’s a recipe for setting up Minecraft server on OS X. Since I don’t fully trust the server not to have some security hole, I want it to run as user nobody so it doesn’t have a lot of permissions. And I also want it to restart automatically when I reboot the computer. Finally I show how to backup the worlds you create.

There’s three parts to this hint.


1) creating the launchDaemon that starts the minecraft server.
2) how to turn it on and off
3) maintaining backups

The first step is to download the minecraft server jar file from the Mojang website. Currently that site is https://minecraft.net/download but that might change in the future. And currently the jar filename is: minecraft_server.1.6.2.jar, but that will change too.

1) Creating a place for it. When you run the jar the first time it’s going to create a lot of files and subdirectories the in the current working directory (CWD) so we want to create a nice place to do this. It doesn’t matter where this it, but the permissions on the folder do matter. I put mine in /opt

Now if your user name is bob then move the minecraft jar into place:

and make sure the top level folder and executable are owned by root. This will assure that no one can change the jar file without root access. Since the system is going to invoke this file automatically you don’t want it changing with simple user level permissions.

Minecraft is going to run as user nobody, and it will need permission to modify the state folder contents.

2) Creating the launch daemon:

As root, create the file

The file name is not important, but it’s tradition to name the Daemon for website that it came from. You need to create this as root or otherwise assure it’s owned by root:wheel and can be read. It’s not an executable.

The above is plist speak to tell it that it should change into the working directory where we want it to store its data, then launch the java jar with a memory size of 1G. You can adjust the values for your system if that turns out to be too much. It also tells it to run the job as the username nobody. And it will start the server when the Daemon is loaded, which happens either at boot time or if you explicitly tell the daemon to load.

The key thing here is that the paths to the “state” folder and the executable are hardcoded. You must change these paths if you set this up in a different place.

2) testing it. first make sure you have java installed. /usr/bin/java -version if java is installed then this will reply with the java version at that path. If it’s not installed OSX will usually ask you if you want to install java and then automagically do this for you.

as root, (sudo -s -) run the following: launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/net.minecraft.plist

test to see if it worked:

does the output include something like this:

If so then the server jar is running and is running as nobody.

If not then you made a mistake. To help diagnose this try running the command right from the command line. note, at this point you are running the server as root. This is reasonably safe, assuming you trust mojang, to do for a moment just to eliminate the permission issues. If you are nervous, disconnect your ethernet cable for a moment.

You may see some java exceptions printed in the process, but if the program stays running then it’s working. Once it stops printing stuff out, type ctrl-c to kill it. List the current directory (state) and you will see a whole bunch of files and folders have been created. So now you know the program and the paths are right. You’ll need to find the error you made. Most likely a permissions issue.

2) controlling it. to load the server by hand:

it will start when you load it the first time.

to stop the server temporarily

Here I used the name not the path. The name is one given in the plist file not the actual file name. Normally you want to make these the same for sanity sake. This command stops the server but it doesn’t remove the autostart Daemon—next boot it will start again.

to restart it after stopping:

to unload the daemon (so it won’t autostart at boot)

If you edit the plist file, you need to stop the server and unload the daemon then (re)load the daemon. Otherwise it will ignore your edits till next reboot.

3) backing up the state. from time to time you may want to back up the state of your minecraft world and the server configuration (banned-IP, whitelist, config…)

To do that:

this command will create a snapshot backup of the state of your system. This will look like a copy off the state directory tree and files. But it’s not a copy. It’s a hardlinked image. It doesn’t actually occupy any (significant) disk space unless your world is changed. The command names the new snapshot for the date and time down to the hour.

You can restore an older image to being the current state by deleting the current state folder and moving the state folder from the image folder to the minecraft working directory.
