MineOS+ is a Linux distribution aimed at creating the smallest possible environment for a Minecraft server to run, retaining all Minecraft customizability and functionality while increasing usability. It is primarily designed at being run within a virtual environment (such as Virtualbox/VMWare) though it can be installed directly as the host OS of a computer as well. It is a fork of the Tiny Core Linux project 'microcore'.

Unique Characteristics of MineOS+[edit | edit source]

Connectivity and security[edit | edit source]

MineOS+ employs SSH, and SCP (ftp-like file transfer) over SSH. This permits safe and manageable access to all files on a server, easily edited and updated through SCP browsers such as WinSCP and Filezilla.

iptables is used for firewalling protection, openings available only for secured/required ports, such as 22 (SSH), 80 (generated maps to end-user), 8080 (web admin) and 25565 (minecraft), though these may be modified/added/removed as desired with ease.
