I am a very experienced web developer that has little experience with game servers and python. I'm trying to start a game server hosting site for a game called Minecraft but I can't figure out how to start the server. I keep getting error codes and I don't know how to get around it.
The requirements of this job:
-Show me how to use python to start a game server (a jar file).
-Show me how to capture the process pid so I can terminate the server. I don't want to start it and have it get lost forever in the processes eating up my cpu.
-Show me how I can use python to record the information. I don't know the best way to do this but I'm thinking it needs to be recorded to a mysql db.
To be perfectly honest I don't even know if this will work on my server. I've written a simple python file that executes the server on my own computer but the same setup does not work for my server (paid hosting). So I'm not sure if my server is blocking me from running the application. If someone can tell me this before they start that would be great. I'd rather not pay someone to tell me- "oh yah, this ain't going to work. 30 bucks prease!!".
Oh! And if you're Indian or Pakistani or what-have-you, do NOT just post some stupid s*** like- "Lets do it..." and expect me to even consider you. Not that your background has anything to do with it, I just see this ALL THE TIME from these two countries. You must be able to speak english and explain this to me (I love to learn). I'm sick of seeing your bids.... really.
Budget: $30 - cmon this is easy!
