Getting started with Pterodactyl
Pterodactyl is a powerful control panel which allows you to manage game servers.
On Slicie, we automatically create servers with Pterodactyl already installed and ready to go. You don't need to learn how to setup a server with Pterodactyl, you simply need to setup the individual games you want to play.
After creating the server, you'll see a icon in the navigation for managing the server.
If you don't see that icon, click "Servers" in the admin area (step 2 in this guide). On that page, each server will have a icon which brings you to the correct page for managing your server.
On the page to manage your server, you'll see 3 buttons that allow you to control the "power" of your server.
Your server may not be running; if it's stopped, go ahead and click "Start".
You might need to accept an EULA
Wait for the server to start. Some game servers, including Minecraft, will require you to agree to their EULA; make sure you accept it. If you don't do this, your game server will appear to be running, but you won't be able to connect to it (the next step).
Wait for the game server to initialize
Even after accepting the EULA (which might not happen for every game), most games will have a "booting up" phase. Minecraft, for instance, will generate the world the first time it boots. You basically just have to sit around and wait before you can play. Some game servers, like Minecraft, will show progress percentages that are extremely innaccurate; just wait a couple of minutes.
