Today I tried to "install" a texture pack on my server (verygames) to let all my users use the same texture pack. To do this, I found a way with editing the server.properties at line "resource-pack=". I tried a pack on mediafire and it worked. Now I want to use something mine, my pack.
Here is what I did : copy the pack on the verygames storage through FTP, so it is accessible in "myftp"/games/minecraft/resourcepack/mypack.zip
In server.properties I edited the resource-pack line as the following : ftp ://LOGIN:PASSWORD@ftp.verygames.net/games/minecraft/resourcespacks/mypack.zip with the login and password that verygames provides for FTP access.
And it works. You read and wait a lot, now come the questions :
Is that secure ? Is there leaks which would allow to get the LOGIN and/or the PASSWORD ? Or even to get directly to the server via FTP ?
I think it's good as far as I know EVERYTHING I put on the server. I mean I was thinking of some spy/malware or even ransomware which could be in an other pack I could find on the web...
