    • Stop Minetest service sudo systemctl stop minetest

Developers info

Only if you want to use a testing branch for coding, instead of merging directly into master.
Please do your pull request to the testing branch.

To try the testing branch, please proceed like that.

sudo yunohost app install https://github.com/YunoHost-Apps/minetest_ynh/tree/testing --debug
sudo yunohost app upgrade minetest -u https://github.com/YunoHost-Apps/minetest_ynh/tree/testing --debug

So what is the best/easiest way to admin this? I can now login as users (without password although I said the server should only be available to LDAP registered users…)

Will the minetest wiki be enough to learn about this? Or are there some YNH specifics to be aware off?
