Look here legit modern, when we try to open the “start.command” terminal it
says exactly this: The file “start.command” could not be executed because
you do not have appropriate access privileges. now help us!!!!

ErosionSwordz says:

If you get [Process complete] follow these steps:

1. Rename the jar to just minecraft_server.jar (No 1.8)
2. Open the jar and let the few files load
3. Open the EULA and chance the EULA=FALSE to EULA TRUE
4. Now open the start.command
