When im in the control panel for the minecraft server ,I try clicking on the MCMYADMIN icon, but it takes me to a dead site...am I supposed to have anything active on that link or only active with a specific mod or plugin?
Could it be that you have installed Craftbukkit from Game Mods?
If so, you have removed McMyAdmin from the command line and it will not start.
You can reinstall McMyAdmin, by installing McMyAdmin Part1 from Game Mods.
Once done, you can install Bukkit from within McMyAdmin - About > Updates > Update/install Bukkit
