So last night I began getting a headless server running. I made a VM in Hyper-V with CentOS minimal installed in it. I installed the headless server. I setup the server settings.json file and created a factorio.service in /etc/systemd/system/. I (painfully) was able to get glibc installed but it was the wrong version so I had to build version 2.18 which took forever. I then took my save file from my Windows machine which has been running the game and renamed it to save.zip and uploaded it to Mediafire so I could wget it from CentOS. I ran wget to download the save file into the saves folder and tried to start the server but it says thats its a bad zip file. I tried renaming it to the name it was originally (Wichids Game.zip) but that didnt work either. I am able to load that save file in Factorio on my Windows machine and play on it but it wont load on the headless server running CentOS. Am I doing something wrong or is this something that is just not possible?
So I finally got it working. It seems there is some sort of problem using .zips in Linux that were created in Windows. What I had to do was unzip the file to a shared folder, use mget in smbclient to copy over the whole directory, and then use zip to turn the directory into a .zip file again.
I am reasonably convinced one does not simply wget files from Mediafire. When I click your link, it doesn't start to download the file, it shows me mediafire web page with Download button on it, and I think wget grabbed that webpage.
