Minecraft instance: SEVERE: 'log-strip-color' is not a recognized option

I'm trying to run an older version of Minecraft from the beta days. Every time I try to start the server, it fails and I get the following in the logs:

Jul 12, 2017 10:04:08 PM org.bukkit.craftbukkit.Main main
SEVERE: 'log-strip-color' is not a recognized option
Option Description
------ ----------- 

Them it just lists the options for starting the server. I believe this version did not support the log-strip-color option, but I cannot find a way to disable it. I looked over some of the files and can't find the startup arguments.

Is there some way I can get around this?

Which server type setting are you using? You might need to pick the 'legacy' option.

I switched to the legacy setting and the server started and users can join. However, the manager is now stuck on the 'starting server' notification and I can't get it to go away or issue any server commands. The server is up and running. Here is the MC log from initialization to complete startup:

The AMP log has nothing extra.

Any idea on how to get AMP to recognize the server has started?
