  • Just a chill little scene from the server I set up last night | 2021-05-06
    It's been a couple year since I set up a server, and my fiancé and I figured we wanted a place to hang out with some friends, and I have a VPS not going much, so I figured I'd get us going, thinking I'd spend the whole evening just installing packages and configuring Java and all that jazz and well... I found the Docker Minecraft server project and wow that's easy to get going! I already have Docker on the VPS since it's running my blog, and so getting a server running was literally a single command! Quickly whip up a config file, restart the server, and there it is! Spigot installed, plugins installed, just need to configure one or two settings, and we can get going!

  • Docker MC Server Question | 2021-05-02 | 2021-05-02
    If you read the relevant section, you would note that you can indeed add OPs after initializing the server, but using the environment variable will only add OPs, not remove them. Unless you also set `OVERRIDE_OPS='true'`, which will completely recreate the `ops.json` file every time. | 2021-05-02
    I've gone through and followed this tutorial: and made a MC Server using this docker image:
  • Best place to host a modpack, and how to run a modded mc server yourself
    After renting a server from them, you have to ssh into it (which creates a secure connection for you to run commands onto the server), install docker (which installs its own pre-requisites on its own), and look at the Readme on this. Then, it's as easy as connecting onto your server, with the port provided, and you're done.
