Self-Hosting a Minecraft server #
This is going to be quick rundown on running Minecraft as a docker container.
- A computer with
The minecraft docker image we are using is itzj/minecraft-server
The compose file #
Paste the following into a
version: "3" services: minecraft-server: image: itzg/minecraft-server container_name: my-mc-server ports: - 25565:25565 environment: EULA: "TRUE" tty: true stdin_open: true restart: unless-stopped volumes: - ./minecraft_data:/data
After you have that file - run
docker-compose up -d to run the services
in this compose file.
This is just a minimal compose file to get started… there are many many more options that can be used to configure various runtime settings for the minecraft server.
The documentation of the project is very good, so you are sure to find what you are looking for there.
