Installing the Chart
To install the chart with the release name
my-release, read the Minecraft EULA run:
$ helm install --name my-release \ --set minecraftServer.eula=true stable/minecraft
This command deploys a Minecraft dedicated server with sensible defaults.
Tip: List all releases using
Uninstalling the Chart
To uninstall/delete the
$ helm delete my-release
The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.
Specify each parameter using the
--set key=value[,key=value] argument to
helm install. For example,
$ helm install --name my-release \ --set minecraftServer.eula=true,minecraftServer.Difficulty=hard \ stable/minecraft
Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,
$ helm install --name my-release -f values.yaml stable/minecraft
Tip: You can use the default values.yaml
The itzg/minecraft-server image stores the saved games and mods under /data.
By default a PersistentVolumeClaim is created and mounted for saves but not mods. In order to disable this functionality
you can change the values.yaml to disable persistence under the sub-sections under
"An emptyDir volume is first created when a Pod is assigned to a Node, and exists as long as that Pod is running on that node. When a Pod is removed from a node for any reason, the data in the emptyDir is deleted forever."
