Docker Minecraft PaperMC Server 1.17
Docker Minecraft PaperMC server 1.17.x, 1.16.x, 1.15.2, 1.14.4 (legacy) or 1.13.2 (legacy)
docker pull marctv/minecraft-papermc-server
docker run \ --rm \ --name mcserver \ -e MEMORYSIZE='1G' \ -v /homes/joe/mcserver:/data:rw \ -p 25565:25565 \ -i marctv/minecraft-papermc-server:latest
docker attach mcserver
How do I update the container?
- Re-download the image from the docker
- Stop the container
- Clear the container
- Start the container
You can use volumes to store data persistantly, for example:
docker run --rm \ -p 25565:25565 \ -v <full path to folder where you want to store the server files>:/data:rw \ marctv/minecraft-papermc-server:latest
Run as non-root user
You can get the desired UID/GID (xxx) with the ID command (id username) then add the following to your docker run command:
-e PUID=xxx -e PGID=xxx
If you prefer to use
docker-compose, use the following commands:
Start the server:
Stop the server:
Issue server commands after attaching to the container:
docker attach mcserver # then you can type things like "list" list # which will show the current players online or help # to see all the commands available
How to use the Makefile with Docker Compose
Makefile is provided to easily start, stop, and attach to the container.
make start # equivalent to `docker-compose up -d --build` make stop # equivalent to `docker-compose stop --rmi all --remove-orphans` make attach # equivalent to `docker attach mcserver` make help # prints a help message
MEMORYSIZE = 1G
Not more than 70% of your RAM for your Container! This is important! This is the RAM your Minecraft Server will use within the container WITHOUT the operating system.
TZ = Europe/Berlin
Sets the timezone for the container. A list of valid values can be found on wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones
