Creating a Minecraft SMP Bukkit Server

Get a VPS

In the long run you should use a VPS instead of hosting on your own computer. This way you can turn of your computer at home and still be able host the server 24/7.

  • The server should have at least one gigabyte ram.
  • The server should not use OpenVZ for virtualization. It would work but you might face memory allocation issues. You should go for Xen virtualization.

In the continuation I will assume the VPS is using Ubuntu as OS.

Install Java

That will install java for you.

Get the minecraft server

Start it

You should get to know the terminal command screen if you does not already.

Now you can start the server in a screen and detach from it to keep the server running.
