Minecraft is the ever so popular game. This charm deploys a stand alone minecraft server for you.
You have to download the server jar first, which you attach as a resource.
The server needs about 2GB ram and 2 cpus to be happy (might need more).
Start by downloading the official server jar.
Deploy with the server jar as a juju resource:
juju deploy cs:~erik-lonroth/minecraft-server --constraints "mem=2G cores=2" --resource server-jar=minecraft_server.1.14.jar juju expose minecraft-server
You can attach a server-jar after deploy also with juju attach-resource if you like to upgrade later for example.
juju attach-resource minecraft-server server-jar=minecraft_server.1.14.jar
The server runs default on port 25565 in survival mode.
If you enable the query-port with juju config, you can query the server with mcstatus.
All configuration changes triggers a server restart.
Example, set gamemode and server-port like this:
juju config minecraft-server gamemode='creative' server-port=12345
Operating the server
The charm sets up a 'screen' session named 'minecraft' as the user minecraft. You can attach to this at any time to operate the server.
juju ssh minecraft-server/0 sudo -u minecraft screen -R minecraft # ctrl-a d (Gets you out)
Upgrading the server
Simply attach a new server-jar with juju which will restart the server with the new version.
juju attach-resource server-jar="server.jar"
