Creating a Minecraft server is easy. To do this, you just need to log into your VPS server and install Java 1.6.0 Open JDK
ssh email@example.com [root@vultr ~]# yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk <some output here> Is this ok [y/N]: y
After that, you need to make the user run your Minecraft server. This is for security reasons only. We do not recommend running the Minecraft server as root.
adduser mcserver passwd mcserver #set a secure password. yum install screen #this allows you to run screen while su'd from root for the next step chown mcserver `tty`
Next, you need to change users and install the Minecraft server. Change your wget URL as shown below.
su - mcserver mkdir minecraft cd minecraft wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/Minecraft.Download/versions/1.11/minecraft_server.1.11.jar chmod +x minecraft_server.jar screen echo "eula=true" > eula.txt #start your Minecraft Server java -Xmx768M -Xms768M -jar minecraft_server.jar nogui
Done! Your Minecraft Server Launched Successfully!
