How to Install Minecraft

The purpose of this article is to explain how you would install Minecraft using our server or any linux server.

First you will need to login to your server using SSH

ssh root@ip.ip.ip.ip
Once you are logged in you need to download the files from https://minecraft.net/download

At this time we see the latest file is minecraft_server.1.8.1.jar

wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/Minecraft.Download/versions/1.8.1/minecraft_server.1.8.1.jar

Once it is completed downloading lets change the file permissions.

chmod 755 minecraft_server.1.8.1.jar

Lastly we can start the server with the following command (might have to install java using yum)..

java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar minecraft_server.1.8.1.jar

Thats all!

Now you can use your computer to connect using the Minecraft desktop version.

"This is by far the best service I have ever seen from a server hosting provider. Their virtual servers are no different than the dedicated server I moved from and they managed to import my dedicated server.. like magic! Thanks guys for the excellent service"

"I got my first VMware server from vps-hosting.ca and I have to say I was very impressed. I realize I was wasting money on my dedicated server as these virtuals seem to perform extremely well. Also I really didn't expect to have the server up and running in 3 minutes which was great"
