Updated: 3/03/2016 to include Minecraft version 1.9
In this tutorial, I will show you how to set up a Minecraft 1.9 Server on Linux (Ubuntu 14.04). Personally I installed Minecraft on a EC2 server on Amazon with only 1GB of ram and it runs just fine.
Here are some requirements before we get started:
- A machine running Ubuntu Server 14.04
- A machine with 1GB of RAM, but I would recommend 2GB or more
* Note – the rest of the tutorial assumes you have already installed Ubuntu Server 14.04, and you are able to login with a user that has root privileges.
