Setting up your own dedicated Minecraft server is super easy with Ansible and a VPS like Linode!
Coding videos are typically unpleasant to produce for a variety of reasons but this one was quite fun. Linode is a joy to work with and Ansible is just awesome when everything is dialed in.
I intended on writing a Medium article for this video but decided against it because the instructions from this video are a bit too complex.
If you want to set up your users and groups by hand, check out this article – https://www.linode.com/docs/tools-reference/linux-users-and-groups/
And if you want to configure UFW from the CLI, check this one out – https://www.linode.com/docs/security/firewalls/configure-firewall-with-ufw/
I have a habit of under estimating my own skills and assuming everyone can just dive into Docker, Ansible, and whatever else. It’s technical stuff and folks who aren’t familiar with it can get overwhelmed fast!
