Keep Minecraft Server Up To Date

Minecraft is a sandbox construction game, inspired by Infiniminer, Dwarf Fortress and Dungeon Keeper, created by Markus Persson, the founder of Mojang AB. The game involves players placing and breaking various types of blocks in a three-dimensional environment. The player takes on an avatar that can break and place blocks, forming fantastic structures, creations, and artwork, on multiplayer servers and singleplayer worlds across multiple game modes.

How to Keep Mincraft Server updated to the latest version...

In your "PublicShare/minecraft_server" folder there is a file "version.txt"

Simply edit this file to show the version you want to install.
Code: Select all
1.10


then the next time Minecraft server is restarted in App Central this should pull-down and run the specified version.
If you want to run any of the previous versions, simply edit this file to show the old version
e.g.
Code: Select all
1.8.1

The restart the server again.

Minecraft appear to have changed their download URL and format (from v 1.13.1)

They now have a random (hashed) filename which makes updating a lot more difficult.

You can just download the latest server version (*.jar) from https://minecraft.net/en-us/download/server to shares/Public/minecraft_server/minecraft_server.<ver>.jar

Don't forget to update the shares/Public/minecraft_server/version.txt to show the matching <ver>...
Restart Minecraft server via App Central and this should then run.

Hey clinton.hall, I've added minecraft_server.1.17.1.jar and changed the text within version.txt to 1.17.1

I turn the minecraft app off and back on again, I get the following error when I try to connect:

io.netty.channel.AbstractChannel$AnnotatedConnectExeption: Connection refused: no further information: LOCKERSTOR/192.168.1.11:25565

I can successfully connect when I switch to 1.8.1 or 1.16.5, but I get that error message with 1.17.1.

Please advise on how to resolve this.

Thanks & God Bless!

A bit of guess from me, but I believe that minecraft now requires version 16 of java and that might be what you need. I do not know how to install that though, can not find it in the app central.

I think the main issue is that Minecraft now requires Java version 16 and the Java version for Asustor NAS is 1.8... Not sure this can be fixed by simply updating the server app...

And regarding that I asked Asustor about update plans:

-"The current Java Version is 1.17, any plans on updating from 1.8 for Asustor AS-608T app?"


"-Thanks for contacting us.
For the issue mentioned, currently we don't have a plan to update the java version on AS60 series NAS models.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have further questions."

You can pack up the version of Java you need and manually install it on your NAS. That's what I have done.

Hi How did you package and install the Java update yourself? Can you provide me with the package or explain how you did it?

Anyone having any luck?

It seems the installation to the newer version of Java was successful as the NAS reports version 18 running. Thank you for those instructions.

I cannot however get 1.18.2 or even the "default" 1.8.1 running on the thing. Using a local connection I just get the same connection refused: no further information as others reported.
