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.
