Updating Linux Minecraft server

Tue Apr 14, 2020 9:00 am

I set up a Linux Minecraft server, only to discover I set it up as a 1.41 server. I need to update it so my son's friends can play together. I tried to do it with a couple of step by step instructions for CLI, but all they did was start another instance of 1.41. Any tips on doing this nice and easy?

I don't know anything specific about minecraft but if you post the instructions you were following I might be able to suggest something.

So you followed nebulous instructions that you won't link us to...how are we supposed to help figure out where it went wrong not knowing what you did?

Doesn't look like you actually read what is going on. What went wrong: an old version of Minecraft is installed. Solution sought: how to do a CLI update of a minecraft server on Ubuntu.

For whatever it is worth to you, here is the link to what I used:

Doesn't look like you actually care enough to get help then. No OS info until this last post, no linking to what you did until this last post, no apparent care to fix it without implying that people aren't trying to help.

I'll be helpful anyway - install a newer version of Minecraft and run it.

See how easy that is?

So just to be clear.

The section "Downloading Minecraft Server" gives a wget command specifically for downloading V1.14.1. You need to check the minecraft download page for the url of the latest version (https://launcher.mojang.com/v1/objects/ ... server.jar at the moment) and use that in your wget command instead like this:

wget https://launcher.mojang.com/v1/objects/bb2b6b1aefcd70dfd1892149ac3a215f6c636b07/server.jar -P ~/server


I think you need to have su'ed to the minecraft user to make sure the file has the right permissions before downloading, I haven't actually read all those instructions.

After you've downloaded the new version I think all you need to do is return to your admin user restart your systemd job
sudo systemctl restart minecraft


There might be some kind of minecraft specific stuff you need to do like changes to the config files but probably not, you can check the release notes to be sure if you really want to.

I wasn't trying to be snarky when I asked for the instructions you followed but without them it's pretty hard to help, there are probably a hundred was to install minecraft on linux.
