Hosting a server?

Hosting a server?

Postby Julius » 21 Jun 2020, 10:42

Any quick guidelines on hosting an online server?

Are Docker images available to easily run a game server on an existing server?

Maybe try to add BN to https://linuxgsm.com/ ?

We're working on docs, see https://docs.blue-nebula.org. Writing docs takes a lot of time, many iterations, and only few people are willing to invest the required time into this.

I'll try to find time to publish a small guide there, and update this post then. Docker images are available for 1.6 (maintained by me), https://quay.io/repository/theassassin/redeclipse, they are compatible with our game (you just need to set the environment variable "SERVERMASTER=master.blue-nebula.org").

Never heard of linuxgsm. They're of course free to use our software and integrate it into theirs.

Well, I did worked a bit on making setup a bit easier. It's still untested stuff, since I did that today. The split config files I use as a template is here.
Yes, it's still http, there's a https too, but auto-signed, I need to spend some time on that. This will also probably be moved soon, I'll update this post in that case (or maybe merged? dunno yet).

maybe, just maybe we could make it easier for newbies or not-tech-savy ppl to configure their server by providing a GUI interface, just an idea
