Full Description

7 Days to Die server that runs inside a Docker container

NOTE: This image will always install/update to the latest steamcmd and 7 Days to Die server, all you have to do to update your server is to redeploy the container.

Also note that the entire /steamcmd/7dtd can be mounted on the host system.

How to run the server

  1. Set the SEVEN_DAYS_TO_DIE_SERVER_STARTUP_ARGUMENTS environment variable to match your preferred server arguments (defaults are set to "-configfile=server_data/serverconfig.xml -logfile /dev/stdout -quit -batchmode -nographics -dedicated", note how we're logging to stdout)
  2. Optionally mount /steamcmd/7dtd somewhere on the host or inside another container to keep your data safe
  3. Run the container and enjoy!

You can control the startup mode by using SEVEN_DAYS_TO_DIE_START_MODE. This determines if the server should update and then start (mode 0), only update (mode 1) or only start (mode 2)) The default value is "0".

Note that you should also enable telnet and optionally modify the SEVEN_DAYS_TO_DIE_TELNET_PORT and SEVEN_DAYS_TO_DIE_TELNET_PASSWORD environment variables accordingly, so the container can properly send the shutdown command to the server when the proper signal has been received (it uses telnet for this).

One additional feature you can enable is fully automatic updates, meaning that once a server update hits Steam, it'll restart the server and trigger the automatic update. You can enable this by setting SEVEN_DAYS_TO_DIE_UPDATE_CHECKING to "1".
