A nice and easy way to get a Terraria server up and running using docker and TShock. For
help on getting started with docker see the official getting started guide.
For more information on Terraria and check out it's website.
You can simply take the image from the official repository with:
docker.io pull izissise/terraria
Running this will build you a docker image with the latest version of both
docker-terraria and TShock itself.
git clone https://github.com/izissise/docker-terraria cd docker-terraria docker.io build -t izissise/terraria .
Running the first time will set your port to a static port of your choice so
that you can easily map a proxy to. If this is the only thing running on your
system you can map the port to 7777 and no proxy is needed. i.e.
docker.io run -i -p 7777:7777 --name="terraria" izissise/terraria
From now on when you start/stop docker-terraria you should use the container id
with the following commands. To get your container id, after you initial run
sudo docker.io ps and it will show up on the left side followed by the
image name which is
docker.io start <container_id> docker.io stop <container_id>
Notes on the run command
izissise/terrariais simply what I called my docker build of this image
-d=trueallows this to run cleanly as a daemon, remove for debugging
-pis the port it connects to,
