ARK: Survival Evolved - Docker

Docker build for managing an ARK: Survival Evolved server.

This image uses Ark Server Tools to manage an ark server.

If you use an old volume, get the new arkmanager.cfg in the template directory.
Don't forget to use docker pull turzam/ark to get the latest version of the image

Features

  • Easy install (no steamcmd / lib32... to install)
  • Use Ark Server Tools : update/install/start/backup/rcon/mods
  • Easy crontab configuration
  • Easy access to ark config file
  • Mods handling (via Ark Server Tools)
  • Docker stop is a clean stop

Usage

Fast & Easy server setup :
docker run -d -p 7778:7778 -p 7778:7778/udp -p 27015:27015 -p 27015:27015/udp -e SESSIONNAME=myserver -e ADMINPASSWORD="mypasswordadmin" --name ark turzam/ark

You can map the ark volume to access config files :
docker run -d -p 7778:7778 -p 7778:7778/udp -p 27015:27015 -p 27015:27015/udp -e SESSIONNAME=myserver -v /my/path/to/ark:/ark --name ark turzam/ark
Then you can edit /my/path/to/ark/arkmanager.cfg (the values override GameUserSetting.ini) and /my/path/to/ark/[GameUserSetting.ini/Game.ini]

You can manager your server with rcon if you map the rcon port (you can rebind the rcon port with docker):
docker run -d -p 7778:7778 -p 7778:7778/udp -p 27015:27015 -p 27015:27015/udp -p 32330:32330 -e SESSIONNAME=myserver --name ark turzam/ark

You can change server and steam port to allow multiple servers on same host:
(You can't just rebind the port with docker. It won't work, you need to change STEAMPORT & SERVERPORT variable)
docker run -d -p 7779:7779 -p 7779:7779/udp -p 27016:27016 -p 27016:27016/udp -p 32331:32330 -e SESSIONNAME=myserver2 -e SERVERPORT=27016 -e STEAMPORT=7779 --name ark2 turzam/ark

You can check your server with :
docker exec ark arkmanager status

You can manually update your mods:
docker exec ark arkmanager update --update-mods

You can manually update your server:
docker exec ark arkmanager update --force

You can force save your server :
docker exec ark arkmanager saveworld

You can backup your server :
docker exec ark arkmanager backup

You can upgrade Ark Server Tools :
docker exec ark arkmanager upgrade-tools

You can use rcon command via docker :
docker exec ark arkmanager rconcmd ListPlayers
Full list of available command here

You can check all available command for arkmanager here

You can easily configure automatic update and backup.
If you edit the file /my/path/to/ark/crontab you can add your crontab job.
For example :
# Update the server every hours
0 * * * * arkmanager update --warn --update-mods >> /ark/log/crontab.log 2>&1
# Backup the server each day at 00:00
0 0 * * * arkmanager backup >> /ark/log/crontab.log 2>&1
You can check this website for more information on cron.

To add mods, you only need to change the variable ark_GameModIds in arkmanager.cfg with a list of your modIds (like this ark_GameModIds="987654321,1234568"). If UPDATEONSTART is enable, just restart your docker or use docker exec ark arkmanager update --update-mods.
