some host preparations (by phantium/docker-ark)

  • On the docker host increase the ulimits for open files as recommended by ARK devs here:

    • Edit /etc/security/limits.conf and set these limits:
      soft nofile 100000
      hard nofile 100000

    • Edit /etc/pam.d/common-session and add the line:
      session required

      Finally execute: sysctl -p or reboot the machine.


  • install container, when it runs first time it will download the ark server files:
    docker run -d --restart=on-failure:5 --privileged=true -v /opt/ark/serverfiles:/opt/ark/serverfiles -p 27015:27015/udp -p 7778:7778/udp --name=ark profenter/ark
