Full Description

Bungeecord server on Ubuntu 14.04 with openjava 1.8

This docker image builds and runs the bungeecord.

Starting the container

To run the lastest stable version of this docker image run

docker run -ti -p 25577:25577 -e EULA=true rehf27/bungeecord

the parameter

-e EULA=true

The is because Mojang now requires the end user to access their EULA, located at, the be able to start the server.

the parameter

-p 25577:25577

tell on which external port the internal 25577 should be connected, in this case the same, if
you only type -p 25577 it will connect to a random port on the machine

Giving the container a name

To make it easier to handle you container you can give it a name instead of the long
number thats normaly give to it, add a

--name bungeecord

to the run command to give it the name minecraft, then you can start it easier with

docker start bungeecord
docker stop bungeecord

First time run

This will take a couple of minuters depending on computer and network speed. It will pull down
the latest version of Bungeecord.

If the compilation was successful the server will start in interactive mode. Log in from a minecraft
client to controll that all works. The type


to drop back to a root shell in the bungeecord directory. Edit and add files to customize your
bungeecord server.

When you are finished do a


to exit and stop the container

You can now start it in two different modes, interactive and non-interactive mode.

Interactive mode

The interactive mode echos server output to the console and you can issue command by type
them in the console. The server stops if you exits the console.

Non-Interactive mode

The Non-Interactive mode (daemon mode) starts the server without any output. If you need
to connect and do something with the server you have to use the docker exec command.

Having the minecraft files on the host machine

If you delete the container all your filer in minecraft will be gone. To save them where it's
easier to edit and do a backup of the files you can attach a directory from the host machine
(where you run the docker command) and attach it to the local file system in the container.
The syntax for it is

-v /host/path/to/dir:/container/path/to/dir

To attach the minecraft directory in the container to directory /home/nimmis/mc-srv you add

-v /home/nimmis/mc-srv:/bungeecord

Using Docker Compose for Bungeecord + Spigot Minecraft server containers

For background on what the docker-compose configuration is doing, please read Rob's Ramblings.

Docker, docker-compose and docker-machine

For information on using docker, docker-machine or docker-compose...

In the directory containing the docker-compose.yml file, run from the terminal...

docker-compose up

This command will download the images, create the data and server containers, and run them.

Additional steps

Update each Minecraft server's to disable online-mode, which will force players through the Bungeecord server for access.

  • To connect to the shell of a data container
docker run --rm -t -i --volumes-from $CONTAINER_NAME centos /bin/bash
  1. World 0
docker run --rm -t -i \
--volumes-from dockerbungeecord_world0data_1 \
centos \
sed -i 's/online-mode=true/online-mode=false/' \ /minecraft/
  1. World 1
docker run --rm -t -i \
--volumes-from dockerbungeecord_world1data_1 \
centos \
sed -i 's/online-mode=true/online-mode=false/' /minecraft/
  1. World 2
    docker run --rm -t -i \
    --volumes-from dockerbungeecord_world2data_1 \
    centos \
    sed -i 's/online-mode=true/online-mode=false/' /minecraft/

For one Minecraft server

  1. Connect to the data container, and run a search and replace command.
    docker run --rm -t -i \
    --volumes-from dockerbungeecord_bungeecorddata_1 \
    centos /bin/bash \
    sed -i 's/localhost:25565/world0server:25565/' /bungeecord/config.yml

For multiple Minecraft servers

  1. Connect to the data container's bash shell

    docker run --rm -t -i \
    --volumes-from dockerbungeecord_bungeecorddata_1 \
    centos \
  2. Now in the data container's shell, run

    cd bungeecord
    vi config.yml
  3. Replace the existing servers section with something like this...

     motd: '&1Lobby Server'
     address: world0server:25565
     restricted: false
     motd: '&1A New World'
     address: world1server:25565
     restricted: false
     motd: '&1Another World'
     address: world2server:25565
     restricted: false
