To get started, install the needed software:

Code: Select all
- yum upgrade (always good to update before you start)
- yum install epel-release
- yum install minetest minetest-server
- systemctl start minetest@default


Server should run after this, and be ready for connections.

To add custom games, unpack and copy them to:

Code: Select all
/var/lib/minetest/.minetest/games/


To add custom mods, unpack or git clone them, and copy them to:

Code: Select all
/var/lib/minetest/.minetest/mods/


You may need to modify
Code: Select all
/var/lib/minetest/default/world.mt
to enable mods and switch the game type.

The server conf is at

Code: Select all
/etc/minetest/default.conf


After making modifications to it, you need to restart the server.

Make sure to not modify files when the server is running. Shut down the server before making modifications, and only start the server again once you are done modifying files.
