Question

Marketplace Minecraft Server is missing documentation.

I’ve set up the Shark Labs Minecraft server via DO’s marketplace. When I try to login via the console it requires a username. I have no idea what this is, and would have expected a login to the ubuntu server instead.

Hi there @transat,

During the Droplet creation, you are asked on whether you would like to authenticate with an SSH key or a password.

The username for all new Droplets is root.

For more information on how to create a new Droplet you can take a look at the official documentation here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/droplets/how-to/create/

Then once the Droplet is up and running, rather than using the web console, I would recommend using SSH to access it, you can follow the steps on how to do that here:

Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
