Where is my Minecraft folder (Java Edition, deployed using the marketplace option)?

Posted September 19, 2020 622 views

I deployed a droplet using the Minecraft: Java Edition Server 1.0 on Ubuntu 18.04 option from the marketplace. The server works (can log in from the game) but I cannot find its folder when connecting to the server either from the console / FileZilla. In addition, if you are familiar with this configuration, a word on how to access the minecraft server console would be appreciated (either it doesn’t have a documentation or I couldn’t find it).

Hi @uris125,

The working directory of the minecraft server created from DigitalOcean marketplace can be found in /opt/minecraft.

In the said folder you can find the configuration of the server as well as anything else you might need.


Might be a bit late to respond, but you can access the console by:

su mincraft 

To switch to the “minecraft” user


enter screen (lets you have multiple consoles running at the same time)

screen -R

reattaches to the running screen, in this case the console.
This page helped me a bit (has the instructions for the above stuff) though I’m still looking for more info:

Hope this helps!
