I am interested in any kind of open-world server that I can host and allow others to join. It was just a matter of time before I got into Minecraft. This article details the steps I took to do the following:
- Create a new EC2 instance and install the Minecraft Bedrock server
- Allow remote access and configure logging through CloudWatch
- Create an alert that generates SMS messages when users connect
- Connect to the instance from the PS4 console
Come play on
minecraft.disloops.com if you just want to see the finished product. It's a vanilla Bedrock server on survival mode.
