In this article, you will learn how to install Multicraft on ubuntu 20.04.

Multicraft is a powerful admin tool for running many Minecraft servers from the same computer. The purpose of this article is to provide instructions for installing Multicraft on an Ubuntu 20.04 server. So start with update.

# apt-get update

1. Install the Dependencies

Install Apache2 and SQLite.

# apt-get install apache2 sqlite -y

Install PHP and the required PHP extensions.

# apt-get install php7.4 php7.4-sqlite php7.4-gd -y

Install Java.

# apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk -y

Edit the Apache configuration file /etc/apache2/apache2.conf in your text editor.

# vi /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Apache's Directory /var/www/> step needs the AllowOverride option to be set to all.


Save and exit the file, by using escape :wq

Reload the Apache configuration.

# service apache2 reload

2. Install Multicraft

Download the Multicraft installer.

# wget -O multicraft.tar.gz

Extract the installer.

# tar -xzf multicraft.tar.gz

Navigate to the extracted directory.

# cd multicraft/

Run the installation script.

# ./

During installation, the script will prompt you to answer a series of questions to customise the process. Press ENTER to accept the system's suggested responses if you're at a loss for what to type. If prompted to enable the in-built FTP server, you should say no.

3. Configure the Control Panel

In a web browser, go to the server's IP address and then the subdirectory /multicraft/install.php.


Press Start Installation.

If you've completed the steps above without an error, the page shows your server meets the requirements. Click Continue.
