    This article will teach you how to setup a Minecraft Pocket Edition server on CentOS 6. Setting up a Minecraft PE server is quite simple.

    First, install the required libraries.

    yum -y install m4 automake autoconf make gcc libtool

    Once these libraries have finished installing, you must install the server script. We will be using PocketMine.

    wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/pocketmine/linux/installer.sh

    Chmod the server script to make it executable.

    chmod +x ./installer.sh

    Begin the install process. This may take up to 5 minutes to install.


    Next, start the server.


    Voila. We just need to make sure that port 19132 is open so that people can join. To open it in CentOS 6, run the following commands.

    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 19132 -j ACCEPT
    service iptables save
    service iptables restart

    If you are running CentOS 7, then you must use firewalld to open it. To do so, perform the following commands:

    firewall-cmd --zone=dmz --add-port=19132/tcp --permanent
    firewall-cmd --reload

    Your server is ready to go! Happy building!
