In , the Terraria developers announced support for Linux , which means that players can host their own standalone Terraria servers. This guide outlines the steps required to run a Terraria server for yourself and others to play on. These steps are compatible with any Linux distribution that uses systemd. For this reason, we recommend using our 4GB plan or higher when following this guide. This guide will use sudo wherever possible. Complete the sections of our Securing Your Server guide to create a standard user account, harden SSH access and remove unnecessary network services. Do not follow the Configuring a Firewall section in the Securing Your Server Guide—we will configure the firewall for a Terraria server in the next section.

You can install haveged on nonvirtual servers as well, it should not hurt. Jailkit is needed only if you want to chroot SSH users. It can be installed as follows important: Jailkit must be installed before ISPConfig - it cannot be installed afterwards! If you like to try out the pre-release of an upcoming 3. This will start the ISPConfig 3 installer. The installer will configure all services like Postfix, Dovecot, etc. A manual setup as required for ISPConfig 2 perfect setup guides is not necessary.
