MTSM - Minetest Server Manager

MTSM is a simple server manager with a tiny bash event manager. It requires no setup (except setting properties in the config.php script) and the start of MTSM's event manager. MTSM is released under the CC-BY-SA v3.0 unported.

MTSM was written by Chris Dorman, 2021


  • PHP5+
  • Minetest, Multicraft, Etc, installed and configured for your system.
  • Super user privleges for the event manager unless executed as the web server user.


  • Modify config.php to your needs
  • Visit page to generate mtm_db for flat file user database
  • Execute MTSM backend as SU: sudo ./start-mtsm start
  • Copy a fresh minetest source tree (compiled with binaries) into servers/ in a .tgz archive


minetest-current.tgz archive tree
  • servers/minetest-current.tgz

    • bin/
      • minetestserver
    • games/
      • devtest
      • minetest_game
      • ...

    and so on!

multicraft.tgz archive tree
  • servers/multicraft.tgz

    • bin/
      • multicraftserver
    • games/
      • devtest
      • minetest_game
      • ...

    and so on!

  • These archives are uncompressed by the event manager when each user creates a server. This step is crucial for an operating MTSM installation.

Mods / Gamepacks

  • Mods are sharable to all users, and should be copied to mods/ within the MTSM tree.
  • Minetest games should be installed, as a directory, in games/ within the MTSM tree.
