This Repository can be used to Provide your Server on two different Platforms Vagrant and Hetzner Cloud. For more information take al kook to the Documentation nolte.github.io/minecraft-infrastructure.

Local (Vagrant)

For the Local usage you need a runnable Vagrant Installation. The Local Vagrant part skip the Terraform installation tasks, like backup volumen handling etc. Only the Server Configuration Part provisioning/maintenance/master_playbook-configure-system.yml will executed, with the inventory provisioning/inventories/test.
