What are we doing today
In this tutorial we will be setting up lavalink server! 🎉
Let’s get started.
Now, first thing first
Setting up the enviroment
To make a lavalink server, you will need a java 13 or greater, I recommend using Azul Zulu java 16 or 17.
You can download & setup java by going to here:
- Linux (Make sure to get
Once install you can verify it by doing
java -version, the output should look something like this
openjdk version "16.0.2" 2021-07-20 OpenJDK Runtime Environment Zulu16.32+15-CA (build 16.0.2+7) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM Zulu16.32+15-CA (build 16.0.2+7, mixed mode, sharing)
depending on your os, you may need to restart to for it to apply.
Congratulations 🥳 you’ve got Java installed!
Setting up lavalink.jar
To get started, you need to download the
application.yml It’s pretty simple!
Lavalink Jar download
Once you’ve downloaded the jar and application.yml file, you can simply edit the application.yml port and password to your preferences.
Now last step is to move both into a single folder, then open a terminal to that folder using
If your on linux go figure out yourself nerd.
Then run it by doing
java -jar Lavalink.jar or if you wanna limit it to only using X amount of ram you can do
java -XmxXG -jar Lavalink.jar I.e.
java -Xmx2G -jar Lavalink.jar
and you should get an output similar to this:
