  • Paper server version 1.20 or higher.

  • WorldEdit plugin installed on your Minecraft server.

Redis Setup Options

Option B: Automated Docker Compose Setup (Preferred)

This option uses the Clipboard Connect setup command to automatically generate the docker-compose.yml file and configure Redis, simplifying the setup process.

B.1 Running Setup Command

In-game, use the /clipboardconnect setup command. Follow the on-screen instructions to automatically generate the Docker Compose file and start Redis.

Option A: Manual Docker Compose Setup

For those who prefer manual configuration, create and configure a Redis instance using Docker Compose.

A.1 Creating a Redis Docker Container

Create a docker-compose.yml file with the following content:

version: '3'
    image: redis:latest
    restart: always
      - "6379:6379"
      - redis-data:/data


A.2 Starting Redis

Run docker-compose up -d in the directory with your docker-compose.yml file.

Option C: Redis as a System Package

Alternatively, install Redis directly on your system using package management tools.

C.1 Installing Redis

On Ubuntu, for example, use:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install redis-server

C.2 Configuring Redis

Ensure Redis is configured to start on boot and adjust settings as needed.

Configuring Clipboard Connect

After setting up Redis, configure Clipboard Connect to use this Redis instance. Use the /clipboardconnect setup command in-game.

Verifying the Setup

Test saving and loading clipboards to ensure successful connectivity and functionality with Redis.


Your Clipboard Connect is now running with Redis, providing a robust solution for clipboard synchronization. Keep your Docker images, system packages, and Clipboard Connect plugin updated.
