There are already a number of mining pools out for Monero, are there instructions or software that people can use to set up their own mining pool?

The Monerodo OS from gingeropolous is a customized version of Ubuntu that includes Monero Core, Monero Pool Server, Nvidia mining software, various CPU mining software, and the MiniNodo Wallet server, already preinstalled and is easily configured with a simple text menu interface.

Step by step Monerodo OS instructions

Alternatively this CryptoNote pool mining software is free and open source

git clone https://github.com/zone117x/node-cryptonote-pool.git pool
cd pool
npm update

Configuration instructions can be found here


Edit 11/19/2017: another pool mining software has been crowdfunded. Source and instructions can be found here.

People with limited linux skills should try Monerodo, which is an ubuntu with a bunch of monero software pre-installed, including a pool software.

Otherwise, zone117x node-cryptonote-pool is a crowdfunded open source mining pool software and is the mostly used, including this popular fork

There is also this relatively recent software written in Golang.

    this one written in golang is only for solo mining? I couldn't find options like setting up automatic payments for miners or others useful services a pool offers
