How To Setup A Free Minecraft Server 1.19 Update
Setting up a Java-based Minecraft server can be tricky for those who aren't savvy with file movement and editing. It is actually quite simple, even though it might seem daunting at first.
Mojang also provides a guide on the game's official website to help players through the process. Players will be able to create a base server with just one folder and a few other files. They can then tweak it to their liking or start playing in version 1.19.
This method is also applicable to older versions of Mojang's game. Mojang provides many versions for the game's server file.
To host your own Minecraft server, you can follow these steps:
1. Head to the game's official site, where the server Java file is hosted. 1.19 players will want the server.1.19.0.jar to access the current server build. 2. Players should create a folder in which to place the downloaded.jar file. You can name it anything you like, but "Minecraft Server", will work well. Once the folder is set up, players should place the downloaded.jar file inside. 3. Next, players will need to open the command line and enter cd followed closely by the directory in which the.jar file is stored. For example, C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\Minecraft Server or whatever directory the folder resides in. You can inspect this directory by opening the server directory and looking at the top.
4. Next, players will want to type Java -jar server.1.19.0.jar and press enter. Players will get an error but it is normal as it will generate the necessary EULA file.
5. Back in the server folder, players should open the EULA.txt file with their preferred text editor such as Notepad.
6. Minecraft Bedwars Servers After you have made your changes, save the changes and close the text editor.
7. A server.properties folder should also be created. This file needs to be opened using a standard text editor. Some players may need the option to "Open With" to manually choose their text editor to open the file.
8. Players should pay attention the line reading "query.port", which will list the ports that players must forward on their routers where applicable. This line may not be necessary depending on the hardware setup of a player. Traditionally, players must forward the default port 25565 to their router's settings. However, the port may change in certain circumstances.
9. The server's operation will be determined by the rest of the file's properties. For example, the "gamemode" setting can be set as Survival, Creative, Adventure or another option to change the default game mode. Players can also set things like difficulty, PvP access, maximum players and whether the Nether is accessible.
10. Once the server.properties have been modified, players can save their changes. Once the server.properties has been modified, players can save the changes. If everything went well, the.jar file should start running the server and players should be capable of connecting to it.
11. If players did not set a specific IP address in their server properties file, the server IP will be tied to their machine's IP address. If a player's computer address is 192.168.0.5 then the server IP will be the same. Minecraft's multiplayer menu allows players access to the server by entering their IP followed by the forward port. For example, an address for players to connect to might be 192.168.0.5:25565. To connect to their server directly from the multiplayer menu, the player hosting the server can enter localhost.
Once these steps have been completed, Minecraft players should be able and the server administrator should be able for them to connect to the server. If future changes need to be made, the admin can reopen the server.properties file in their text editor and tweak any of the listed settings as needed.
