Hello, I am going to show you how to set up your own server in Minecraft.

Step 1: First get the software.

First, you need to get the software for the server from http://www.minecraft.net/download/ .
<p>This only works before version 1.7.8. After that, the file is held i JSON format.<br>To add someone as an op, you go to the server console, and give the command 'op playername' replacing 'playername' with their minecraft player name. This will update the ops.json file appropriately</p>
<p>THANK YOU!!!</p>

<p>Cool whats Your ip</p>

<p>I cant find the op file. any help?</p>
<p>I CLICKED THE LINK AND IT SAID &quot;NOT FOUND The file public download does not exist&quot;</p>

<p>10 Years Old ?? Im 10 Years Old But I have minecraft and i have a server </p>
If I do this, can I play the full Minecraft, where I can build and create things, or am I still limited to the unpaid version where I can only walk around and destroy blocks?
this is for the full paid version. Not the free one.
and you need the full version to connect to the server

What type of computer? Windows or Mac?
How do i get more RAM. It won't work. :(
Just buy a ram card and insert it directly into your computer (I think it ges into he motherboard)
I took your advice but the problom is minecraft can't open the F***in server. it shows this error message every time: <br> <br>Internal client error: java.net.SocketExeption: Permission denied: connect <br> <br>can anyone help???
Did you properly forward the port?
Finally someone appreciates mine-craft! I love the game!
you don't even know how many people play minecraft.
Is it a bad idea to set up a server on the same computer I use to play? It seems that could be rather CPU intensive and I don't want to fry anything.
i don't know about it being bad for the cpu, but it definatley will slow down the internet.
My server: <br>Under construction !!!
You do realize you could put everything in a .zip file, and forwarding your port just depends on your router settings.
