[edit] A stronger mention of custom servers

I think it should be mentioned that most hhahahahAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA LOL servers use custom server software, such as Bukkit and Spigot

[edit] Protection

I think that this page should be edit-protected, as someone could plant misinformation to wreck your computer here. Mokiki 02:01, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

Only registered users can edit the page, I don't see a need for that, either. ExtremeHeat11 (talk) 00:14, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

[edit] .exe

What about the server .exe? -- 23:54, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

[edit] How to post a world file on a server

Seriously, I made a supercool world in the idea I could post it, but I can't figure out how.

you go to where your server.exe is, and in the "world" folder replace all the files and folders in there with copys from your world. - 21:45, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Cleanup

Most of the things mentioned in the article are still valid, for the most part, however, some parts are not. Specifically, the FAQs are old, and don't apply with the latest version of the game, and it seems that there's really no need for them to be there any more either. It's also a bad idea using manual Java PATHs on Windows, as it should work with just "java" and also works reguardless of whether they are using 32bit/64bit/different-installation-paths.

I'm also cleaning up the page in general, here. ExtremeHeat11 (talk) 01:47, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

[edit] Linux Tutorial Needs Editing for clarity

I managed to install a minecraft server on my ubuntu OS but only after I realized the errors I had made while reading the guide. Specifically the part about starting the server. Something should be said about the specifics of the terminal commands like whether or not to include nogui because I rather like a gui. There's also the matter of the wording the guide uses when it says substitute the words "minecraft server." On a side note I'd say that noob linux users like myself should be reminded that they should type the whole name of the .jar file ie. Minecraftserver.1.7.4.jar.

[edit] Mistake? in Java batch file example

Hi, just getting a batch file for my son and I noticed that 1048 and 2048 are given for the memory specs for Java:

     "java.exe -Xms1048M -Xmx2048M -jar minecraft_server.jar nogui"

Should be 1024? This is in the text box, the last line of the batch file, immediately before the Optional Steps heading. I've used this page many times and never noticed it before. anyway, thanks for making it. minedthestep

[edit] The page should definitely be edit protected

Some one could easily use the setting up a server page to hack and crash someone's computer. Cameronhclark (talk) 16:48, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Is it normal that it says that I don't have the proper privileges (mac terminal)?

Please respond, I'm getting confused.

[edit] Highly Discourage the use of Hamachi/VPN

Recently quite a few people have been coming into the Minecraft Support IRC with problems with connectivity that were only compounded by the use of Hamachi. The warning banner for the section should be harsher and highly discourage the use of VPN in favor of proper Port Forwarding. --Maxis45 (talk) 00:14, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Syntax typo in Breakdown of the code section

The memory arguments currently read "-Xmx1G -Xms2G". It should say "-Xms1G -Xmx2G". The 'x' and 's' are backwards. 01:06, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
