Getting started[edit]

To get started, you want to first install the latest server jar or exe depending on your operating system from You must use the .jar version if you are on Mac OS X or Linux. If you are on Windows, you have a choice to use either the jar or the exe files.

For the purposes of this tutorial, we will refer to the files as minecraft_server.1.14.2.exe or minecraft_server.1.14.2.jar, but you can replace this with the filename you are using. For example, if your server file is named minecraft_server.1.6.4.jar and an instruction says to use a command such as java -jar minecraft_server.1.14.2.jar you would instead use java -jar minecraft_server.1.6.4.jar.

You can then start setting up your server.
