This tutorial takes you through the steps of setting up your own Java Edition server using the default server software that Mojang Studios distributes free of charge. The software may be installed on most operating systems, including Windows, macOS, GNU/Linux and BSD.
Options for the server JAR go after the -jar minecraft_server.jar part. Run with --help to see all available arguments that can be passed to the server. Below is a list of available commandline options for the server.
Hostman is an application hosting provider to host apps in the cloud. Minecraft is available as a one-click app package on Hostman. Installation takes about 2 minutes, there's an instruction on how to configure the server and start playing. You can have multiple Minecraft services on one server. Try a free demo here.
Once you have managed to locate your router's admin page, and find the Port Forwarding page; hit add new service (may not work) (if you use Belkin, this can be very difficult to perform) or custom service. When you get a page asking to setup the new rule, it should prompt you on what you want to call it. You may name it as you wish, but for simplicity, name it "minecraft". Then, you want to look for "type". If "TCP/UDP" or "Both" isn't an option you will have to create two rules for both protocols. For the ports (internal and external), enter 25565. If it asks for anything else other than output IP (or internal IP, server IP), leave it alone and continue.
An alternate way to set up a server between you and your friends is to set up a VPN (virtual private network). This method may be deemed unrecommended, and an inconvenience for many users due to the fact that all users who wish to connect to the server must download external software in order to join or create server. An alternative to this method is to port forward. A free software utility that can be used to set up a VPN is Hamachi by LogMeIn. OpenVPN is another (free, open source) alternative that supports most OSes, but is a bit more difficult to configure. Free Radmin VPN is another software with no need to register on the website and no limits per the number of users. The free version of Hamachi allows up to 5 connections (i.e. players).
To solve this, the next step is to confirm if your port forwarding (rules) are correct. By Google-ing "minecraft server checker" you'll be able to check if you configured your network correctly such that users outside your network running the Minecraft client can indeed connect to your computer through your router/modem.
I'm running my own Minecraft server. I installed forge-1.7.2-10.12.0.976 using the jar installer however when I now click on forge-1.7.2-10.12.0.976-universal.jar it does not open. Did I do something wrong?
Log is empty. I cleared the log and tried running the jar file and the log file remained blank. Now I'm running the file in the path C:\minecraft server\1.7.2. The log I looked at was latest.log in the logs folder. and I don't see a forge log file unless it is not stored in the C:\minecraft server folder.
Yes it is. I even tried renaming my 1.7.2 folder, recreatign it, redownloading 1.7.2 jar from _server.1.7.2.jar and then downloading the newest release of forge and copying that jar to the 1.7.2 folder. The minecraft_server.1.7.2.jar runs no problem and I can log in to it from my client side computer. However Forge is still not launching.
I've tried 9.76, 9.81 and 9.82: same error. I've used the jar installer and the Win installer. I've been pointing the installers at empty folders and letting the installer download the server jar as well as the forge jar. My server is Windows 2012 SP1 running Java 7 r45 w/ 32 and 64 bit variants installed. I run the minecraft server once before running forge. The server runs fine and my client can connect to it. When I run the forge jar using the java command shown above I get the output above. I've been running Forge servers for about a year-ish now. (since about 1.32-ish of MC)
Noted when I ran the vanilla 1.7.2 server (which spawned fine), I waited for the server to completely generate the world and idle.. I typed "stop" to shut it down cleanly and allow me to run Forge and I was greeted with this shut down "appender" error: (look at the end of the boot log pasted below)
When hosting a server, chances are you may find the same configuration tedious after some time. You may decide to try a different version of Minecraft or a selection of our other games. Having the ability to change versions is great to keep both yourself and your community engaged with the server. In most cases, switching a server version can be a daunting task, as there are often plenty of configurations, files, and more that need to be added. Luckily, our server panel provides an easy dropdown menu to access our large selection with just a few clicks. Combined with the server profile function, you can quickly and efficiently switch between games at any time without any additional downloads needed. With this in mind, we have created this Apex Hosting tutorial to help you get started.
Note: Depending on your selection, the server may take a few minutes to fully download all of the files and start up. You can check the progress inside the server console, then join once it has fully started.
If you want a specific modpack to be installed on your server, in most cases we are able to install a modpack with a server version for free or modpacks without a server version with our Premium Support addon. You will need to create a support ticket with a link to the pack in order to use this service. For new games, consider joining our Discord server and create a new suggestion.
