This is guide is talking about how to set Minecraft (Craftbukkit) server
First part: Making server

  1. Download from Minecraft/Bukkit website server software and put it in a folder you made for your server
  2. If you downloaded .exe version, just run it and skip to step 9. If you downloaded .jar version,continuethe tutorial
  3. Open Notepad
  4. Type in bat text(see below)
  5. Replacecraftbukkit-1.0.1-R1.jar with name of your jar file(Do not forget to put .jar on end!)
  6. If you use Java 6 change jre7 to jre6
  7. If you are using32-bitJava on a 64-bit machine, change %ProgramFiles% to %ProgramFiles(x86)%
  8. -Xmx1G means that you given 1GB of RAM to the server. You can change the number, and you can put M instead of G to use MB
  9. Save to your server folder in .bat format,NOT IN .TXT FORMAT
  10. Run .bat file
  11. Wait
  12. When itwrites that it is done type stop
  13. You will find that your server folder is now full of files, so open server.properties using Notepad
  14. Now, you need to find your LAN IP. If your OS is Windows then continue last 4 steps, If it is not then I do not know how you will get it :(
  15. Start Command Prompt
  16. Type ipconfig
  17. Search for your IPv4(if you wand hamachi server, use your hamachi IPv4)
  18. Type it inserver.properties at lineserver-ip=

Starting bat text is:
"%ProgramFiles%Javajre7binjava.exe" -Xincgc -Xmx1G -jar craftbukkit-1.0.1-R1.jar

Third part: Publishing your server to Internet

  1. First, you need to port forward. I do not really know anything about port forwarding, so go tohttp://portforward.com/
  2. Chose your router brand
  3. Chose your router model
  4. Click Search
  5. Click M
  6. Click Minecraft Server
  7. Port Forward :/
  8. Be sure that an Firewall is not blocking your server.
  9. Click here
  10. If you use Google Chrome, you will see: Your public IP address is*YOUR IP*-Learn Moreuse that IP and skip next step
  11. Go to first link and you will see your public IP

-IMPORTANT!- If u wand that people from the Internet connect to your server, you need to give them your public IP!

A: Just change in your server.properties lineserver-port=25565 to another number(e.g. server-port=25555) and save the file(Players will then need to put :25555 on the end of the IP and you will need to port forward to that port)
