You may have been wondering how to set up a server so everyone can play. Well, this is the perfect thing to read! First, go to minecraft.net. Next, log in as if you were to download Minecraft. But don't. Click download. Now, underneath the Minecraft download is the server software download. If you are using Windows, get the minecraft-server.exe or some file named like that. Otherwise, get the minecraft-server.jar or some file named like that. Now, create a new folder and call it "Minecraft Server". Place the server software in that folder. Now, double click the file. You will see it create some new files. No window will show up. Don't panic. You don't have a server running yet. You may want to edit the server.properties. But wait, time for eula[pronounced you-lah].txt! Eula is short for End User's License Agreement. The eula says that there will be no money transactions in the game. At the bottom, it will say "eula=false". That means the user hasn't agreed to the eula. Change the "false" to "true". You can still put money transactions, as you can do it on a webpage. Now, time to start the server! Double click the software again to start it. A window should show up giving info. There will be an input field on the right. This is where you enter commands. Type /whitelist on. This ensures that only invited players can join. Now, type /whitelist add @p. Change the @p to your username, as the network cannot find the nearest player. This invites you to the server. Anytime, you can stop the server by typing /stop. These commands you just entered will also work in the Minecraft chat. Now, time to join! Find the adress for your computer. Into the server adress, type the computer adress followed by ":25565". The ":25565" means it is on port 25565. Now, have fun!
