I have an Old computer, runs this game perfectly, and i want to host a server on that computer, it has windows vista on it 64 bit, i dont want to get rid of vista, but is it possible to use xampp to run the server/s? If you help me ill host a server for you. free
XAMPP is a webserver for hosting websites (HTTP protocol). You don't need any special software other than the minecraft-server.zip that is provided on the multiplayer page of the minecraft website. Then you can port forward and set up the server. Read the how to set up a server tutorials, they're good at explaining it.
problem, i want to host multiple servers. i have one that is a serious build, and i want to wait for that one to get full, then copy the level, then make a greif server. and thanks calzonman for the information about xampp.
which programs would i need to set up a server? not really familiar about servers, but if u need a virus, or trojan.. its all over haah.
