    Download a map (there's a forum section where you can find several), do not unpack it. It will either be in .dat format or .tar.gz, either way, copy the whole thing to your minecraft server folder, rename it to server_level.dat

    posted a message on Does your server not work? - The list of possible solutions
    Quote from Joe »
    Everything I try fails, I'm a noob at computer stuff, but I have hosted my own server multitudes of times before, minecraft and otherwise. It was pretty straightforward, and so far all that I can do doesn't work. I tried re-installing the server software and everything like that, but it still wont work. I've tried using the external URL and the one you posted, but when I look at my server it says 127.0.0.1 is an illegal name or something. Any suggestions?

    Rephrased #3 in the first post, the solution to the illegal name error is setting verify-names to false in the server.properties file.

    Well, without knowing what "the stuff needed" is, I'm afraid I can't give you any suggestions. Be more specific, and as always, check the Java console for errors. (There's a thread on how to do that in the bugs and problems forum)

    posted a message on ! 03:36:22 server.properties is broken! Delete it or fix it!
    The port is up to you. The default one is 25565 (or something like that, there's a pinned topic about getting servers to work, the port is in there). If you've got a router you'll also need to forward that port, there's guides on how to do that all over the forum as well.

    So just change it to this:
    #Minecraft server properties
    #Fri Jun 19 14:46:39 CEST 2009
    verify-names=false
    port=25565
    max-players=16
    server-name=Kratospie's Sylvarant (RP)
    public=true
    motd=Hello! Grifers and Hackers will be IP banned. Have a nice day!
    max-connections=3

    Try a better browser.

    And don't say 'Firefox is the best' because it isn't. It is far from it.

    Doesn't mean it doesn't or shouldn't work with Firefox, don't derail.

    posted a message on Applet refused?
    Quote from LG_Legacy »
    It's your browser settings, look around.

    Tools> Options

    Your java might be turned off, or something with browser settings. If anything, get a new browser.

    None of this makes sense. When it reports that the permissions for the applet was refused, Java is running, but the permissions dialog either didn't appear, or wasn't accepted. If Java was turned off, you'd see a blank screen.

    Hop onto the IRC channel if you still need people to test if they can connect to your server, there's almost always someone with some spare time to help out.

    Hi,
    I used Skype's guide to get a server running but when I try to connect over

    http://www.minecraft.net/play.jsp?ip=127.0.0.1&port=25565

    the screen only shows the Minecraft logo and returns totally black after few seconds. Sometimes the Minecraft logo doesn't appear and it just says "Applet loaded" and the screen turns black then.
    The server is in the server list atm ("Bring back Boboland") but I also can't connect over the external link from my brother's computer (message: "The server is probably down").

    I installed the latest Java version, all firewalls are off.

    Thank you for any help!

    Please check the java console for errors before posting a support thread, the more we know the faster the solution will be found. Even a console with no errors gives insight as to what is the problem.

    Using the link you posted should work as long as you haven't edited the port in the server.properties file. Does the server console window say anything when you try to connect?

    Thats your Internal IP, not your external. Check your external at ip-addres.com and replace the ip with the one on the site.

    The localhost IP should work for him, so using the external IP would only add one more obstacle for troubleshooting.

    posted a message on Impossible for me to create a server?
    If you haven't changed the default password, and just forgotten it, you can always google for stuff like "Netgear WGR61262 default password" (Obviously replace the model example with your router) and you'll usually find it. If it's not the default one, resetting it as suggested earlier will give it the default password.

    Hmm, well, I'd recommend checking out the java console for possible errors that could be the cause.

    Another thing to try would be to completely remove Java and reinstalling it.

    Hey guys,
    How do I run a private server on a mac? I cannot execute a .bat file on Mac OS. Thanks!

    Natural.

    Sorry but this has to be said

    Real computer.

    /annoy

    No, you didn't have to say anything like it. Especially when the problem is the OS, not the computer. If Notch hadn't given Windows users a batch file to start the server with, they'd be posting the same things. Now go away.

    @Natural, define "weird ****", take a screenshot or copy the contents of the terminal.

    posted a message on start server.bat gives error, closes. "'java' is not recognized as..."
    Quote from rockerest »
    I have no idea what the tutorial says, but the first problem ("Java not recognized....etc etc") is because Java needs to be added to the Windows environment PATH variable.

    Go to Control Panel > System > Environment Variables and edit the one named "PATH" to include the location of java.exe (like, C:\Program Files\Java\JRE\java##.#_##\bin\)

    Save the variable, and get out of all the windows. That should fix that error.

    The error that the people are having more recently ("Exception in 'main'....") has to do with how the Java program is running. You need to navigate to the folder where the server files are located and run the bat file from the command line. Not sure why double clicking doesn't work, but cmd line should do the trick.

    -rock

    QFT. An alternative to adding it as an environment variable is to edit this line in the .bat file
    java -cp minecraft-server.jar com.mojang.minecraft.server.MinecraftServer
    And add the full path to java, like such (Be sure to check the path):
    "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -cp minecraft-server.jar com.mojang.minecraft.server.MinecraftServer
