Hey MinecraftGamers! 👋

In this guide, we will learn how to set a player as OP (admin) (add an admin to a minecraft server)

This can be done in two ways

Method 1 Add a Minecraft server Admin to your ops.txt file

Step 1 First you'll need to login to the dedicated minecraft panel

Step 2 Select the file manager menu and create a file called ops.txt

Step 3 To set a user as admin, simply add their username to a new line, save the file, and restart your server.

Step 3 Restart your server

This will grant immediate admin access to the players you add, including access to all plugins.

Method 2 Add a Minecraft server Admin Using /op username

This can be done in two ways

Step 1 Login to the dedicatedminecraft control panel. Step 2 Select the Minecraft server that you want to add admin on and you'll be met with a console window. Step 3 You'll see the type command on the console and type This op username and enter. change the username to the username you'd like to make admin.

This command will grant immediate admin access to the players you add, including access to all plugins (unless otherwise configured), you will not need to restart server.
