How To Host A Minecraft Server On Your PC | Minecraft Server For 1.12 & 1.12.2

In this Windows Tutorial as requested I will be showing you how to make a Minecraft Server this is pretty straight forward but awesome because it means you can play with your friends on your very own server. This server setup is only compatible with Minecraft: Java Edition.

Find Out Your IP:

Should you want to start the server with it’s graphical user interface you can leave out the “nogui” part.

If your friends can not connect to your Minecraft Server then this means you probably need to port forward the server if you search YouTube for your internet provider then you should find a video on how to do this.

  1. yes the same thing happens to me, even when i click run as admin it closes intantly, other than that awesome video and explaination!

  2. If anyone is looking for a great minecraft server host HostHorde is amazing. After using them I would go back to any other host. 10/10. if you wanna check them out. I have the unlimited plan and it is actually unlimited everything. would highly recommend.

  3. ran many a server and suddenly with the new update i cant. it doesnt generate any files and closes instantly even when i run as admin

  4. If you are running into an issue where the .bat is instantly closing, change the name of the .jar file to “minecraft_server.1.12.2” and run

  5. I guess it works, but my computer can’t keep up the server. I guess it’s too difficult for my processor (and RAM) to host a server while playing on it.

  6. Make sure in your server file the online mode is set to false and not true, false actually means online.

  7. when i download the file from the mincraft website it isnt an “executable JAR file” it just says JAR file and I 100 percent sure thats the reason it wont work for me. anyone understand or know how to change this? ive been doing everything 100 percent the same as he does.

  8. If you’re having trouble with the .bat file add me on Discord: MCXBPE#0563
    There’s a few solutions depending on your problem.

  9. at 2:39 it was so freaking slow for me!!! idk if giving up was the best idea or idk if i did something wrong or something??
    i’m sad 🙁

  10. I was having some problem running the bat file but then I click the minecraft server.exe and it just did as the video was told

  11. I got the server up, but my friend still can’t join because ” it’s not public” any ideas on how to make it public?

  12. i done what you done but when i run that Run Server.bat it opens for a second and thet it close it self any fixes? PLS

  13. When Joining from IP in the Multiplier Menu I got the “io.netty.channe.Abstract…” Error. I Assume I have gtg to my router at this point… but if anyone has an easy fix, it would be a good reply.

  14. FIX: Run Server.bat crashing

    go to: This computer -> Control Panel -> System and Security -> System -> Advanced system settings -> Enviroment Variables -> and under the box “System variables” search for “_JAVA_OPTIONS” -> click on it -> Edit -> and then change “variable value” from anything you have to “-Xmx5000M” OR “-Xms5000M”

    then “ok” everything and it should work :3
