Tutorials/Setting up a server
This tutorial takes you through the steps of setting up your own server using the default server software that Mojang distributes free of charge. The software may be installed on most operating systems, including Windows, Mac and Linux. Regardless of your operating system, you must begin by downloading the server software from the minecraft download page. The server is available as either a Java .jar file or a Windows .exe file. Notes: Setting up a server takes some time, and some technical knowledge. Note: There is also custom server software available, which most large servers use, but these applications are not supported by Mojang.
