How to OP yourself on your Minecraft server

By default, there are no Minecraft server operators, also known as OPs, on your Minecraft server. Being an OP grants you full permissions to your Minecraft server. 

To "OP" yourself or others, you will first need to log into ForcePanel, and select your Minecraft server. 

Once you have selected your Minecraft server, please follow these steps:

1. In the text box below the console, type "op <username>", where <username> is the Minecraft username of the player you wish to OP. As an example, we would type "op Notch", without the quotation marks. 
2. Either click the "Send" button located to the right of the text box, or press the "Enter" key on your keyboard.

You will receive a response similar to "[2K [16:24:37 INFO]: Opped Notch"

You have now successfully "opped" that username. If you wish to deop the user in future, you can the "deop" command instead.

Note: Be careful with this command, OP's have full permissions on the server so this can abused. If your server is running a JAR file other than Vanilla Minecraft, we would recommend using a permissions plugin so you can control which permissions players have.
