How Can I Add an Admin to my Minecraft Server?

Within the Minecraft server console, type op username, replacing username with the Minecraft username of the player you’d like to add as operator.

This command will grant immediate admin access to the players you add, including access to all plugins (unless otherwise configured), without a need to restart the server.

In your Minecraft server’s root directory, there should be a file called ops.txt (create it if it’s not there). To set a user as admin, simply add their username to a new line, save the file, and restart your server.

Now you know how to add a player as admin to a Minecraft server!

Plugins such as GroupManager or PermissionsEX are popularly used, but you should search for a permissions mod that fits your needs and server specifications.

We’ll go into further detail into how to create different access levels for your Minecraft server admins in another guide.
