How to Enable Startup Parameters on Your Server

A startup parameter is an advanced instruction for your server that is issued when the server boots up. Startup parameters can be used to control numerous startup settings, and we provide access to a list of these options to all clients.

To enable startup parameters on your server, you must be first running a custom JAR on your server. This is a necessity for turning on startup parameters. Remember you can do this using any server type - just see our guide on it.

  1. Stop your server.
  2. Navigate to Advanced > Startup parameters.
  3. Check the boxes next to the parameters you would like to start your server with. In this example, I have chosen two common startup parameters: -Dfml.queryResult=confirm (to pre-select /fml confirm on Forge servers) and -XX:+UseG1GC (to enable the Garbage collector)
  4. Restart your server.

Your server will now start with your chosen parameters.
