How to Enable Command Blocks on Your Minecraft Server

By default, Command Blocks are disabled by Minecraft to stop players from abusing them. As such, they have to enabled manually. You can enable this directly from the Mutlicraft panel or by editing the file via FTP.


  1. Stop your server. This is an important step that must be completed before making any changes to your server.
  2. On your Multicraft Panel (, navigate to Files > Config Files.
    Command Blocks - Config

  3. On the Config Files page, select Server Settings
    Command Blocks - Server settings

  4. Locate the option called enable-command-block, and simply change the value of the text box next to it to say "true". 
    Enable Command Blocks

  5. Once changed, simply press the blue Save button located at the bottom of the page, and restart your server for the changes to take effect.


  1. Connect to your server via FTP, and open the file in your favourite text editor. If you do not have one installed, we recommend Notepad++ (Edit configuration files manually with Notepad++)

  2. Locate the option called enable-command-block, and simply change the value of the option to say "true", as shown in the screenshot below. 
    Enable Command Blocks FTP

  3. Once changed, simply save the file, and ensure that the file has been uploaded back onto your server. Simply restart your server for the change to take effect.

That's all! You should now be able to use Command Blocks in game!
