Giving Operator (OP) to a Player

We have a video tutorial for giving OP to a player:

 

An operator (OP) is someone who has access to commands that are used in managing the server.

Among the commands that an operator has access to are changing a player's gamemode, updating server difficulty, giving items, kicking and banning players, whitelisting, and even stopping and restarting a server. You can view a list of operator commands here: https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Commands#List_of_commands

There are three ways to set a player as OP:

  • Through the server console
  • In-game command
  • Editing the ops.json file

But in this tutorial, we will only discuss the first two ways as these are less complicated than the the last option.

Please note: If you are using Bedrock Edition on your server, you will need to also enable cheats on your server.


Giving OP through the Server Console:

  1. Login to your Multicraft control panel (https://mc.shockbyte.com) and navigate to your server console.
    Giving OP - Console

  2. On the textbox of your console, type op <username>. Replace <username> with the Minecraft username of the player you want to OP. For this example, we will give OP to player named Steve.

  3. Press enter on your keyboard or click the Send button. You will receive a confirmation message on your console indicating that the player has been made as an operator.

Giving OP In-Game:

For this method, you will need to already be an operator (OP) on the server. If you are not a server operator, you will not be able to make someone else or yourself an OP through this.

  1. In-game, type in the command /op <username>, replacing <username> with the Minecraft username of the player you want to make an operator. For this example, we will give OP to player named Steve.

  2. Press enter on your keyboard. You will receive a confirmation message indicating that the player has now been made as an operator.

Removing a Player as OP:

  • To remove an operator through your server console, use the command deop <username>.
    Giving OP - deop through console
  • To remove an operator in-game, use the command /deop <username>
