How to OP a Player on your Minecraft Server

As a server owner you can grant yourself and other players OP (Short for Operator) powers within the game. Being an OP grants a player access to a wide range of commands that can be used to change a lot of a servers settings.
We recommend that you only grant the OP status to yourself and players that you trust to prevent griefing or accidents from happening.

To make yourself or others OP on your server follow the steps below.

  1. Open the Multicraft server panel. (This displays the pack logo, player slots, RAM usage and other items)
  2. Click Console on the lefthand side.
  3. In the text entry field type: op <playername>. Replacing <playername> with the Minecraft username of the person you wish to make an OP.
    Do not use a / in the console, this will only work with commands ingame
  4. Hit enter or click Send to send the command to the server
  5. To remove OP status from a player type: deop <playername> and hit enter or click Send

An opped player will have access to all server commands listed here: Minecraft Server Commands
As well as any commands provided by Mods and Plugins that are running on your server.

See How to run Minecraft commands in-game for more information and a full list of common commands and their effects.
