Hello there I am painfully aware of the lacking documentation for the admin panel It has nothing to do with you!
Here’s a tiny little tutorial that I hope will get you up and running until I have time to make an actual one. I’m also thinking about moving the AdminPanel to an individual plugin, to increase awareness and provide more specific support for it there.
Until then, here goes:
Make sure you have the Web-API plugin installed like any other plugin (put it into the
mods folder of your server and restart your server)
- After your server has started, use the command
/webapi users add admin to add a new user called
admin to the AdminPanel. This will automatically generate a password and show it to you. You can do this from the server console or ingame.
Now depending on where your minecraft server is running you will have to take different steps
Your minecraft server is running on your own computer/desktop/laptop
- You can access the internet page http://localhost:8080 or https://localhost:8081 to access the admin panel. Please remember that this will only work on the computer you are running the minecraft server from
Your minecraft server is running on another computer or server
You will have to edit the config file
webapi/config.conf and set
host="0.0.0.0", this will make it so that you can connect to the AdminPanel from other computers aswell.
Reload the webapi plugin using
sponge plugins reload, or restart your minecraft server
You should now be able to access the AdminPanel on your server, to do this you need to know the IP/URL of your server.
For example, if your server is running at
126.96.36.199 then you will have to open the web page:
If your server has a domain name, for example
my.mc-server.com, then you can use that:
