Welcome to this tutorial on how to make a Minecraft server with Discord! If you’re a fan of Minecraft and want to create a server for you and your friends to enjoy, combining it with Discord can bring your gaming experience to the next level. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process step by step.

What You’ll Need

Before we dive into the details, let’s make sure you have everything you need:

  • A computer to host the server
  • A stable internet connection
  • A Discord account
  • The Discord desktop or web application
  • The Minecraft Java Edition

Setting Up the Minecraft Server

First, let’s set up the Minecraft server:

Step 1: Downloading the Server Software

To start, download the latest version of the Minecraft server software from the official website. Make sure you choose the version that matches your operating system.

Step 2: Creating a Server Folder

Create a dedicated folder on your computer where you want to store your server files. Name it something memorable and easily accessible.

Step 3: Running the Server Software

Navigate to the folder where you stored the server files and run the server software. This will generate some necessary configuration files.

Step 4: Accepting EULA

Open the generated “eula.txt” file and change “eula=false” to “eula=true” to accept Mojang’s End User License Agreement (EULA).

Step 5: Configuring Server Settings (Optional)

If you want to customize your server settings, open the “server.properties” file and modify the parameters to your liking. This step is optional but can enhance your gaming experience.

Integrating Discord

Now, let’s integrate Discord with your Minecraft server:

Step 1: Creating a Discord Server

If you haven’t already, create a new server on Discord. You can do this by clicking the “+” button on the left sidebar and selecting “Create a Server.”

Step 2: Adding a Bot to Your Server

To add a bot to your Discord server, visit the Discord Developer Portal. Create a new application, navigate to the “Bot” tab, and click “Add Bot.” Copy the bot token for later use.

Step 3: Installing and Setting Up DiscordSRV Plugin

Download the DiscordSRV plugin for Minecraft. Place it in your server’s plugin folder. Restart your server to generate the necessary configuration files.

Step 4: Configuring DiscordSRV Plugin

Edit the “config.yml” file generated by DiscordSRV to set up your bot token (paste it where specified) and adjust other settings as desired. Save the changes.

Finalizing Setup

We’re almost done! Here are some final steps:

Step 1: Invite Your Bot to Your Discord Server

To invite your bot to your Discord server, go back to the Discord Developer Portal, navigate to the “OAuth2” tab, select “bot” as the scope, and copy the generated invite link. Open this link in your web browser and choose the server you want to add the bot to.

Step 2: Restarting Your Minecraft Server

Restart your Minecraft server to apply all the changes you’ve made.

Enjoy Your Minecraft Server with Discord!

Congratulations! You’ve successfully set up a Minecraft server with Discord integration.

Now you can chat with your friends, use voice channels, and enhance your gaming experience like never before. Have fun exploring and building together!
