How to set up a server in Minecraft 1.18 update
In this article, we’ll show you how you can host the server on your own computer. To set up the server on your own PC, you need to download the server.jar file. To do so, follow the necessary steps.
In the Minecraft launcher, click on the installation tab and find the latest release (1.18) and click on the three dots and then click on Edit and click on download server (Server button with a downward arrow).
Once you click it, the download process will begin.
After downloading the server.jar file, create a new folder and move the server.jar file to that folder
After doing so, make sure to enable “File name extension” checked under the “View” option on the topmost side of the folder.
Then right-click on empty space, select “New” and then create “Text document”.
Open the file in Notepad and then type “java -Xmx” then add the value of how much RAM you want the server to use. For example, if you’re using 4GB of RAM the value should be “java -Xmx4096M – Xms4096M -jar” and put the name of the downloaded file. It should look like this “java -Xmx4096M – Xms4096M – jar server.jar nogui”.
Press “Enter” and type “pause” and save the file.
Rename the text file to start.bat. You can change the extension by clicking once on the file.
Once you do so, a prompt screen will appear asking whether you want to change the extension. Click on “Yes”.
Launch the bat file, for this to work, we need the latest JAVA version like Java 17. You can download it from here.
Choose the X64 installer and click the link, once the downloading process is finished, run the application.
Click on “Next” and click on Finish after it has been installed.
After the Java has been installed, go to windows and search “cmd” and press enter.
Under the command prompt type “java -version”, if it shows java 17 then you’re good to go.
Go back to the folder and run the bat file once again and let it finish.
After finishing, the bat file will create more files, close the bat file, and open the “eula.txt” file.
You can see the “eula=false” change it to “eula=true” and save the file. Rerun the bat file again.
It will begin starting the server,
Start the game from the Minecraft launcher and click on “Play”. Once the game is started, you can add your server.
