Install Glowstone

  1. Download the latest build of Glowstone.
  2. Move the jar file to your server folder. If you drop and run the jar in your current server folder, it will automatically migrate most settings to Glowstone.
  3. Follow the instructions for your operating system below.

Windows

Using a text editor like Notepad, create a new start script named start.bat to launch the jar file:

@echo off
java -Xms768M -XX:+UseG1GC -jar glowstone.jar
pause

Make sure you select All Files as the file type in the save window.

Finally, double click the start.bat file.

GNU/Linux

Using a text editor like gedit, mousepad, Atom, Sublime Text, nano, (Neo)vi(m), Kate or emacs, create a new start script named start.sh to launch the jar file:

#!/bin/sh
BINDIR=$(dirname "$(readlink -fn "$0")")
cd "$BINDIR"
java -Xms768M -XX:+UseG1GC -jar glowstone.jar

Open terminal, go to your Glowstone folder and enter this command to give the script execute permissions:

chmod +x start.sh

Enter this command in the terminal to start the server:

./start.sh

macOS

Using a text editor like TextEdit, create a new start script named start.command to launch the jar file:

#!/bin/bash
cd '$( dirname "$0" )'
java -Xms768M -XX:+UseG1GC -jar glowstone.jar

Open terminal, change current directory by typing cd and dragging and dropping the Glowstone folder into terminal window.

At this point it should look like this:

cd /Users/YourName/YourGlowstoneFolder/Glowstone

If you think that is correct press enter and move to the next step.

Just type (do not enter!) this command to give the script execute permissions:

chmod a+x

Drag start.command into the Terminal window. Confirm there is a space between chmod a+x and the start.command path, and then enter. Finally, double click the start.command file to start the server.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
