Server Status Wordpress Plugin Query by xPaw


Get online status and players of Minecraft server comfortably in Wordpress widget.
xPaw made Minecraft-query which is getting data from MC server, give him fav ;).
Plugin contains 2 widgets

Minecraft Server - Single will show one server in your widget area with more detailed description and version of server.
Minecraft Server - Multi will show a list of servers with just name and players online.

How it works

All data from servers are stored in a Wordpress database. With that optimalization there is a set timer to 60 seconds, so your website won't ask server for data more then once per 60 sec. Then all the magic is happening in a background, so when somebody visits your site data are loaded fast from dabase and there is set a command to check for new data and load them to database meanwhile.


Before using this class, you need to make sure that your server is running GS4 status listener.

Look for those settings in


Wordpress Installation

Go to your **~ wordpress/wp-content/plugins** and copy there folder minecraft-query.

Then activate it in Wordpress plugins and go to Server Settings and set your properties.

Last thing is going to Widgets, and Drag Minecraft server - Multi or Minecraft server - Single to your widget area and choose whitch server you want to show.


Minecraft implements Source RCON protocol, so I suggest using PHP Source Query library for your RCON needs.
