How do I add myself as an OP/Admin on my Minecraft server?


To add yourself as an admin/op (operator) in Minecraft servers, this is done simply by running a console command within the server. If you want to add individual permissions for certain players/groups, you will need a plugin such as PermissionsEx, which is compatible with Spigot, Bukkit, and Paper.

How to set and remove OP
