Step 1: Downloading the software.

First off you are going to have to download the server software provided by Mojang.

You can find it at this link: https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/download/server

When you are done downloading, you will need to make a folder somewhere on your computer called mc server. Then drag the file you just downloaded into it.

Yours should look something like this so far.

Step 2: Setting it up.

In this folder you are going to make a new text document. Call it “start”. Now in this text document you are going to copy and paste this command:

java -Xmx2048M -Xms2048M -jar server.jar nogui

Yours should look like this.
