This guide will show you how to properly disable mob griefing, TNT explosions, and fire spread on your server.

The mob griefing option will affect first the explosion caused by mobs, which are disabled if you also disable the mob griefing, but also the ability of mobs to change the world ( for example the ability of Ender Mans to pick up items).

The TNT explosion's option will affect either the TNT should explode or not on your server.

The fire spread option will affect if the fire is spreading on your server or not.

All of those are usually disabled so no player can use them to damage your world.
