Do you want to prevent strange players from joining your server? Or only allow a few? This article will help you do this.

Whitelists are a great alternative to creating passwords for your server, which can only be done through Bukkit / Spigot plugins.

For this tutorial, you’ll need to be an OP. If you don’t know how to become an OP (operator), please follow our article How to: OP Yourself on Your Minecraft Server.


Enabling/Disabling Your Whitelist

You can enable and disable your whitelist through the game and in your console as well.



If you are playing Minecraft on your server, you can run:
/whitelist on to enable your whitelist.
/whitelist off to disable your whitelist.

You can run these commands in your console as well! Just type them in without the "/"


Adding/Removing Players in your whitelist

If you want to add friends to your whitelist you need to run the whitelist command.



If you are inside your server playing Minecraft. You can type:
/whitelist add <nickname> to add a player in the whitelist.
/whitelist remove <nickname> to remove a player from the whitelist.

You can run these commands in your console as well! Just type them in without the "/"

Refreshing your whitelist

If it seems like these commands are not working, you can refresh your whitelist.
Run /whitelist reload. This command will reload your server’s whitelist file.

If you want to see all players in the whitelist just type /whitelist list.

Definitely activate the whitelist

You probably won't need to do this, but if the whitelist is not activating, you can activate it through Multicraft.

Login into your Multicraft
Stop your server
Go to FILES
Click on "Config Files"



Click on "Server Settings".



Find “Whitelisting” and set it to “Enabled”.



Once it is enabled, click on “Save” and start your server.

Make sure you have clicked “Save” before starting your server!
