Have you ever encountered a problem in the world that only players with OP can break blocks and build? Or even realized that for default players it is not possible to build only in a certain area of the world? This is most likely due to your server having the Spawn Protection enabled.

Well, then this article is here to help you better understand what is happening and how we can solve this problem.

🤔 What Is Happening? 🤔

Minecraft servers, by default, have a function present in the server.properties file that allows the server owner to define a protected area on the server, which is referred to in the configuration file as Spawn Protection Size.

If we think about it, this function can even be used as a means of protecting the server against griefers.

🌱 Disabling This Function 🌱

Just like for each function of the file server.properties, we must make the whole process with your server turned off, and soon after we must change a value.

To disable it:

Log in to your Multicraft here and stop your server.

Click on Files and then click on Config Files.

Click on Server Settings.

Find Spawn Protection Size, change the value to 0 (zero), and click on Save.

NOTE: Yours is probably set to 16. If it's not, no worries, just set it to 0 regardless of the existing value.

Start your Server

Now you have just disabled your Spawn Protection Size.

If you find any issues disabling your spawn protection please contact us on live chat or via the ticket system.
