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?
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 protection 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 in your Multicraft
Stop your Server
Go to Files and then click on Config Files

Click on Server Settings

Find "Spawn Protection Size" and change the value to 0 (zero)

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

Click on Save
Start your Server

You have just disabled your Spawn Protection Size.

Feel free to open a ticket in your Client Area if you need any further assistance
