How to install & configure Dynmap

Firstly, What is Dynmap? Dynmap is a plugin that allows players to view the world on the web. They can see player locations in all worlds and they can also talk to in-game players on the site.

Your server needs to support Bukkit/Spigot plugins for this to work!

Let’s find out how to install the dynmap plugin.

Upload the plugin to the “plugins” folder. The plugins folder is located in the root directory of the server. Usually where the server.jar is located at.

How to configure Dynmap

Head back over to the “File Manager” and go into the plugins directory and find the “dynmap” folder

Find the “configuration.txt” file.

Open the config file and find the line webserver-port: in the file. The default port is set to 8123 however we need to set it to the port that we were assigned in the “Networks” tab. In this case, the port number we will be using is “25915”.

Restart the server again and dynmap should now be installed successfully.

You are now able to access dynmap. To access dynmap, use your server IP followed by the port. Replace <ip> with the ip of your server and <port> with the port of the dynmap.

Example: http://<ip>:<port>
