This is a small instruction to change your MOTD (Message of the day) of your server.
Minecraft-server-list.com uses the MOTD to verify ownership of a server, if an owner wants to change ownership of a listing on this website.
- Open the file server.properties file with a simple text editor link Notepad
- Change the line that starts with motd= to what you want it to say.
- Save the file
- Reload / restart the server to catch the new value
If you are doing this to Verify Ownership of a Minecraft Server that is listed on this website, make sure to change the MOTD to the following:
- motd=Username owns this MC Server
Replace Username with your login name on this website – not your Minecraft username!.
It is also important that you make the rest of the link exactly like shown above – do not leave out any part of the sentance.
