One of the great ways to customize your Minecraft server is with plugins. With thousands of plugins, your server has endless possibilities from creating Factions to having an online map of your server. Dynmap is an awesome way to expand your server outside of the normal Minecraft gameplay. With this plugin, you can create an online webpage that essentially works like a google map for your Minecraft worlds. Many plugins can also be implemented into the Dynmap map such as Factions and Towny. If you are looking for a way to enhance your server further, Dynmap is the way to go. The setup process is decently easily and we will walk you through each step of it.

Dynmap is a great way to customize your Minecraft server. You can integrate your region plugins such as Towny or Factions to really bring a realistic feel to your community. While Dynmap is great, make sure that you are only using it if your server has enough resources to support it as it can be a bit resource intensive. However, you can upgrade your server at any time!
To upgrade your server, log in to your billing area at the top of the site. In the top menu select services, my services, select the server you want to upgrade, then hit the upgrade/downgrade option. You can select your upgrade there. After you have paid simply restart the server for the upgrade to be applied.
Port is taken
When configuring Dynmap, it’s important that you change the webserver-port to a random 4 digit number. If you run into an error saying the port is taken, you will need to change it to another number.
Hi res causing performance issues
It is very important to set the deftemplatesuffix to vlowres or lowres, if you do not to this you will almost always run into performance issues on the server.
Using MySQL and not FileTree
Maps can become several gigabytes in size, which can tank your MySQL performance. It is best you use the default setting, FileTree.
Texture pack not loading
If you have set the texture pack and it is still not working, there are a few things you need to check for. The first is that you set the “texturepack:” section to the exact filename of the resource pack you uploaded. If that’s correct, check that the resource pack you downloaded is made for the same version of Minecraft that you are running.
