How to Set Up DynMap

This guide assumes you have installed the Dynmap plugin by following the steps in this guide here.

Once Dynmap has been installed, you will need to login to your Multicraft panel and select your server. 

1. Restart your server. This will generate the necessary files for Dynmap.
2. Stop your server.

6. Set the deftemplatesuffix option to "vlowres" or "lowres". (Please note that by creating large maps/HD maps you may risk breaking the Acceptable Usage Policy laid out here.)

You must do this because the default port, 8123, is usually taken by someone else. Do not set a port lower than 1024, or it will not work.

8. Click on the  button. 
9. Click 
10. Click the  button.
11. Once the server is started, go to your console and type "dynmap fullrender [worldname]". Replace "[worldname]" with the name of the world that you want to render.

12. View your server's IP address followed by the webserver port (the one you just set) into a browser. For example:
