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.

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.)

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