Recommended Posts



I am not sure how much you deal with game support. I been running into a problem with Minecraft. I did not edit anything. I used everything default. I upgraded to the new MC version. I am not sure why I keep getting this port error. I changed the ports in the XML to us something different but no matter what I do I get this error. I googled things for hours n got zero that work,


"[13:07:43] [server thread/INFO]: Generating keypair

[13:07:44] [server thread/INFO]: Starting Minecraft server on *:25565

[13:07:44] [server thread/WARN]: **** FAILED TO BIND TO PORT!

[13:07:44] [server thread/WARN]: The exception was: java.net.BindException: Address already in use

[13:07:44] [server thread/WARN]: Perhaps a server is already running on that port?"

Also there is something else I saw in the console that is odd.

"# [13:07:43] [server thread/INFO]: Starting minecraft server version 1.7.4

[13:07:43] [server thread/INFO]: Loading properties

[13:07:43] [server thread/WARN]: server.properties does not exist

[13:07:43] [server thread/INFO]: Generating new properties file"


its not running version 1.7.4. I put in the "minecraft_server.1.7.10.jar"

It also says that the server.properties does not exist but it has always been there even.


Its so odd.

You're probably just using the wrong jar file. You have to specify which jar file you want to run the server with from the command line.


If you want, I can have a look at it for you. Just add me on Skype: dennis.hermannsen
