OMGcraft's Chad Johnson is here to show us how to set up a Minecraft server. It's easier than you think! We set up a Minecraft server on Mac and Windows.

Setting one up on Windows is a bit easier than on OS X, but both only take a few minutes of set up. The main guide we followed for setting these up are up at the MinecraftWiki.net.

Quick links to instructions: Windows | Mac OS X | Linux

If you run into Java difficulty, check out "How do I set or change the PATH system variable?" page at Java.com After you've done that, don't forget your port forwarding. That will allow outside computers to join your game. Every router's interface for port forwarding is a bit different. Your best bet is to visit PortForward.com to find where your router hides it.

Find out what your connection can handle by using Can I host a Minecraft Server?.
