If you're running a Minecraft server on a Game Panel and want to allow players from various Minecraft versions to join, ViaVersion is an essential plugin. This guide will walk you through the process of installing and setting up ViaVersion on your Minecraft server managed through the Game Panel.

What is ViaVersion?

ViaVersion is a powerful plugin that allows server owners to accept connections from multiple client versions of Minecraft. It's ideal for servers looking to cater to a diverse player base without limiting them to a single version.

Step 1: Accessing Your Game Panel

Begin by logging into your Game Panel. Select the Minecraft server you wish to configure for cross-version compatibility.

Step 2: Stopping Your Server

Prior to installing any plugins, it's important to stop your server. This can be done through the server control options within the Game Panel.

Step 3: Downloading ViaVersion

Download the latest version of ViaVersion from its official website or a trusted Minecraft plugin repository. Make sure to choose a version that is compatible with your server's current Minecraft version.

Step 4: Uploading ViaVersion to Your Server

Within the Game Panel, navigate to the File Manager and locate the 'plugins' folder. Upload the ViaVersion .jar file here. If there's no 'plugins' folder, your server may not be running on a compatible software like Spigot or Paper, which are necessary for using ViaVersion.

Step 5: Restarting Your Server

After uploading the ViaVersion plugin, restart your server using the Game Panel. This action will initiate the plugin, integrating its functionality into your server.

Step 6: Confirming ViaVersion Activation

Post-restart, verify that ViaVersion is working by connecting to the server with different versions of the Minecraft client. Server commands can also be used to check the operational status of ViaVersion.

Troubleshooting Common Issues

If you run into any problems, ensure that ViaVersion is compatible with your server version. Also, verify that the plugin file is correctly placed in the 'plugins' folder and is not corrupted.


Installing ViaVersion on your Game Panel managed Minecraft server allows you to support a wide range of Minecraft client versions, enhancing your server's accessibility and appeal to a broader audience of players.
