  • Can't change my server to creative mode from survival?

    +2 votes
    I've just helped my son create a server,  but having built it in Survival mode, he has changed his mind and wants it to be in creative mode. I've changed it in server properties, and I've tried the text change on screen with his username, but he says none of it works and is inconsolable. Any suggestions, do i need to delete server and start again?

    try type

    /gamemode 1

    in the chat (T) - should change it to creative.


    If it does not recognize that command, then edit the ops.txt file and enter his playername in that file and save. Restart server and the command ought to work.

    OMG THANK YOU! I've been looking for this fix all day! It worked!
    How do I edit the ops.txt file?  I have the same problem - but when I type in /gamemode I get a message that I don't have permission for that command.
    Yea me too, how do i change Survival to Creative?
