I have a server and I want to be able to add people to my whitelist from inside the server so that I dont have to restart the server though when I type in what I have to:

/whitelist add username_of_person_to_add

It just says that I dont have permission even though I am a level in the OP.json file

I have tried changing the level that I am an OP though it hasn't helped

  • You need to add yourself as op from the server console or ops.txt (I think) before you can use commands like /whitelist – MBraedley Apr 19 '14 at 14:32
  • Are you using any permissions plugins or vanilla Minecraft? Some more detail about your server setup would be very helpful and assist in getting the question answered. – Ian Lewis Apr 25 '14 at 16:28

One thing you can do is type in console is "whitelist add username"

If you can not do that,


Create a group,

    default: false
    build: true
    - '*'

If you create a group set it to false If you want only certain people to have it or true if anyone can have it.

In console type "pex user add [USERNAME] group add Admin"

If you do not have that try /reload


I managed to do it with the same code through in the GUI.
