I have a website and would like to display a list of players online in my server. Most likely a php or javascript function would be ideal. Is this information public or do I need server mods to do this?

https://dinnerbone.com/minecraft/tools/status/ Has a version where if an IP:port is specified, the list of players is returned. I would like a version like this on my site, except for just my server.

Does anyone know of anything like this?

  • Do you mean like a list that you see when you click "Tab" in game? It's certainly possible to do, and I have seen it been done before on servers.

  • @Chantola He's trying to integrate Dinnerbone's tool onto his Website, like a HTML; web version of the player list. | Also, I'm sure there's a plugin that does this. (Just don't know what it's called)

  • I'm not trying to use Dinnerbone's tool but just implement something similar to it where it would just show who is online in the server.

To do this your server needs to have RCON enabled.
Basically that allows services to access data from your server. (Read more about RCON here)

An example implementation in PHP that you could use on your website would be this:

Or you could use the same code Dinnerbone used:

  • Would the fact that dinnerbone's server stats tool works on my server mean that RCON is enabled?
