I'm an OP on a Minecraft server. When I was fiddling around with commands, I wrote in /stop. I didn't know it would stop the server and now the server won't come back online.
The server owner is never on so he can't do anything. Is there anything I can do to get the server back up? Or do I have to wait for the owner to start it again?

    When you contact the server owner, ask him to set op-permission-level to 3 in server.properties. This prevents /stop being used from anywhere but the server console itself, without affecting other commands.

  • @MrLemon So you are sure that I cannot open it unless the owner does or let's me edit the server setup scripts?

  • Yes, unfortunately for you, NBN-Alex's answer is correct.

  • @Nick I belive what MrLemon said in his first comment is a "good idea for the server owner to do" in addition to solving the probelm. (For actual solutions, see answers.)

Unfortanly, the only way to start the server again is to access the PC/server/box that was hosting it. That /stop command is only meant to be used to shutdown the server so the admin can make config changes.

Well, you can't.

But the owner can do something about it. He can end the process, and start the server, or restart the server. If he cannot do that, that's a crappy hosting.
