My friend is running a server on Beta 1.8 and we can't get to the nether. I'm confused, since everywhere I've read says you've been able to do that since Beta 1.6. Any ideas?

    Do you have a properly lit nether gate? What happens when you try to go through it?

Is that a vanilla server? Look into the file server.properties then set to true the properties allow-nether=true.

Is it a Bukkit server? Look into Permissions, maybe they are wrongly set up.

You can also try MultiVerse-NetherPortals if server is Bukkit.


Well, if it's your server, then open server.properties and make sure that it says "true" after the word allow-nether. If it is not yours, then the creator probably has it "false", which disables the nether.
