I'm trying to make a server for me and my friend, but newer versions lag so much for me, so I play version 1.12.2.

How would I change the server version in server.properties?


You can't just change the server version by modifying a setting in the properties. Instead, you have to replace the minecraft_server.jar file in the server folder.

You can get the jar for the version you want to play on from the website MCVersions.net. Then just run the server again and it should be on the correct version!
