Are you tired of stabbing your friends in the back while fighting for your life, or simply just don't want to give your players a chance for friendly fire? Well, this is the guide for you! In this tutorial, we'll go through the short and simple process of turning off PvP on your server!

Accessing your server

First off, you'll need to log into your game panel. From there, you can access your server!

Once you're logged in, simply navigate to your server by clicking "Manage Server" on the server you wish to change the PvP mode on!

Turning off PvP

Step 1: Find "server-properties" in the File Manager

The setting we'll need to change lies in the "server-properties" file, so we'll have to go there first!

Step 2: Edit the "server-properties" file

Our next step will be editing the "pvp" line in the file. Only two inputs can be valid for this line, "true", or "false". For our purposes, we'll need to set this line to "false"! After changing this line, you must press "Save Content". Afterward, PvP will be turned off the next time you start the server!

ℹ️ You'll have to restart your server after editing this file in order for the changes to take effect!
