Step 5: OP'ing the User

Make sure you or the user you are OPing is connected to the server. Then, in the Console's text box, type the following command and hit enter: op "USERNAME" 

🛑 IMPORTANT: The user you are OP'ing must be online and connected to the server. If they are not, the command will not work.
