Public serverlist question

by Doomspade » Tue Jan 16, 2018 02:22

How do I get a server to appear on the public serverlist in minetest? Or does it appear automatically when I create a server and name it "public"

I believe it appears automatically, however I think the server list is delayed slightly so not sure how long it will take to show up (maybe a couple of minutes)

It depends on what kind of minetest software you use ...
* Minetest, the one to play (and can host), or (here is a button "announce server") or
* minetest-server, the one only to host

where both options have also the minetest.conf with an switch:
Code: Select all
server_announce = false

which should be set to true then.

It will appear once you check public (which sets server_announce to true) providing that your server is publicly accessible
