How to OP someone in Minecraft server

Hello everyone, welcome to another Minecraft tutorial. Today we are going to learn how to OP someone or yourself on your GameTeam Minecraft server. But before we get to the steps, let’s get the basics out of the way.

What does OP mean in Minecraft

OP in Minecraft stands for “overpowered” or “operator”.

OPing someone is basically giving the player admin commands and privileges. It’s some sort of a God-mode, allowing you to do anything you want. You can do things like enabling command blocks on Minecraft server, giving items to yourself or to anyone.

Before you can get started with OPing other players, you should first have the authority. So let’s go ahead and OP ourselves.

How to OP yourself in Minecraft

  1. To get started simply login to your GameTeam control panel. You should be redirected to your dashboard where you’ll see the console.

2. Go down to the command area. This area is where we’ll be writing our commands to control our server.

3. Type “op username” and press enter. Don’t forget to replace “username” with your in game handle.

How to set OP permission levels?

It’s important to define permission levels for each OP player to allow them to perform certain actions within the game.

To change a player’s OP permission level:

  1. Locate File Manager menu on the left section of your screen and click on it.

2. Inside the page, there’ll be a file named “”, open it. That file stores all the settings for a multiplayer Minecraft server.

3. File editor will contain a lot of game related options that you can modify to your liking. However, for this tutorial, we are only interested in the “op-permission-level=4”

4. As you might have noticed, permission level for OP is set to 4 by default. This is the highest permission level for an OP, which means every single OP in the game can run every single command that Minecraft has. You can set the level between 1 and 4. Each number giving different set of permissions.

Permission level 1: Operators can bypass spawn protection

Permission level 2: Operators can use clear, difficulty, gamemod, gamerule, give, and tp commands. They can also edit command blocks.

Permission level 3: Operators can ban, DE-OP, kick and OP other players in the game.s

Permission level 4: Operators can use stop command.

PS: Permission level 4 OPs can perform actions that level 1, 2, 3 OPs can perform.

5. Once you’re done, simply click on “SAVE CONTENT” button.

6. Restart your server for the changes to take effect.

How to DE-OP someone in Minecraft

DE-OPing a player is as easy as OPing them in the first place.

  1. Go to your server console and enter the following command:
    “deop username”

2. Once you click enter, username you typed in will lose all its Operator permissions.
