DynMap - how to access?

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

  • Hey all,

    I've gone into the addons section and added dynmap 2.4 to my server. However, I can't find any documentation about where I would go to access the map from my browser - I saw some references to using port 8123 but I'm assuming that can't be the case otherwise everyone on the server would crash together on that single IP/port. Anyone know? Thanks!

  • Hello Fiordhraoi,

    the following wiki page can hopefully help you. Is unfortunately in German but with the help of a translator feasible.

    As far as I understood your ServerIP x.x.x with the port 8123.

    Example: x.x.x: 8123

    Dynmap – Nitradopedia

    With friendly greetings


  • I'm assuming because their instance on that IP grabbed the port first.

    I do not quite understand the question ^^'

    Of course there is the possibility that the port has been changed by the server owner.

  • I am the server owner. :)

    Only one given process can listen on a port (in this case, 8123 as the default). Since Nitrado is shared IP hosting, someone else already had dynmap running on the IP of my server, so my instance of dynmap couldn't attach to the same port.

    Fixed this by changing the port in dynmap config. :)

  • Hi I've installed dynmap using the "addons" page on the webserver. I see the jar in the plugins folder but it looks like it hasn't fully installed because there is no configuration files. Are there extra steps I need to go through?

    Also whatever happened to the native "Overview Map" that nitrado had?

  • Hello wickerman123,

    Normally the plugin should automatically install itself when starting the server as soon as the .jar is present in the plugins folder.

    Please look in the server log if there is an error message.

    I do not quite understand your second question. I have no GameServer, where is the problem exactly?

    Yours sincerely


  • Yeah looks as though the version installed isn't compatible.

    My second question was referencing this suposed feature of Nitrado: Minecraft - The new Overview Map - faster and more stable than ever! | nitrado.net
    which doesn't appear to be supported anymore as it's not in the tools list.
