How To Make Yourself An Op/Owner/Admin

The process of opping a player is relatively simple. However, opping a player will essentially give them access to ALL commands on a server which allows them to bypass some permissions plugins as well, so it should only be given to the most trusted people.

To op a player, simply run the following commands:
From console: op username
In-game: /op username

You can also edit the ops file directly if needed. Note that there are two different ops files. The latest ops file (since 1.7.9) is named ops.json while the older style of ops file is named ops.txt. We'll show both formats here.

ops.txt
notch
user1
player2

ops.json
[
  {
    "uuid": "UUID-goes-here",
    "name": "notch",
    "level": 4
  },
  {
    "uuid": "UUID-goes-here",
    "name": "user1",
    "level": 4
  },
  {
    "uuid": "UUID-goes-here",
    "name": "player1",
    "level": 4
  }
]

* UUIDs can be found by using various websites that allow you to search for them via player name.
