* Supported OSs only. BSD, Mac OS and 32-bit Linux systems require the Mono Runtime.
   Java is required to run the Minecraft server itself.

Why use McMyAdmin?

More than 75000 Minecraft servers worldwide are powered by McMyAdmin. So what's in it for you?

Security taken seriously

McMyAdmin is the only Minecraft admin panel to undergo independent penetration testing by a CREST approved security specialist.†

We work with Dionach - a leading CREST approved independent information security specialist to ensure that McMyAdmin complies with best security practices and is as secure as possible against potential attacks.

Easy to install, easy to use

No webserver to configure, no database to set up. McMyAdmin includes almost everything you need to get going quickly and with minimal fuss.

Most common administrative tasks can be performed via the friendly user interface, no need to edit text files or write scripts.

Free to try

McMyAdmin Personal includes almost all the functionality of McMyAdmin Professional, allowing you to see how great McMyAdmin is before you buy.

See the Editions page to compare versions.

Regular Updates

McMyAdmin has enjoyed the benefit of over 3 years of updates and improvements, and continues to get regular updates to add new features, support new mods or support the latest version of the Minecraft server.

We Listen

Anyone can suggest new features or changes they'd like to see in McMyAdmin via our support page. If it gets enough votes, we start looking at how it can be brought on board. So far we've brought on over 60 user suggestions into McMyAdmin.

Manage from anywhere

You can administer your server from anywhere with an internet connection. The McMyAdmin user interface works great on tablets, or you can use the McMyAdmin Mobile app* for iOS. (And we've got an Android version on the way!)

Great for hosts

No complex licencing systems or provisioning requirements. McMyAdmin is easy to manage in either VPSs or shared-hosting environments. Fully configurable via command line arguments for ease of deployment. Works on both Windows Server and GNU/Linux based servers.

Reduce server costs

McMyAdmin has a unique server sleeping feature not found in any other control panel. It allows you to save resources by stopping the Minecraft server, but still be able to accept players. When a player connects, the server is woken up. The entire process is quick, seamless, fully automated, and turned on with just a single setting.

Reduce support costs

Users can perform most common administrative tasks such as performing updates, installing plugins or changing the server configuration without ever having to touch a configuration file, it's all kept plain and simple. This translates into fewer support requests and less downtime from user issues.

Download McMyAdmin 2

Select your platform:

Installing on 32-bit Linux, Mac OS and BSD

Under these operating systems, the Mono framework is required to run McMyAdmin as there is not a native version of McMyAdmin available for these platforms at this time.

For MacOS or openSUSE you can download Mono from the Mono Project download page - for 32-bit Linux and BSD, you install it via your distributions package manager.

Once Mono is installed, run the following as a non-root user:

mkdir ~/McMyAdmin
cd ~/McMyAdmin
wget https://mcmyadmin.com/Downloads/MCMA2-Latest.zip
unzip MCMA2-Latest.zip
rm MCMA2-Latest.zip
mono McMyAdmin.exe -setpass [YOURPASSWORD] -configonly

You can then start McMyAdmin by running:

cd ~/McMyAdmin; mono McMyAdmin.exe

Note that you must change to the directory McMyAdmin is installed to before running it. You cannot run it using a relative or absolute path.

Installing on Windows

Requires Windows Vista/Server 2008 or newer. Windows XP and Server 2003 are no longer supported.

McMyAdmin requires the .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 to be installed. Most systems have it already installed, otherwise you can download it from the Microsoft Download Center.

Under Windows Server, you need to install the .Net 3.5 Feature via the Server Manager.

For Windows Server Core editions without a GUI, you can download the core archive directly instead of using the GUI installer. A readme file is included with instructions on installing the service via the command line.

Installing on 64-bit Linux

Run the following as root:

cd /usr/local
wget https://mcmyadmin.com/Downloads/etc.zip
unzip etc.zip; rm etc.zip

Then run the following as a non-root user:

mkdir ~/McMyAdmin
cd ~/McMyAdmin
wget https://mcmyadmin.com/Downloads/MCMA2_glibc26_2.zip
unzip MCMA2_glibc26_2.zip
rm MCMA2_glibc26_2.zip
./MCMA2_Linux_x86_64 -setpass [YOURPASSWORD] -configonly

You can then start McMyAdmin by running:

cd ~/McMyAdmin; ./MCMA2_Linux_x86_64

Note that you must change to the directory McMyAdmin is installed to before running it. You cannot run it using a relative or absolute path.

Some information we collect ourselves, and some is provided by 3rd parties such as our payment provider. Primarily the data is collected for the purposes of invoicing and billing, but may also be used for analytics.

We are a registered data handler in the United Kingdom with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) in compliance with the Data Protection Act (1998).

This privacy policy explains what information is collected, what it is for, and how you can keep your information up-to-date.


The following applies to all products and services offered by CCL. It does not extend to 3rd parties that use our products or services.

  • Basic information about your computer, such as its operating system, make and model or details on specific hardware installed.
  • A unique identifier for your computer that distinguishes it from others.

Information we share

CubeCoders Limited does not share any personally identifiable information with 3rd parties except when reasonably necessary, such as in the following circumstances:

  • We have your express permission to do so.
  • Any circumstance where we are required to by law (such as a court order) or as part of a legal process.

My licence failed to migrate

If you're getting a message inside McMyAdmin that your licence failed to migrate, try logging into the Licence Manager, making sure to try both the email address currently on your paypal account (rather than the one you originally used to pay) and the one currently shown on your licence.

From the licence manager you can get your new key, which you can enter into your McMyAdmin.conf (or you can remove the old key from McMyAdmin.conf and activate as normal).

Common Issues and Questions

The licence was bought by someone else on my belhalf.

You'll need to ask them to retrieve the new key, as they are the legal owner of the licence (McMyAdmin licences are non-transferrable)

I don't have access to the email address used.

Use the 'billing or licencing issue' section on the contact form - and make sure to include your full name, postal code, and original McMyAdmin key. This needs to be the key that contains your email address and looks like:


You should not include the long encrypted key shown in McMyAdmin.conf as we cannot decrypt them.

How can the licence system know my new email address when I never gave it to you?

To migrate old licences into the new system, we requested a transaction log from Paypal. The logs they give us include the current email address on your account rather than the one on your account when you originally made the purchase.

Why does my licence need migrating?

In April 2014 CubeCoders (the company that owns and develops McMyAdmin) rolled out a new centralized licence system to be used across all CubeCoders products.

The new system was required to perform tasks such as generating formal invoices and VAT receipts for EU countries, and allowing CubeCoders and users better control over product licences.

In order to avoid having to maintain two separate licence systems, the old system is being shut down and all licences were moved over to the new system.

When is the old system being shut down?

We expect to shut the old system down around June 2014
