Minecraft Server Failed To Save Server.Properties
Before going further into the solution let’s first get to know the server.properties are.
What is server.properties?
The file server.properties contain all of the parameters for a multiplayer server (Minecraft or Minecraft Classic). When modifying the server.properties, it’s crucial to have the same structure as the original, even if the line order is random.
The key is the text preceding the equal sign, and it should not be modified. The value of the property is the text after the equal sign, which can be changed.
Solutions to Failed To Save Server.Properties Issue
There are some straightforward solutions to this problem that you can try out.
Reloading the Default server.properties
The most straightforward solution is to load a default server. properties file, either by modifying the existing one or by uploading a new one to replace the existing one. A set of properly formatted server.properties files.
Finding The Right Pathway To Java
The problem here is that it fails to create the properties file so it can’t start. So you need to create the right pathway for it to load.
At first, you need to end the current java task from the task manager. The problem we need to fix is that it’s not going to the Java correctly. Now you need to download Jarfix.exe from your browser. When the download completes, double click on it & click yes.
Hopefully, this will fix your pathway to Java & now open up the file and choose the default Java Platform. When you open it, it will go right through without any problem at all. The file should work perfectly.
If you are still facing problems even after trying the above solutions, then just delete the current server files & create a brand new one. If your java settings have any problem then it will not load your server properly. So keep that in mind.
