Minecraft EULA Server INFO WARN Messages in Console

As of Minecraft 1.7.10 onwards, the MineCraft developers at Mojang now require you to modify the eula.txt file to allow a server to start up (by doing so you are indicating that you accept and agree with their EULA).

When you first start your server on a build based on 1.7.10 or later, you may see the following messages in your console:
[Server] Server thread/INFO You need to agree to the EULA in order to run the server. Go to eula.txt for more info.
[Server] Server thread/WARN Failed to load eula.txt

This indicates you've not yet read, accepted and updated their End User Licence Agreement.

To allow the server to start up, you can navigate to
Files > Config Files > eula.txt
page in the Multicraft Control Panel and change the eula=false to eula=true then save.
Once completed you can Stop and then Start your server to reload the EULA setting

Alternatively, you can complete the process by FTP...

  1. Go to the FTP File Access page in your Multicraft panel and enter your password (it is the same as your control panel login password)
  2. Once logged into the web-based FTP service, click to edit the eula.txt file and look for the "eula=false" entry
  3. Change the =false to =true, then save the file
  4. Start up your server again and it should start up without any messages about EULA in the console

*note* You will probably have to do this from now on every time you change MineCraft versions - we apologise if this is an inconvenience, but it's a decision of Mojang not us :(
