This is a list of commands that are executed on the server and therefor list/change things that may affect all players. Some of these commands may need coordinates, so make sure you use the right notation.

1. Server commands all start with /
2. Do not type the [ and ] in the command syntax e.g. the correct command is  /time set 12  not  /time set [12]
3. After a change of server settings, the world needs to be restarted for the changes to take effect.
