How to Change the Java Version for Your Server

🔀 How to change your Java version for your server 🔀

Navigate to WitherPanel.
Select the server you wish to change the Java version on.
On the sidebar, select "Startup". and then click the docker image field.

We have all the major versions of java available. Note that with future releases of minecraft, we will add more Java versions as required
Select the version you want and it will be used the next time your server starts up.

That's it! Your java version has now been updated.

Here's a little cheat-sheet as to what versions of minecraft use what versions of java!

Java 8 - Versions 1.12.2 and below
Java 11 - Versions 1.13 - 1.17.1
Java 17 - Versions 1.18 and up

We do provide custom docker images for interested users! Open a live chat and we will help set it up for you

If under "Docker Image", it says This server's Docker image has been manually set by an administrator and cannot be changed through this UI., open a ticket for support and we can fix it for you.
