Hi scmowns2, i know how to set up a server and move the files into your server folder and all that, but after i do all that, i dont know my server ip adress. please help me.
usually if you follow the server set up tutorial correctly, the up is your external IP address from your computer.
Use the IP from www.whatsmyip.org but be sure to port forward your router before that. If you want to test if the server is working, use "localhost" as the IP and you'll connect to the server hosted on the same computer.
