Hello everyone , some people may have problems for setting up Dynmap plugin and cannot find the right port for them , in this thread you will learn how to setup Dynmap plugin for your server
NOTE : (THIS TUTORIAL IS ONLY FOR FREEMCSERVER HOSTING USERS)

(IN THIS TUTOURIAL I RECOMMEND USING ONLY WEBFTP AND NOT FTP CLIENT BECAUSE WE ARE GOING TO USE WEBFTP IN THE TUTORIAL)

1. install Dynmap plugin , to go to Dynmap plugin download link click here

2. copy dynmap plugin jar file to your server "plugins" folder and restart the server so the config files can be generated


NOTE : if you don't know how to install dynmap plugin to your server folders go see my previous thread about installing plugins click here

3. after restarting the server go to your server panel and click "Settings" tab then click "Ports" selection

4. now click the "Port type" field a scroll will show choose "TCP" selection from it

5. In the "Port Number" field type a random number that are between 50000 - 51000 (example : 50293) then click "Create" Button and copy the port number you just created because we need it in the next steps

6. go back to your server folders via WebFTP then go to plugins folder then to dynmap folder (plugins > dynmap) and right click configuration.txt and choose "Edit"

7. an online text editor will open , scroll down to where it says "webserver-port :" or you can simply hit CTRL+F on your keyboard and type TCP in the search bar

8. in "webserver-port :" you should type the port number after the colon that i told you to copy in step 5 (example : webserver-port : <your port number > type it without the brackets) after that click "Save" in the right bottom of the page then click "Close" button

8. now start your server and the map website link should be like : <serverip>:<port number>( in the <port number> you should type the port number you copied in step 5 you also need to type the port number without the brackets , and the <serverip> you should take it from your server panel and don't type it with brackets as well)

NOTE : you should not use any subdomain to view the map website

FIN .

It isn't only scorpion.de.freemcserver.net but say you are on a different node then you would use that node IP instead. Most of you may have scorpion or if you are on the VIP node you have a different IP.
Indeed, @AdbooXD you might want to update so you tell the user to get the node IP from the control panel :)
