RCON is a protocol that allows server administrators to remotely execute Minecraft commands. This can be used by a server owner or developers to create applications that can connect and interact with a Minecraft server.

How to enable RCON on your Minecraft server
RCON by default is disabled on Minecraft server, in this guide we will show you how to enable this securely.

To use Minecraft RCON you will need to add an additional port, we have a guide here How to add an additional port in this guide we will use 8028

Go to the Pebblehost Game Panel https://panel.pebblehost.com/ and then navigate to the File Manager



Click and open the server.properties file



In this file we will need to change the following settings:
rcon.port=25575 -> Change the listed port to the additional port that you set up, in this guide we will use
enable-rcon=false -> enable-rcon=true
rcon.password= -> rcon.password=RandomPassword123 Add a password in, try to make it a secure password I recommend https://passwordsgenerator.net/

Restart your server

Now you have a secure RCON!
