I attempted to follow the guide at
and even downloaded the server jar from
, thinking it would be useful, but still managed to get stuck on the instructions.
After punching in the java -version in the command prompt on my Win10, it spit out ‘java version 1.8.0_102’. That was downloaded from the link provided on the ‘how to’ page linked above. I’m not sure if it’s outdated or not. Then I proceeded with the ‘java -jar server-0.16.4.jar -dataFolder /path’ command, with an error popping up saying:
Error: Unable to access jarfile server-0.16.4.jar.
I don’t know if this part of the Blynk package was intended to picked up and implemented by server noobs but the instructions look a little barren compared to what I youtubed:
I’m not sure if the above works, as I didn’t want to jack with stuff I knew little about but I did watch the video and the steps seem more numerous than those outlined in the quick setup guide.
Anyways, I just want to be able to set up my own server and see if it’s something I want in the long term or if it’s optional. Any insight on this matter would be nice.
