Thanks to our amazing development team, Prisma is very intelligent!


With most server types, the Java version used will be automatically updated; however, this may need to be manually adjusted for custom modpacks, new updates, and other niche cases. We've got you covered!


How do I update the Java version on my server?

You can find this setting under ADVANCED in Prisma! From this dropdown, select JAVA SETTINGS then select the Java version you wish to run. Don't forget to save and restart!

Can one of my server admins do this?

Yes! Server admins in Prisma have access to this setting.


What Java versions does CubedHost support?

Our servers support the following versions of Java: 7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17

How do I know which Java version to use?

If you're not sure what version to use, your best bet is to go based on the version of Minecraft you're trying to run, whether vanilla or otherwise.

  • Minecraft version 1.17 requires Java 16

  • Minecraft versions 1.12 - 1.16 require Java 8

  • Minecraft versions 1.6 - 1.12 require Java 7

Some versions from 1.10-1.16 may be able to use more recent Java versions.


What if my server isn't hosted by CubedHost?

If you're hosting elsewhere, you'll likely need to access your server files (look for .java_version) to adjust this setting. Most hosts should support up to Java 16.

If you're self-hosting, Mojang lists software requirements here.


If you decide to switch to CubedHost, we'd love to have you! We offer free incoming file transfers and we're here to help!
