Login Issues

Hey everyone!

I know there are some pains with logging into the Minecraft server lately, but there is unfortunately little I can do to fix it. This is due to, you guessed it..., minecraft.net's authorization server. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

However, I do have some troubleshooting steps for you guys to try if you run into this:

  • Close Minecraft completely, wait 10 seconds (to ensure it's completely out of system memory), and restart Minecraft.
  • If that fails (you can't connect to minecraft.net), try flushing your DNS cache:
    1. Close Minecraft completely.
    2. Open up Command Prompt
      On Windows XP - Start -> Run, type 'cmd' and press Enter
      On Windows Vista/7 - Start, type 'cmd' in the search and press Enter
    3. Type 'ipconfig /flushdns' (without quotes) and press Enter
    4. Make sure it says "Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache."
    5. Start up Minecraft and try again.

  • If that fails, try restarting your computer entirely.
  • If that fails, just keep trying again...you'll connect eventually.

Hopefully this helps. It's not much, but it's the best I can do to help.
