Built-In Commands

Velocity includes a few commands in the core of the proxy by default. These commands were chosen based on how generally useful they are to most users.

Of course, you can always install plugins to add more commands if you want.

The /velocity command

The /velocity command contains a number of subcommands to help manage the proxy.

/velocity plugins

If the user has the velocity.command.plugins permission, they can view all the plugins currently active on the proxy using /velocity plugins, including the name, authors, and version.

/velocity version

Displays the version of Velocity running on the proxy.

/velocity reload

If the user has the velocity.command.reload permission, the proxy will read and reconfigure itself from the velocity.toml on disk. If there are problems with parsing the file, no changes will be applied.

/velocity dump

If the user has the velocity.command.plugins permission, they can use this command to get an anonymized dump of details on the proxy. This can be sent to the Velocity Discord to help us provide support.

The /server command

If the user has the velocity.command.server permission (by default, this is granted to all users), players can use this command to view and switch to another server.

Executing just /server will send the user the name of the server they are currently on, along with options to move to other servers configured on the proxy.

If a server name is specified, Velocity will attempt to connect to the server.

The /shutdown command

When executed from the console, this will gracefully shut down the Velocity proxy. All players will be disconnected from the proxy and plugins will have a chance to finish up before the proxy shuts down. An optional reason can be given.

The /glist command

If the user has the velocity.command.glist permission (by default, this is granted to nobody), players can use this command to view the number of players currently on the proxy and use /glist all to get a listing of players per server.
