The first setting you will need to change is deftemplatesuffix


deftemplatesuffix: hires


deftemplatesuffix: lowres or deftemplatesuffix: vlowres

This is required due to the the extreme amount of storage that Dynmap uses, if it is not changed it is very likely that your server will go well above the soft limit of 30 GB of disk storage for your server.


The second setting is webserver-port

webserver-port: 25568

webserver-port: 25569

webserver-port: 25570
