How to fix the Outdated Server error in Minecraft

There’s nothing more frustrating in Minecraft than trying to connect to your favorite server, only to find you can’t. And even more so when you’re slapped with the “Outdated Server!” error.

Luckily, it’s simple to solve the Outdated Server error. This error usually occurs when your client is using a different version of Minecraft than the server. Find out which version your Server is using. You can do this by going to the server’s website, and checking which version they’re on, or using a site like Best Minecraft Servers to find details of the server and what version it’s one.

Once you have this version number, you’re going to create an alternate installation of your Minecraft game. This sounds complicated, but it’s actually super easy, and can be done within the Minecraft client. To begin, open the Minecraft Launcher and click on the Installations tab.

The Create new installation screen will appear. You don’t need to mess around with any of the options here, apart from the version, and maybe selecting a name. Select the version that’s the same as the server you want to connect to. Install the alternate version.

You can play on the server by simply going to the installation section and selecting that particular installation. You shouldn’t have any problems until the server upgrades to a new version. You can then go back to the current Minecraft installation.
