Bukkit minecraft servers are very popular! Now I will teach you how to make one!
Latest Minecraft version since last updated: 1.8.7
NOTE: this needs java JDK to work! for git. Check out setting up java for getting java jdk. You could always use an alternative way to get the craftbukkit.jar!
Getting the jar!
To get the jar we would need to use git! First download the program git! Get it here!
Run the installer. Basically just press next every time unless you want something custom!
Now we need to get the jar of bukkit we want! Go here to get the latest version! Click BuildTools.jar! (Under the latest artifacts)
Create a new folder called Bukkit 1.8. Now put the BuildTools.jar in that folder!
Then right click the BuildTools.jar and press Git bash!
The console should open. In there you want to type:
java -jar BuildTools.jar
If it does not work re download java jdk!
*Takes about 5-10 minutes to finish you may finish faster or slower. It depends on your internet speed*
Now when you open the folder when done there should be a lot of files. There will be two jars named spigot-1.8.jar and craftbukkit-1.8.jar!
We will use the craftbukkit-1.8.jar!
Making the server!
Now when done make a folder called Server on your desktop!
Open the folder and put the craftbukkit-1.8.jar in it!
Now rename it craftbukkit.jar
Now make a text file called start.bat. Open the file.
Edit the bat file and put in the code:
java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true
Then save and close the bat file. Double click the bat file. A command window should pop up. after it is done close the command window.
There would be a text file called eula. Open the text file. Change the “eula=false” to “eula=true”.
Now save the file and double click the bat file again. Now you have your server! You can connect by typing in the ip spot localhost. To add plugins just put the jars in the plugin folder.
