How To Install Spigot (To use Plugins)

In order for your server to load plugins, you must install the Spigot server JAR - This will give the server the ability to use plugins.

  1. First, login to your Multicraft control panel at
  2. Locate the "JAR File" drop down menu. Click on it and find your desired server JAR and the version you want (you'll find them in the "Minecraft - Plugins" section).
    1. It is important to note that the version of the server JAR you choose will determine the version of plugins you must install. Installing the incorrect version of plugins on a mismatching server version will result in either the plugin not working or potentially many problems that can range from server lag to crashes.
  3. Once you select the JAR file you want, scroll to the bottom of the page and hit save, then click restart at the top to reboot your server and load up that JAR file. You're all done and are now ready to install plugins!
