  • Any help with squeezing power out of an old computer for a server?
    Bukkit and CraftBukkit are dead. Its successor is Spigot, which is currently being succeeded by Paper.
  • Can i have both papermc and fabric on a server? | 2021-10-12
  • Questions about Plug-ins
    To start, get Paper (A fork of spigot), or more preferably Purpur (A fork of Paper). Upload these to your server and install the plugins.
  • Oversized chunk is crashing my game
    I would suggest you use paper. It's a drop in replacement for spigot, providing various preformance improvements and bug patches. Also like u/SociableFish97 said don't use clearlagg, it sucks. Often doing more harm than good
  • Tips for starting an MC server?
    Use software like paper or airplane or purpur. All derivatives of each other. Paper is a fork of spigot with preformance improvements and bug patches. Airplane is a fork of paper with minor preformance improvements. Purpur is a upstream of Paper and airplane adding various customizations. Use aikar's flags. DO NOT use optimization plugins, they tend to only make things worse. Pre generate your map, but this has the downside of terrain being stuck through generation changes like 1.18.

    All you need -
  • Optimise explosions HELP
  • [bedrock] help finding a plugin
    This isn't a java edition subreddit. Its for all server owners. Anyways, i would recommend just using PaperMC(java edition software) wirh GeyserMC(java->bedrock translation plugin) to run a bedrock server because of the plugins and also the fact that majority of bedrock server projects are basically abandoned or aren't great. Then you can find a factions plugin made for java and use it for your bedrock/java server
  • Server is running max memory (12gb for 4 players!)
    Like many other people said you should switch to paper. Its a drop in replacement for paper supporting all existing plugins of spigot since is a fork of spigot. Paper provides various preformance improvements, bug patches, xray, and many other advantages.
  • Hosting a server help | 2021-10-01
    It's pretty simple: either use a batch or shell file, or do it from the terminal. The contents should include the memory allocation, and the server jar. I highly recommend using Paper for lag reduction, but if ur farms keep on breaking, then Fabric + Lithium + Starlight + Krypton will definitely be the next option

    Grab the server jar of choice (Using Paper in this case)
  • Whats the best survival server to play with friends on Java? | 2021-09-22

  • io.netty Error in Custom Server | 2021-09-18
    more than likely an issue with vanilla 1.17.1. i see a lot of these types of posts especially with vanilla servers or modded. Try switching to Paper and see if that helps
