Installing Minecraft plugins

Plugins allow you to extend the functionality of your Minecraft server and are very easy to install using the NiTROPanel Minecraft manager. All that is required is either Bukkit or Spigot.

  1. Plugins require you to either have Bukkit or Spigot installed on your server, so first we need to head over to the Modpacks tab in NiTROPanel. Once you are there, click the Bukkit logo and search for the version you want, click install and then head back over to the console page to restart it.

  2. Once the server is restarted and running again, head over to the plugin search. This tool allows you to search for any of the 7,000 plugins that are on the Bukkit database and install them with 1-click. Start by searching for a plugin and clicking view next to the one you desire. This will then load all the versions that are available, you will want to match the versions as closely with the version of Bukkit/Spigot that you installed onto you server. After installing the plugin, head back to the console page and restart.

  3. If the plugin is compatible with your Bukkit/Spigot version, then it should load and be usable from within the game (make sure you OP yourself too).
