Part 1-Making the serverIn this tutorial I will be showing you how to make a bukkit hamachi server and add plugins. Please note that this will only work for windows.

1. You need:
-Craftbukkit (latestbuild) http://dl.bukkit.org/
-LogMeInHamachi (Unmanged) https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi/download.aspx
Once you have those downloaded put both on your desktop

2. Right click your desktop and click new folder. Name the folder 'Server.' Put the craftbukkit jar into the 'Server' folder Do NOT put in the Hamachi

3. If your craftbukkit has any other letters/numbers after the name craftbukkit (And it most likely will), rename it to just 'craftbukkit' (Do not put the '')

4. Double-click on the craftbukkit jar, and wait about 1 minute. After a minute all the folders you will should be generated.

5. To continue you must log off or restart your computer. This is to close the .jar file that is running. You can also force quit all java applications, but this is not recommended.

6. Log back on to your computer

7. Open up your LogMeInHamachi. Click 'create network'. Make a network named something like Mcserver-(ServerName) then add a password (Do not skip adding passwords, you must have one).

8. Now open up the 'Server' folder and create a textfile

9. Open the textfile and type in;


java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true
PAUSE


Note: This will only work on WINDOWS computers, if you have a mac or Linux tell me in the comments and I'll tell you what to type.


10. Now click 'Save As' then name it RUN.bat or Starter.bat you must do one or the other if one doesn't work, try the other name.

11. Now go back to your 'Server' folder and find the textfile saved as a properties file. Open it and chose the options that you want for your server by changing the true to false or false to true. Once your done editing that keep it open and re-open hamachi. Above your hamachi name there should be numbers(ex 5.31.135.34/) Copy all the numbers BEFORE the slash, not after it (Don't type in the slash). Paste the numbers into the IP section of the server properties.

9. Close and save the server properties then double-click the starter file (the textfile you saved as RUN.bat or starter.bat) Let all the words and numbers go till you see 'done' (This usually take about 30 seconds to 1 minute)

10. Congrats you now have a hamachi server, to stop the server simply type 'stop'

Part 2 getting plugins:

Now that you have a server you need plugins. almost all plugins can be installed the same way. I will be showing how to get Essentials plugin on your server but first, For those of you who don't know what Essentials is,
it's a great plugin for almost any kind of server. Essentials allows you to set spawn, make warps, set homes, and lots of other cool commands.

1. First you need to download Essentials: http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/essentials/
Click Essentials Core and let it download.

2. Open up your server folder and double click plugins folder

3. Open up your newly downloaded Essentials folder and highlight all the .jars and drag them into the plugins folder (you need to extract the folder first if it isn't already)

4. Restart your server. (type 'stop')

Now you have essentials installed!

Hope this tutorial helps! If you still need help let me know in the comments.

Not really sure why it's doing that. The only reason I can think of is you didn't save it.

If the server is working, and the plugin isn't, check to make sure it's the right version for your version of craftbukkit. Also make sure the the .jar of the essentails plugin are in the plugins folder, not in a folder inside of the plugins folder.

Try putting in this for the run.bat:

java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true

I think since 1.7 they changed the text so this should work.

Instead of resetting the whole computer, can't you just use task manager to shut it down?

You can yes, but stopping java using task manager has caused some problems in the past with some users, so I don't recommend it

You don't need to actually add mods into the Plugins folder to use a mod. Just have the mod and everybody who wants to join must have the mod, I recommend using Forge. :)

After typing in the

java -Xms1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true
PAUSE

Go to 'Save as' and name it RUN.bat
(This will only work on windows. Also make sure you created a new text file, not any other text file like jarte or rich text document.)

Matthewpopcorn

Okay, to make it so your friend can join you must have the I.P. in your 'Server Property's' file set to the I.P. of your Hamachi. This can be found by looking at all the numbers before the slash. If you have done this your friend can connect using the same I.P. as your Hamachi I.P. Also your friend must be on the network you set up for the server, or he won't be able to join.

No, he must be on your Hamachi network. To get him on it tell him to open Hamachi. Click network. Click Join network. Have him type in the network name you set, and have him type in the password you set. Then press done.
