EDIT: I am assuming you are having difficulties with the setup, not so much the plugins and permissions and all that.

What kind of server are you trying to set up? Honestly, if you have no idea, I would recommend:

Regular classic survival: Spigot, with a few anti-cheat plugins
Private survival server: Vanilla. (see my previous post) Don't forget to use whitelist!
Minigame server: Spigot

If you are not trying to set up a vanilla server, but instead a Spigot server, I will try to explain how to do so.

For a guide, go to
or ... got_server

First, what you will need is the BuildTools.jar file. You can get it and learn more information about using it at

You have to run buildtools in a special way. If you have it, search on your computer for Git Bash. If you don't have it, download it at

When you run Git Bash, you have to locate your downloaded file with cd Downloads You can also type cd .. to go back. When you are in the same folder as the jar file, type java -jar BuildTools.jar After a little while, on screen it will show you where the spigot file is. Move this to any folder, and just create a batch file something like:

@echo off
java -jar Spigot.jar

Please note that Spigot.jar can be actually named anything. You will have to accept the EULA, and install some plugins.

Hope I helped!

Delete everything, find a person who's good with servers/a guide, and start anew.

No sense fixing what's entirely broken if it's cheaper to start anew.

And if you do find someone good with servers, do see if they know what they are talking about - there's a good number of folks here who say they know things about servers and setup, but are lacking fundamental concepts >.>

xXCaptainSonicXxYes, setting up a server is very complicated, but do try to follow along this website: ... p_a_server

I'd try to link a guide that isn't for vanilla servers - if the OP was confused by something with plugins, he won't get much at all with the basic server type unless he likes the idea of 100% literal vanilla (not the best idea) or being command block dependent (unless the OP has a secret skill with command blocks that isn't showing...).

1 - Are you "home-hosting" this server?
2 - Have you paid a hosting company to host the server for you?

all you need is 1 server jar, and some way to start it
