Customization is one of the best things about Minecraft, there are lots of gamemodes and minigames to play, it’s just full of fun! How is this possible? Plugins! We’ll show you how to add plugins to your new server!
First, you have to be sure that your server is running on Spigot, CraftBukkit or PaperSpigot! Remember that single vanilla can't run plugins.
To change the server type just log in in your server's control panel that at Multicraft.
Your Multicraft Credentials were emailed you shortly after purchase, so search for an email titled "Your Minecraft Server Details".
You can also read our Change your server version article that will help you on switching your server type as well.
How to get Plugins
You can get the plugins in your Multicraft.
You just need to go to:
Bukkit Plugins (Plugin List) option.
Once the plugin is installed you need just to start/restart the server.
Installing Plugins (Using external websites)
You can also download plugins from some websites such Bukkit or Spigot and then upload the plugins using your FTP File Access to your server's /plugins directory.
💭 If you don't know what is FTP File Access or how to use it, please read our How to: Access Your Minecraft Server Files Via FTP article.
