This guide will show you how to properly set up and use NuVotifier plugin.
🌲 Before We Set Up NuVotifier 🌲
Before we start with the installation of the plugin, we will need other three plugins to be installed on the server beside NuVotifier :
VotingPlugin - which is a voting listener plugin
EssentialsX - you need an economy plugin as the one mentioned above (EssentialsX).
⚠ NOTE ⚠: For your server to be able to use plugins it needs to run one of the following three server types: CraftBukkit/ Spigot/ PaperSpigot. Here is our guide explaining about plugins and how to install them.
🔌 NuVotifier: How to Set Up and Configure 🔌
What is NuVotifier?
NuVotifier is a plugin that lets your users vote for your server on various sites for items/money in-game.
You can find more information about NuVotifier on its official page here.
⚠ NOTE ⚠: This plugin is working for the older version but also for the newer ones too as it supports Minecraft version between 1.7 and 1.16.
How to Set Up NuVotifier
To install NuVotifier into your server you will have to download the plugin here.
Then use Filezilla to upload it to your plugins folder of your Minecraft Server. Here is our guide for using Filezilla.
After uploading the plugin to the server you will have to restart the server for it to load the plugin.
⚠ NOTE ⚠: You can use the /plugins command to see the active plugins from your server.
How to Configure NuVotifier
To configure NuVotifier you need to do the following:
Open your Multicraft server page.
Click on `Files->FTP files access and log in.
Then you will be directed to your server files. Click on the folder called plugins and then on the one called Votifier.
Open config.yml file and inside it, you need to change the port value from 8192 to any number between 8000 and 9999, click on Save and then restart the server. Those are all ports that we provide for setting up plugins.
⚠ NOTE ⚠: If you set a port value between 8000-9999 and it is still not working, just change it with any other value between 8000 and 9999 as mentioned and it will work. Chances that another player set the same port as you on the same node you are running are slim, but if this happens just replace the port value with any other between the mentioned limits.
⚠ NOTE ⚠: If the port you have chosen is taken, you will find at the server restart a message in the console that will tell you that NuVotifier is not working properly.
Go to a voting service, such as http://minecraft-mp.com, and set up your server.
- The Votifier address is your server address, and the port is what you have in your NuVotifier configuration.
- The public key can be attained by going into /plugins/votifier/rsa/public.key . Open that file in your multicraft FTP Browser and copy the whole contents of public.key . Paste it in the public key field on the website.
Make Sure NuVotifier Is Set Up Properly
Make sure NuVotifier is set up correctly by following the test here.
Send a Test vote. If this does not work then go into Votifier, set another port between 8000 and 9999, then put the new port on the vote site, and try a test vote again. If it doesn't work, repeat trying different port numbers until it does work, and then everything should be set up.
🔩 What Is the VotingPlugin and How to Set Up 🔩
The VoingPlugin or the voting listener plugin, meaning an additional plugin that is triggered by NuVotifier once a vote is received, will help you set the outcome of a vote. For example, the voting listener plugin will set the rewards each player receives after he votes your server. This plugin will set the commands that will be executed once a vote is received.
This plugin is in general easy to configure, and you can do it yourself. To edit it you will have to:
Go to your Multicraft server page.
Click on Files->FTP files access and log in.
Then you will be directed to your server files. Click on the folder called plugins and then on the one called VotingPlugin.
Open config.yml file and edit it to your liking, then click on Save and restart the server.
⚠ NOTE ⚠: The plugin has already some rewards set, so just change it to your liking.
