Spigot is the most widely-used modded Minecraft server software in the world. It powers many of the top Minecraft server networks around to ensure they can cope with their huge player base and ensure the satisfaction of their players. Spigot works by reducing and eliminating many causes of lag, as well as adding in handy features and settings that help make your job of server administration easier. The end result is that your server becomes a cut above the competition and you no longer have to spend time tearing your hair out over players complaining of lag.
It must also be added that Spigot is perfect for smaller servers too, especially due to features like cutting idle CPU usage, saving power, and other resources when only a few or no players are online.
How do I install Spigot?
Installation Using the Nitrado-Webinterface
In the web interface of the Minecraft server, the Change version entry is located in the Minecraft Bukkit on the left side of the screen. All Minecraft versions can be selected. Click on the Install button to install the version.
If you would like a more up-to-date version of Spigot or want it to be offered in the web interface, you can create it yourself (compile). A tutorial is available in the Spigot Wiki, in English at: https://www.spigotmc.org/wiki/spigot-installation/ After a successful compilation (creation) of the Spigot.jar, you simply rename it to Craftbukkit.jar and upload it to your Minecraft server via FTP or in the file browser of the web interface. Before of course stop the server, then upload / replace with the current craftbukkit.jar and then restart the server.
How Do I install Spigot Plugins?
The installation of plugins is identical to the installation of Bukkit plugins. First, they must be downloaded from the Bukkit Dev-Center (dev.bukkit.org) or the Spigot-Plugin-Center (see below). If it is a .zip file, you must first unpack it, upload the .jar files (and, if available, the config folders) to the / plugins folder of the server by FTP. If necessary, the configuration files (configs) have to be adapted (eg MySQL settings). The plugins are activated after a restart of the server.
