Votifier

What is Votifier?

Votifier is a Bukkit plugin whose purpose is to get notified (a.k.a. votified) when a vote is made on a Minecraft server list for the server. Votifier creates a lightweight server that waits for connections by a Minecraft server list and uses a simple protocol to get information about that vote. Votifier is and always will be open-source.

Is it secure?

The Votifier plugin employs 2048-bit RSA encryption to ensure that nobody can spoof a vote packet. When Votifier is run for the first time it will generate a unique key pair only for your server to use. When you register Votifier with a supporting server list it will ask for your public RSA key, so it can encrypt vote packets before sending them to you. The developers of Votifier self were unable to hack the plugin themselfs.

What does this plugin?

Votifier has a vote listener system where listeners are notified when Votifier receives a vote notification. Sort of like the Bukkit plugin system itself. Each of these listeners can carry out their own task (rewarding the player via iConomy, etc.) in response to the vote.


To install a vote listener, simply put it in Votifier's listeners folder. Note that you must run Votifier first before this folder is made. For having a log of votes, the FlatfileVoteListener can be used. This listener logs votes to a text file located at plugins/Votifier/votes.log

Essentials

What is Essentials?

Essentials offers over 100 commands useful on just about every Minecraft server, from kits to mob spawning.

Essentials is the de-facto standard set up for Minecraft servers. From small servers running on on desktops, VPS hosts and dedicated Minecraft services. Essentials is one of the most popular Bukkit plugins ever made, and runs on everything from small one person home hosted Windows servers, to huge 500+ slot dedicated Linux community servers.

Commands

Essentials is made up of multiple components, you must place each jar that you intend to use in your Minecraft/Bukkit plugins folder. You will generally not need/want all components, ignore the commands and permissions from the modules you haven't installed. If you aren't sure what each component does, first check the breakdown page. Permissions aren't automatically inclusive, you will need to give both 'essentials.spawnmob' and either 'essentials.spawnmob.wolf' or 'essentials.spawnmob.*' to allow use of "/spawnmob wolf".

Essentials - Groupmanager

What is Groupmanager?

Groupmanager is an implementation of permissions. It allows you to set up permissions for groups, and add users to these groups. The result is you can have multiple tiers which have access to specified commands. This is useful for most Minecraft servers, as it lets you create a custom caste system. Without it, you may struggle to control the extent of server control your users have.

The basic groups.

Groupmanager allows you to effectively manage users' permissions by letting you create as many different groups and sub-groups as you could possibly need. This configuration can be as simple or as complicated as you make it. The most traditional system (shown below) uses group inheritance, starting with new players at the top, and owners on the bottom. On smaller servers you might end up merging the moderator and admin rolls, but most people will have different opinions when it comes to which powers the admin should receive access to, and which powers moderators should receive as well.

Newbie

The newbie group contains the very basic permission nodes, and should be safe to give all newly joined players upon login.

Player

The player group covers all the commands that established players can use. This usually includes commands which involve the economy, basic teleportation, and other basic commands.

Moderator/Admin

These two groups can be merged or split even further based on your preference. Typically the lowest moderator rank has access to kick users, and jail a user, while higher ranks gain access to IP ban players, turn invisible, and spawn creative mode items.

Owner

The owner group usually has access to all permissions/commands, and is usually the only one with commands that control plugins, define groups, and ability to shut down/restart the server.

Installing this plugin.

The install process for Group Manager is very simple.

Step 1
Safely stop your server

Go to your control panel and stop your server so you can safely place the plugin in your server.

Step 2
Install the GroupManager plugin

Go to your file manager and enter the folder "Plugins", and copy the Groupmanager plugin in the folder. (EssentialsGroupManager.jar/GroupManager.jar)

Step 3
Restart your server

After that start your server again so it can create the config file of the plugin. To check if the plugin is loaded to your minecraft server do "/pl" and see if Groupmanager is in the list.

Step 4
Modify config.yml file

Go to your file manager and enter the folder "Plugins", open the Groumanger folder where you can set up/modify the config file.

Step 5
Restart your server

Restart the server (To apply updated versions of GroupManager's configuration file ingame, type /manload). Every time you change the cofiguration you have to restart your server to apply the changes to your server.
