    EssentialsX supports SpigotMC's "CraftBukkit" and Spigot server software, as well as Paper. We recommend using the latest version of Paper, as it includes several performance enhancements over Spigot and is fully compatible with Spigot plugins. Specifically, EssentialsX is designed to work on the following Minecraft versions:
    • ⚠️ 1.8.8, 1.9.4, 1.10.2, 1.11.2, 1.12.2 and 1.13.2 - these versions are still supported, but are not a priority for us.
    • ✅ 1.14.4 and 1.15.2 - these versions are regularly tested against.
    NOTE: GeoIP changes
    As you may have noticed, older versions of EssentialsX GeoIP will cause errors and no longer keep their databases up-to-date. You'll need to follow the new setup guide to get GeoIP up and running again.

    Upgrading to 2.17.2
    Except for GeoIP, EssentialsX 2.17.2 does not require any config changes from 2.17.1. However, 2.17.2 adds some new settings to config.yml - to use these, you can either generate a new config.yml or add them to your existing config.

    Upgrading from older versions of EssentialsX? See the previous update changelogs.
