Solved Error Starting Server

Discussion in 'Spigot Help' started by mekEE, Mar 27, 2020.

  1. Hi, I need help with my server. I had it running on 1.15.2. I've installed ViaVersion and switched to 1.12.2, but when I try to launch my server now, it doesn't start.
    Sorry If I split a line, because I copied this straight from command prompt and it won't let me edit it. Also I downloaded Spigot from Here's the error. Thank you.
    Code (Text):

  2. Dont try to get spigot from anywhere other than Spigot's BuildTools.jar
    Read up on it in the link here.
  3. I'm trying BuildTools, it seems to take a long time for me.
    Edit: It was successful! I have CraftBukkit and Spigot, I'll copy the files and try now.
    Edit 2: The same error appears. )=
    Edit 3: Solved! =D I removed the -nogui flag from startup which was unnecessary. More info here.
