Solved My jarfile was "invalid or corrupted"

  1. I downloaded the trade system plugin and my server did not even register it. When I clicked on the jar it said "invalid or corrupted jarfile."
     
  2. What trade system plugin, it didn't register it because there's an error.
    It's invalid or corrupt because that file is either
    1. Literally corrupt
    2. Unable to be run because it's not runnable.

    Run your server and give us your logs.
     
  3. You can't double click on plugin .jar files to execute, they are meant to be run by the spigot server that runs.

    Build your own Spigot .jar file with BuildTools.jar and use that.

    Re-download the plugin(s) you want to use, making sure it properly downloads. Put it in the plugins/ folder, and start the server.

    Keep an eye on the console, and see the real error if it still doesn't run.
