Hi! I have had a vanilla MC server for years we rent through Gameservers. I have full FTP Access and I know my way around a little as I use to use bukkit, I would like to add and use Spigot to start to improve performance. My host told us I have to do this manually as MCmyadmin will not do it, but I'm lost on what file names I need and what I need to rename or delete etc. Might some one be able to give me step-by-step process of how to do what and where to put the file. I'm also lost on the several files I see? I take it build tools is not for this, and I dont see something called spigot to download. I dont want to host myself, which is what a lot of the directions I found are for. We did have spigot on at one point and I remember being able to control chunks loading and food consumption, I would like to do have that again, and I can read up on that and figure that out. A minecraft.server.jar and a spigot.jar are already in my Minecraft directory. I am running 1.9.2 and I believe out host is Linux based. If I can figure out exactly what to download, what I need to rename, add, delete etc, and then what to do from there, I would greatly appreciate it. Sorry for the newbie questions, I just want to learn and try this THANKS for any help! This what they told us to do, but I'm lost on where, how, etc: That is correct except that the auto installer on McMyAdmin does not work, therefore, hitting the install button will not do anything at this time. You will have to install the latest version of Spigot manually by first downloading the latest version, change the name of the .jar file to Spigot.jar, stop your server, FTP into the "Minecraft" folder and then upload that into the folder. Then restart your server and it should be running the latest version of Spigot that you just manually installed.
