/pex import file not working

  1. I'm currently trying to link PEx to a mysql database and under phpmyadmin I've created the user account and the permissionsex database name and changed PEx to make the database to sql under the config file of the server. In the server console, pex says that it has successfully created a connection to the SQL database. When I try to sync the server to the sql database using pex import file under console, I get this error message.
    The console also tells me that the server permissions file is empty and in the server there are no user groups what so ever.
  2. Check under player and Helper-Vip to fix this issue, as there is a Config error, Either something isnt lined up right or you are missing a Colin or something

    Yea, your PEX perms file is hosed up. Post it on PasteBin and give us the link and someone can fix it for you if you can't figure it out.
  4. Have you considered using a more up-to-date plugin? Like Luckperms or alternatives?

    I agree, he really should be using LP as it's more advanced but this issue isn't due to it being outdated.
  6. PEX has a lot of issues that have not been addressed because it's inactive. Some of which i believe are security related in the nature of being privilege escalation exploits. Luck Perms which has been referenced here by multiple people gives a nice GUI to setup permissions. It would be worth your time to just set them up fresh from LP. https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/luckperms-an-advanced-permissions-plugin.28140/
