Spigot Server - Mac

  1. I've made multiple servers on spigot for macs, but for some reason, my current mac won't let me make one. The error message goes as follows:

    My Java is fully updated, and I understand that a common issue is the server running 6 instead of 8, but I've only ever installed 8 on this mac. It appears to be the wrong version of bukkit (I'm using spigot but whatever) yet I downloaded the newest version.
  2. Uninstall your java version fully then reinstall it just to be sure.
  3. I uninstalled and reinstalled it and it says the same thing.

    Install the java 8 JDK, not the JRE (JDK actually installs itself on the system properly, JRE only really handles stuff launched by the desktop)
  5. It worked! Thank you so much!
