But due to how some panels work, this may cause unneeded spam in your console and can make logs files bigger and harder to manually process.

- The ability to change your start-up flags (or directly insert a file into the jar archive)
- The file found here saved as a .xml file
Same folder(top)Once you have the above file saved as something (we will refer to it as log4j2.xml, substitute your name if you named it differently), upload it or place it in the same folder as your spigot.jar.

Different folder(top)If you cant access your jar folder, you can place it elsewhere if you know how to directly access it. For example, if you put it in your plugins folder you can access it by changing the start-up flag to
