How to put a password on minecraft server.password minecraft server
Posted 24 August 2012 - 10:36 AM
I just created my own server with my router and all. Works fine .
I would like to protect it so that people that I don't know won't be able to come in, so I am looking for a plugin or maybe a mod that lets me choose a password for the server and until you put the password in you can not moove, kill, be killed...
I have looked around on the internet for password plugin but they are all for the 'offline" minecraft servers, the illegal kind I think,but I have the legal version the payed one so I would like to know If that exist for the official minecraft.exe servers.

I don't know, what you mean by "offline Minecraft servers", but Bukkit is a completely legal program. In fact, some of their developers have just recently be hired by Mojang themselves.

If I use Bukkit will that mean I will not use minecraft.exe? will it mean that I will change servers and loose my old saves ?
If it does, is there a way to acces my saves of the server ? Or does that not exist... I know you can do it in solo mode but I don't know about online.

While Bukkit does have a very slightly different way of storing worlds, it will automatically change your worlds accordingly without any data loss. Reverting the files back manually, should you ever want to use the normal Minecraft server application again, is also a matter of mere seconds.
Any of the settings, including server.properties, op list, whitelist, bans, etc. can also be carried over.

OK... I understand. Could you however send me a link where they show this? Or tell me yourself with easy steps to follow?

Put it where ever your server is currently. Set up a batch file as explained on the website. Perhaps, just to be save, make a backup of your files. Use the batch file to start the server. That's it. When you load an old world, Bukkit will automatically convert it, and it also uses the same files as your former server.
You can get plugins for Bukkit here: A link again.
Download the jar-file of a plugin and put it into the "plugins" folder, that the Bukkit server should have created upon the first start. Any additional steps to get a plugin working should be explained at its respective site.
Just a quick note: Bukkit seems for the moment only be available for Minecraft 1.3.1, instead of the most recent version 1.3.2. However, this shouldn't really affect people using a 1.3.2-client.

CD /D "%BINDIR%"
"%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar
But it does'nt work, when I launch it it says: "unable to acces jarfile craftbukkit.jar"
Can anybody help me.
Actually I have managed to fix this myself finally hah.
I changed the name to craftbukkit.jar but .jar adds itself so it was like putting craftbukkit.jar.jar so I took it off, didn't show the .jar so it was like just craftbukkit but when I laucnched .bat it worked!
