How to Create a Minecraft Server with Bukkit or Spigot

Hello, this is a quick guide on how to start up a Minecraft server use Bukkit or Spigot.
These server jars allow you to extend minecraft with plugins. This is how the servers you play on add things like permissions, chat colors, ranks, kits, etc.
Plugins are found for download at and

This guide will teach you how to setup the server on a local machine. It will not teach you how to setup your network (assuming you are behind a firewall) to allow others to connect to it. Depending on the network setup on the computer you install on, people may or may not be able to connect to your server.

== Prerequisite ==
You need to have Java installed on the computer where you are going to run the server.

== Step 1 ==
You need to get the Server Jar.
You can download
craftbukkit.jar at
Spigot.jar at

Either will work for running your server.

== Step 2 ==
Make a folder or directory on your computer and put the jar in it.

== Step 3 ==
Create a Batch or Shell script to run your jar.
Note: you could just type the command into the command line, but doing that over and over gets annoying quick. Its better to make the run script upfront.

Windows: Create a new text file called run.bat
You will need to know where the java.exe is on your computer. On mine, its on the D: drive in the Javabin folder.

"D:Javabinjava.exe" -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar spigot.jar

Linux: Create a new text file called and make sure to grant it execute permissions.

java -jar -Xmx2000M -XX:MaxPermSize=256M -server spigot.jar nogui
== Step 4 ==
Run the script, whether its you Batch file or shell script.

After you run the script, your folder will look like this:
Run for the First Time

And at this moment you have a working server!
You will probably want to adjust the and the bukkit.yml

You can add your character name to the ops.txt file if you want to automatically be op in game.
If you run a client on the same machine you will be able to connect to this server.
To connect to it from other machines, you will have to add the IP to the and perhaps adjust firewall settings.

How to Add Shaders to 1.7.2 Client in Windows

First you need have Forge Installed.
Download the Install for your computer from here:
Forge Mod

The Windows Installer is: Forge Windows Installer
For Windows, just run the installer and it will add a new Version to your client.

When you relaunch your client, you will need to change your profile to use: 1.7.2-Forge10.12.0.1019

Now for the Shaders.
There are two parts to this, first you need to ShadersModCore.
ShadersModCore Forum Post

You put that into the Mods folder of your .minecraft folder.
Start your minecraft client, so it loads and creates its folders.

Then you need the actual shaders:
Here is the link to SonicEther’s Shaders – Sonic Ether’s Shaders

This file goes into the ShaderPacks folder under .minecraft in your AppData folder.

That should be it for the install, now start your minecraft client again.
