How to install Bukkit Plugins on a Tekkit Server (Step by Step)

Recommended Posts

Alright so you have this AWESOME idea in your tekkit server but you dont want to do block by block building and would much rather used World Edit to build it faster?

Are there pesky kids greifing your server because you have no protection plugin to prevent from breaking blocks?

Well look absolutely NO FURTHER! I have the solution to the good old question of how to get Bukkit plugins on a Tekkit server.

 

 

  • Step 1:

Make a copy of your entire server folder.

 

 

 

  • Step 2:

Go to this link:
http://files.minecraftforge.net/Cauldron/

find the version that your tekkit server is running (currently mine is 1.6.4 so you, most likely, will want 1.6.4 also) but if you dont know the version of your tekkit server, open your server file and in the root there will be a .jar that says "minecraft.server.<version #>"

The download that you want to click on is called "installer".

Once that downloads, (the file name should be something like "cauldron-1.6.4-1.965.21.89-installer.jar") open it by double clicking it (its a jar file, but it can still be run as an executable)

 

 

 

  • Step 3:

So a nice little window will open that says "Minecraft Forge" and there should be 3 options to choose from:

  1. Install Client

     2. Install Server

 

     3. Extract

******(right now, go onto your desktop and make a new folder. name it whatever you want)*******

Once you have made the new folder, Select "Install Server" and then below that is a bar with a location to your appdata folder. You dont want to extract it to your appdata folder, just extract it to the folder that you just created. So to change that go to the right of the location bar and click on the "..." button and map to your "desktop" and then find that new folder you made and click that, now in the lower right of your windows explorer window click "open".

So now the location bar that originally had appdata in it, should say something along the lines of "c:usersyourusernameDesktopwhatever the name of the folder you made is" so now click on "ok" in that window.

That minecraft forge window should close and a new smaller window should pop up saying "downloading libraries" with a green status bar below it. Once that completes, it will close and a new dialog box will say "Successuflly downloaded minecraft server, downloaded 19 libararies and installed cauldron"

 

 

 

  • Step 4:

So now if you go to your Desktop and find that new folder. Inside that new folder should be 2 .jar files and a folder named "libraries"

Now go to where your copy of your tekkit server folder is and open it. Inside that should be a folder named "libraries" too.

Put both the new folder with the 3 files in it and the copy of your tekkit server folder side by side.

In the new folder open up the "libraries" folder. There should be 8 other folders with the names of:


com

commons-lang

javax

jline

lzma

mysql

net

org


Now keep that open and go to your tekkit server copy folder and open up the "libraries" folder inside of that. You should only see 3 folders with the following names:


lzma

net

org


If you see that then you are good to go with the next part!

 

 

 

  • Step 5:

Go back to the New Folder (were gonna call it that from now on) with the 8 folders in the "Libraries" file.

Now take the folder "com" and drag it straight over to your copied tekkit server folder.

Do the same thing with: commons-lang, javax, jline, and mysql

So now if you look in the New Folder you should only see 3 files:


lzma

net

org


and if you look over to the copied tekkit server folder you should see:


com

commons-lang

javax

jline

lzma

mysql

net

org


If you have exactly that, you are doing GREAT! Alright lets keep going, almost done!

So now open up "net" in both New Folder and Copied Tekkit Server folder. Notice how New folder has more files than Coped Tekkit Server folder does?

Take the files "md-5" and "sourceforge" from New folder and drag them into Copied Tekkit Server folder's "net". So now the only files in New Folder are "minecraft" and "sf" while Copied Tekkit server has 4 files.

Now open up "sf" in both windows. The New Folder should have one more file (trove4j) than Copied Tekkit Server folder. Drag "trove4j" to Copied Tekkit server folder. Good now go back to "libraries" in both windows.

Now "org" is different too so do what we did previously. Take the files that are NOT in Copied Tekkit Server folder and drag them TO Copied Tekkit Server folder. (You should be left with "ow2" and "scalalang" in New Folder)

That should be all that you have to do with the dragging files from one folder to another.

GOOD JOB YOURE MAKING AMAZING PROGRESS! DONT STOP NOW! YOUR ARE ALMOST THERE!

 

 

 

  • Final step:

Go back to the root of both New Folder and Copied Tekkit server folder.

From the New Folder, take the file "cauldron-1.6.4-1.965.21.89-server.jar" and drag it straight over to Copied Tekkit server folder.

So now you are all done with the New folder. You can close that window but keep Copied Tekkit server folder open.

So you see the "tekkit.jar" file? Delete that. Now take "cauldron-1.6.4-1.965.21.89-server.jar" and right click it. Go to "rename" and rename it "tekkit" (the .jar is automatic)

So now if you go to the "launch.bat" and run it, the server should start up and create a "plugins" folder with another folder in it that says "pluginmetrics" within it. stop the server once its done setting up.

SO THERE YOU GO! YOU DID IT! YOU CAN ADD AS MANY BUKKIT PLUGINS AS YOU WANT TO YOUR TEKKIT SERVER!!!! next step, installing plugins (this is an easy step)

Alright so now go to google or bing or yahoo or whatever you use. Lets first test to make sure this is all working correctly. So type in the search bar "Essentials files Bukkit" hit enter (or search) and it should be the first link (http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/essentials/files/) now since you are running minecraft server 1.6.4 you have to find the Essential version that matches that. So the fifth column over (Game Version is the title) look for "CB 1.6.4-R2.0" and go to your left and click on the file name of " Essentials-2.12.2" (this is a direct link).

That will take you to a new page and in the upper right hand corner should be "Download" (this is a safe, direct link for the download) you will have to extract the file so you need some sort of zip or rar extractor (i use winrar, its the best in my opinion) and once you extract it, drag over "essentials.jar" (JUST essentials.jar for now, you can add the others later) to your "plugins" folder in you Copied Tekkit Server Folder. Now go to run.bat and let it all setup. Go into your server and if once you connect you should see "no new mail" in yellow text in the lower left of your screen (where in game chat usually shows) that means Essentials in working! Try out a few commands, do /help essentials for all the commands.


Alright well, that wraps  up that! Thank you so much for checking this out! if you have any questions, concerns, help, problems or anything, please leave a comment and i will reply within a day! Enjoy your Bukkit+Tekkit server!

While I have no immediate use for this, zero replies make me sad. Here, have a like.

I really enjoy when somebody else besides me is writing guides for things. In actual writing, and not burying all that useful information in abysmal Youtube videos. Yay!  =(^o^)=

I am just curious, did it work for you Huynh?

And Curunir, in addition to this, im gonna make a youtube video (some people are visual learners,me included) and i know this has been a HUGE problem for people in the past and seriously, getting the answer straight forward from someone is extremely hard for some reason. So once i figured it out, i decided everyone should know because its useful.

Youtube tutorials are not about visual learning, but about spoonfeeding things to the learning-disabled and the illiterate. Which is alright, because these people should not be left behind, either.

I prefer text based tutorials that actually has good formatting. this is an example of bad formatting, don't believe me? Step 1 and 2 are larger, step 3 onward is same size as everything else, folder lists are not even listed in any shape or form for a numbered, bulleted, or otherwise -list. The mention of renaming and saying the ".jar" is automatic can also be false considering not everyone hides files extension (of which btw, I disagree with hiding them at all regardless of expertise level) thus when they rename a file, they can inadvertently rename it with no extension causing it not to be a known file type at all and thus the instructions fail. The line mentioning "Good job" is unnecessarily all capitalized. There's no reason for this, it looks like someone doesn't know how to handle when to capitalize or when not to, and often is just plain over-"yelling." There's claims of winrar being the best, which can highly be debated. A point of a guide is not to shove ideologies of software onto other people, but rather to make recommendations, the line would be better phrased, "I personally use WinRAR." Of which it indicates nothing of opinion but rather what was used in this process as a preferred application. Let me see. Is there anything else that really strikes me in this guide that is unnecessary? Why, yes, there is. The entire first three "paragraphs." They're already here of their own volition and don't need a reason to read a guide about installing Bukkit and plugins. There are also other countless lines that distract from the point of the actual guide and thus increase the time it takes to actually get to the important information. While Curunir mentions that he preferred this since it isn't covered over YouTube nonsense, it is covered in text nonsense. So, I cannot recommend this guide to anyone in the current state it is in.

 

Edit: Re-read my post, removed a small bit of it in regards to WinRAR due to an accidental opinion being put into there.

You should not view it as an attack, asede. Just criticism that can help you doing better at what you are already doing well. I would not have worded it so harshly, but you could improve the text a lot if you took that criticism to heart.

Sadly, most criticism is far too harsh these days, especially on the internet. To the point where it is only ever felt as an attack, not a useful thing. I would appreciate it if you took some time to edit and improve your post, instead of just taking it to Youtube. If you learn to structure your thoughts in text-guides as Kalbintion suggested, it would ultimately also improve the quality of videos that you produce.

asede, I do appreciate what you were attempting to do, trust me. I would rather not be alone in typing up guides and Curunir already expressed the same bit of feeling. This said, the criticism is designed to improve what you have already and to cut essentially crap out and make it more presentable. Guides are written for factual information and to be formatted in a convenient way. There's been far too many guides on YouTube, textual, or with other means that go about it the same way you had written yours, and it just makes the guide worse overall. Every time I've attempted to provide criticism, I have gotten nothing but excuses back about why something is the way it is. I don't provide criticism to hear excuses, I provided it to better the guide or attempt at improving the information available. I do not care when, how, or why it was written but rather that the information is bettered. Now, whether or not the author of a guide wants to take my criticism, that is up to them.
