How to Modify Spigot Configuration (spigot.yml)

The Spigot Config file has many options and settings that can be modified to change the behavior of your Minecraft server running the Spigot server type. You may directly modify the spigot.yml file that's in your server directory. However, through Multicraft, this can easily be found under the Config Files menu, labeled as Spigot Config. The file works in conjunction with the Bukkit configuration file (bukkit.yml).

Note: You should only change configuration options for your server if you know what you are doing. If you are not sure what something does, it is best to leave it at its default setting.

 In this guide, we will discuss how to configure your server's Spigot Config and some of the configuration options available to you in the server control panel, without needing to directly and manually modify the spigot.yml file!


HOW TO ACCESS THE SPIGOT CONFIG IN MULTICRAFT

  1. On your Multicraft Panel (https://mc.shockbyte.com/), navigate to Files > Config Files.

  2. On the Config Files page, select Spigot Config

Now that you have accessed your server's Spigot Config, you may modify this to your preference. The following table describes some of the options you can customize. You can find the complete list and detailed discussion on all configurable options in the SpigotMC Wiki.
