How to Modify Bukkit Configuration (bukkit.yml)

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

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 Bukkit Config and some of the configuration options available to you in the server control panel, without needing to directly and manually modify the bukkit.yml file!


HOW TO ACCESS THE BUKKIT CONFIG IN MULTICRAFT

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