Customize Your World: A Step-by-Step Guide to Adding Plugins on Aternos
Accessing Your Aternos Server:
First, log in to your Aternos account and navigate to the Aternos dashboard. Locate your server from the server list and ensure that it is running.
Stop Your Server:
Before adding plugins, it is important to stop your server to prevent any issues during the installation process. Click on the "Stop" button on the Aternos dashboard to halt your server's operation.
Next, it's time to choose the plugins you want to add to your server. Aternos supports a wide range of plugins, providing countless options for customization. Explore reliable plugin sources such as Spigot, Bukkit, or the official Minecraft plugin directory to find plugins that align with your desired features and gameplay enhancements.
Once you have selected your desired plugins, navigate to the respective plugin websites and locate the download links for the plugin files. Ensure that you choose versions compatible with your server's Minecraft version.
Accessing Your Server Files:
On the Aternos dashboard, locate the "File Management" section and click on it. This will grant you access to your server files, allowing you to upload and manage plugins.
Within the File Management section, navigate to the "plugins" folder. Click on the folder to open it, and then click on the "Upload" button to upload your downloaded plugin files. Make sure to upload the plugin files directly into the "plugins" folder.
Starting Your Server:
Once you have uploaded the plugins, return to the Aternos dashboard and click on the "Start" button to initiate your server. The plugins will be loaded during the server startup process.
After your server has started, you may need to configure certain plugins to customize their behavior. Plugin configurations can typically be found in the "plugins" folder or within the server console. Refer to the documentation or instructions provided with each plugin for guidance on how to configure them according to your preferences.
Testing and Troubleshooting:
With the plugins successfully added and configured, it's time to test them in your Minecraft world. Join your server and ensure that the plugins are functioning as expected. If you encounter any issues or conflicts, refer to the plugin's documentation or seek support from the plugin developer or community.
