After a long hiatus from Minecraft, I decided to attempt to "reboot" my server so to speak. One of my good friends, Ian, sent me a tweet:
@noahw i've been playing a lot of minecraft cause unemployment and let me tell you, i have such ideas if/when server goes back up— Gristle McThornBody (@ebobenson) January 28, 2015
Which sparked my interest to get our old server back up and running. I was sad to see that CraftBukkit (Which is the backbone of Minecraft I used to add some additional features to our server) had been sent a DMCA takedown request
It seems lucky that another project called Spigot not only took the place of Bukkit, but is supposedly a little bit faster. My hope is that in using Spigot and the latest version of Java 7 (rather than 8), our server can continue to run and stay stable, which was something I was having a hard time accomplishing using vanilla Minecraft server and Java 8.
