How to update your Minecraft server to 1.7.2!

1.7.2 has been released to the launcher! If you’re running CraftBukkit with plugins, we recommend waiting until they release a stable build before updating. If you don’t mind playing vanilla for a while, or you’re already running a vanilla Minecraft server, here’s how you can update:

  1. Stop your server
  2. Delete the jar/minecraft_server.jar file from your server via FTP. (Be sure you don’t have a custom JAR name, and be sure you’re deleting from the “jar” folder)
  3. Make sure your JAR file in Multicraft is set to the correct version; this should be “Minecraft 1.7.2 (Vanilla)”
  4. Start your server!

If you’re running CraftBukkit 1.6.4 and need to downgrade your client to play, follow these steps:

  1. Open Minecraft
  2. Click ‘Edit Profile’ in the launcher
  3. Select ‘Release 1.6.4 in the ‘Use Version’ section
  4. Save and login!

Update – CraftBukkit 1.7.2 dev has been released! This is a very unstable and unsupported build. We recommend staying on vanilla 1.7.2, Spigot 1.7, or CraftBukkit 1.6.4 in the meantime. If you want to test the new 1.7.2 dev build out, here’s how.

  1. Login to Multicraft
  2. Download StructureSaver
  3. Upload the StructureSaver jar file to your plugins folder via FTP
  4. Restart your server
  5. Run “/save-structures” (in-game) or “save-structures” from the console
  6. Go back to your Multicraft server page
  7. Select “CraftBukkit 1.7.2” from the JAR File dropdown menu
  8. Save (at the bottom)
  9. Restart your server

If you don’t care about structures being saved, you can skip steps 2 – 5.

If you run into any trouble, just submit a support ticket and we’ll get you set up.
