From time to time, the EMSM receives some updates. Especially the server database and the server download urls. So how can you update the EMSM?

Note

Some servers need to be built or don’t work out the box, which may cause problems with the privilege downgrade of EMSM. In those cases you can either replace the server jars in the server directory manually or you may try to execute the update command directly as minecraft user:

$su -i --shell=/bin/bash minecraft$ minecraft -s "spigot latest" server --update

1. Edit the server.conf configuration file:
[vanilla 1.8]

1. Update the server with the server plugin:
