Download and install LuckPerms on the Minecraft server
To use authorization plugins like Luckperms (or any other plugin) in Minecraft, you first need to install a plugin manager on your server. Luckperms versions are available for the plugin managers Spigot and Sponge.
Spigot is used on servers that only have plugins and no mods. Spigot doesn’t work with Forge, which is required to use mods on a server. Spigot versions of Luckperms work on Minecraft versions 1.7 up to the most current version.
Sponge comes in two versions: “Vanilla Sponge” for add-on servers only and a version called “Sponge Forge” that works with Forge and Forge mods (Sponge Forge tips suggest that add-ons use mods are and so on Forge manages them as mods). Luckperms for Sponge Forge works in Minecraft from version 1.10.2 to 1.12.2.
Depending on the plugin manager installed, your server may need more RAM to handle additional required processes, which can increase the cost of running the server.
Step-by-step on how to install LuckPerms on the Minecraft server:
- Start Bukkit, Spigot, or Paper Server
- Download LuckPerms
- Install LuckPerms and restart your server
- Find the LuckPerms configuration files
- Use LuckPerms
1. Start Bukkit, Spigot, or Paper Server
The first step in installing a plugin on a server is to make sure you have a server that works with the plugin settings for Minecraft. You have a few options for doing this. You can start a Bukkit, Spigot, or Paper server, and all of them work with plugins. However, the truth is that we recommend a paper server as it is the most efficient and lag-free option. You can find our tutorial on setting up a paper server linked above. You can only install plugins on a server if it is one of these server types. Once you’ve configured your server, you’re ready to install LuckPerms!
2. Download LuckPerms
Before we can install LuckPerms, we need to download it. Fortunately, no matter what plugin you download, it’s super easy and the same. The official LuckPerms download page can be found by clicking the green “Download LuckPerms” button at the top of this page. Once you do this, you will be taken to the LuckPerms download page. Here you will see a blue download button on the right side of the page in front of the plugin title. Click here and LuckPerms will begin downloading. You need to keep the file in the lower-left corner of Google Chrome or save it in the middle of your screen in Mozilla Firefox. It’s pretty safe to save.
3. Install LuckPerms and restart your server
You downloaded LuckPerms and we need to install it. It’s extremely easy on Minecraft servers. Just take the downloaded plugin and drag and drop it into the “Plugins” folder on your server. If you don’t have a plug-in folder, see step 1 to make sure you have the correct server settings.
Once you’ve added your plugin to the plugins folder, simply restart your server to complete the installation process. It’s that easy to install LuckPerms on your Minecraft server!
4. Find the LuckPerms configuration files
One thing I wanted to mention before finishing this tutorial is where to find your plugin’s configuration files. They are very easy to find. Just look in the “Add-Ons” folder on your server. Here you will see a folder with the name of the installed plugin. Open it up and you will find all of the LuckPerms configuration files. You can edit and change them as you wish. We recommend that you use the Atom text editor for the best results!
