    how exactly am i suppost to change the actual . jar part? i can change the name shown on the file to whatever i want yet it still says craftbukkit.jar cannot be accessed
     
  5. mr.fixitman760 sometimes, the file hides its .jar so in some cases the file is named craftbukkit.jar.jar

    if u want to start a jar file, the file must have rights to be executable!

    Hey, i'm new to set up a bukkit server, i bought the server from multicraft, and is trying to make it from default minecraft, to bukkit so i can get plugins and so on, but whenever i try to run that bat file it says
    unable to access jarfile craftbukkit.jar and i have no clue on what to do, also my craftbukkit.jar file is now a winrar file, before it was something else, i'm not aware of that's a problem

    Let me tell all of you something. I do not want to download anything more today. I am trying to use craftbukkit. It's not working. For me, no surprise there. I continuously edit the run file, because when it opens the cmd command prompt, It says that it is unable to access craftbukkit .jar. HELP! It is nothing posted above.

    Just rename craftbukkit<numbers here> to plain old craftbukkit. DO NOT PUT .JAR ON THE END.

    This didn't work for me. I assume that the reason behind all this is because of bukkit's shutdown, but im wondering if there is a way past it.

    Step 1. Download CraftBukkit
    Stop 2. Make a start.bat:
    Code (Text):
    1. java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true
    2. PAUSE
    Step 3. Rename CraftBukkit<numbers> to just craftbukkit
    Step 4. Run start.bat as administrator
