    Sorry if I've overlooked something here, but can I remove a plugin without having to restart the server? When I try to do it, Windows says the file is in use..

    Most likely not, because the server is actively using the plugin when the server is on. Server must be shut down to remove a plugin. Hopefully in the future we could at least disable/enable plugins while the server is active.

    Thanks for your reply.. I was wondering maybe if there was a command in the console like

    remove <plugin-name>

    You can delete it in the plugins folder, and then do /reload.
    You should be careful as this can cause errors/memory leaks.

    Maybe I'll delete every folder in my 32 bit except "run.bat" then run "run.bat". Actually, for me it's "start.bat".

    @Duncan3242 I have no idea what you are talking about, I said he can try removing the plugin then reloading the server.

    If the server is on a linux system, there is no problem.
    I run a test server on my win7 64bit for tinkering and I can't remove/delete a plugin while the server is running.
    Now that I think about it, disabling the plugin then attempting to remove it might work. I haven't tried that yet.
