Default Server Settings

  • Views Views: 1,488

  • Server settings are set with three files: bukkit.yml containing bukkit specific settings, spigot.yml for the spigot settings, paper for paper settings, and server.properties for minecraft settings.

    This complete cluster***k of settings is because of the history of development of the server API.
    In the beginning there was Bukkit API, which introduced settings specific to Bukkit. Spigot is a performance-based fork on the now defunct Bukkit API, which also added additional settings. Paper is an even more performant and configurable fork of Spigot and also adds extra settings.

    I personally don't think there's a single dev anymore who knows what settings takes precedence to another, but these are the default files that are generated on a fresh install.


    bukkit.yml:
    # This is the main configuration file for Bukkit.
    # As you can see, there's actually not that much to configure without any plugins.
    # For a reference for any variable inside this file, check out the Bukkit Wiki at
    # https://www.spigotmc.org/go/bukkit-yml
    #
    # If you need help on this file, feel free to join us on irc or leave a message
    # on the forums asking for advice.
