Maximizing Flexibility: How to Update the Jar File on BeastNode Minecraft Servers
Step 1: Accessing the BeastNode Control Panel:
Start by logging into your BeastNode account and accessing the control panel. Once logged in, navigate to the section where you manage your Minecraft server. Look for options related to server configuration or file management.
Step 2: Stopping the Server:
Before updating the jar file, it is important to stop the Minecraft server. This ensures that no data is lost or corrupted during the update process. Locate the "Stop" or "Shutdown" button in the control panel and click it to halt the server's operation.
Step 3: Backing Up the Existing Jar File:
Before replacing the jar file, it is always recommended to create a backup in case any issues arise. Locate the current jar file in the control panel's file management section. Right-click on the file and choose the option to create a copy or download it to your local machine. This backup will serve as a safety net should you need to revert any changes.
Step 4: Downloading the New Jar File:
To update the jar file, you will need to obtain the latest version from the official Minecraft website or the server software's official sources. Ensure that you download the correct version corresponding to your server setup, whether it's the Vanilla Minecraft jar file or a specific server software like Spigot or Paper.
Step 5: Uploading the New Jar File:
Once you have downloaded the new jar file, return to the control panel's file management section. Locate the existing jar file and delete it. Then, upload the new jar file by clicking on the "Upload" or "Select File" button. Choose the updated jar file from your local machine and wait for the upload to complete.
Step 6: Restarting the Server:
With the new jar file uploaded, it is time to restart the server. Locate the "Start" or "Launch" button in the control panel and click it to initiate the server's operation with the updated jar file. Give the server a few moments to start up, and you should see the changes take effect.
Step 7: Testing and Troubleshooting:
Once the server has restarted, it is crucial to thoroughly test the updated jar file and ensure everything is functioning as expected. Join the server, interact with different plugins or mods, and engage in gameplay to verify that the update did not introduce any compatibility issues. If any problems arise, refer to the backup jar file created earlier to revert the changes or seek assistance from BeastNode support.
