How to install Spigot or PaperMC on a Minecraft server


Summary
PaperMC and Spigot are two popular platforms for Minecraft servers. PaperMC is a fork of Spigot, so all Spigot plugins are compatible with PaperMC, and it also supports Bukkit plugins. While Spigot updates faster, often within hours of new Minecraft versions being released, PaperMC updates slightly later but is expected to catch up. PaperMC provides a more advanced experience with additional features and optimizations, making it the recommended choice for most servers. However, Spigot might be preferred if immediate updates after new Minecraft versions are released or a more vanilla-like experience is desired.

Note The Nether and The End dimension saves may move locations when converting a Vanilla server to Spigot or Paper. Learn how to manage DIM saves here.
