How to use the JAR Menu

Our JAR Menu will let you know if your server is in need of an update by displaying the following message:
New Version Available

Note: Paper, Spigot, and Craftbukkit builds are updated daily. Restart your server to apply the latest build.
Only Premium Minecraft server customers have access to the automatic modpack installer/updater in the JAR Menu.
If you have a Budget Minecraft server and would like to access this functionality, please purchase the Advanced Support addon here.


How to switch between JAR files:
1. Login in to your BisectHosting Multicraft Panel.

2.
 Stop your server.


3.
 Locate and click Open Jar Menu.


4.
 Select the desired Modpack or Minecraft Mirror.


5.
 Select the desired version (we recommend using the latest version).


6.
 Click Save in the bottom right corner.


7.
 Start your server and it will automatically switch to the selected JAR file and launch your server.

Note: All of your old server files will be sent to a folder called old_<current_modpack>_<current date and time>. The new modpack will begin installing on your system.



How to update your server's JAR file:

1. Login in to your BisectHosting Multicraft Panel.

2. Stop your server.


3.
Locate and click Open JAR Menu.


4.
Select the newest version your server currently runs on. (Usually indicated by "New Version")


5.
Click Save in the bottom right corner.


6.
Start your server and it will automatically update to the newest JAR version.

Note: If you know for a fact that there is a new version available, but does not appear on the Jar Selection Menu, then contact us via a support ticket.


How to use a custom JAR file:
1. Download the desired .jar file to your computer. 

2.
 Rename the .jar file to custom.jar (If you want the jar to be running on Java 7, rename it customjava7.jar)
    Notice: To avoid renaming your file "custom.jar.jar", make sure you either have file extensions on or simply rename it "custom".


3. 
Login in to your BisectHosting Multicraft Panel.

4.
Click on the File Manager tab and select Upload.



5.
Drag and drop the custom jar file into the upload panel.

6.
Open your control panel homepage and click Open Jar Menu.


7.
At the bottom, click on Custom and select custom.jar (or select customjava7.jar if you want to launch it using Java 7)


8.
Click Save.


9.
Restart your server.
