Strict Versioning

Not normally needed, but if you're running a Minecraft server that is outdated, then strict versioning will only download compatible versions of plugins.
This feature is not needed for servers running up-to-date with Minecraft and is turned off by default. To turn it on, look in the config.

First Run

Line First Run Line

On the first run of the plugin it will automatically search all plugins installed and index/register them with the updater. (Happens when a new plugin is installed also). Then it will take the newly registered plugin(s) and attempt to re-download them all off dev.bukkit.org - This should only happen the first time it meets a new plugin; from then on the downloads will only be for new versions of plugins. However if the task is unsuccessful for a certain plugin (Bukkit page is different to plugin name) then it will un-register it and you'll have to register it manually with /upu register.
To plugin developers: It is quite likely that you don't want the updater to re-download your plugin for every new version-Your version is newer! If this is the case simply do /upu unregister <PluginName> and the updater will no longer attempt to update it.
Force update a plugin: If you wish to force update a plugin simply do /upu update <Plugin> and if you're impatient follow it with /upu check. Do not however type /reload until it is updated because then it will cancel the update. If you wish to force update all your plugins (corrupted, etc...) then simply look in the plugins/UltimatePluginUpdater folder and delete the cfgPlugins.data file - This will make the plugin think it is doing the 'first-run' again and it will re-register all installed plugins.


Line Configuration Line

There isn't a lot to configure: Just the colour scheme and which plugins are registered. The colour scheme can be changed in plugins/UltimatePluginUpdater/config.yml and the rest can be done with the commands above.

    can you add plugman support so instead of having to reload the entire server (Like detection if the plugin is avalible then use "/plugman reload <plugin>" instead of "/reload"

    This service is to update bukkit plugins as there's an API for that; but spigot plugins have no such system and therefore sadly cannot be included. As the url name issue, when you register a plugin manually you can specify the 'slug' which is the part from the bukkit url :)

    Anyway this can be compatible with Spigot plugins, also, can you specify the link to a plugin for if the name is different?

    It's not this plugin, it's another one which was updated

    I installed this plugin and ran it. Now if I try to type a message it just says 'chat.local' how do I fix it?

    Does this update plugins to the 1.7-1.8 spigot version if avalible?

    @storm345: Go

    That wasn't my question. I was asking if there was a way to change the interval in which the plugin checks for updates.

    This account is so old that I don't even use that username anymore.
    If you want you can refer to me as "robomwm"
