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Not normally needed, but if you're running a Minecraft server that is outdated, then strict versioning will only download compatible versions of plugins.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.

Configuration

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.

    Really nice plugin :), finally no chat spam about updates when i join my server. But about your last comment where you said that it can download the wrong minecraft version plugin when running older versions. Isn't that fixable by checking for the bukkit version and what minecraft version the new plugin is?

    I do love this and it works so well :), did kind of crash my server the first time when i ran it (RAM issues) but the rest is amazing!

    @Mcshnazzy: Go

    Sadly too many people install this without realising what it is. The plugin isn't at all broken; it simply downloads and updates plugins to the latest version from bukkit.org nothing much more. Also for the auto detect of plugins, it kind of has to guess the bukkit page from the name of /plugins and the bukkit url which generally works but can get mix ups (easily fixed via commands). However the biggest issue is that it's the LATEST version, so of you use it on a 1.7.10 server, etc... Then it will download maybe 1.8 plugins where available (unless you config it not to) and thus cause issues. The issue here isn't the plugin; but a lack of understanding.

    @domanition: Go

    Remove the UltimatePluginUpdater.jar ;)

    @domanition: Go

    the 'updater' folder is NOTHING to do with this plugin.

    I updated my server to spigot 1.8 and now lockette works but essentials still won't and i can't remove the updater folder.

    I installed this on my 1.6.4 bukkit server in linux and now I can't use lockette because it displays a ton of error messages on the boot up and I can't use essentials because it becomes red in the plugins list and none of the commands work someone please help me.

    @storm345: Go

    Thank you but I've been trying to get rid of the Updater file but on every reboot it just comes right back. Please help me as soon as possible this is a huge problem for my server.

    Probably not!

    @domanition: Go

    This plugin updates plugins to the LATEST version, there is an option in the config to try and match only the version the server was running but clearly it was off. Most new plugin updates on Bukkit are for MC 1.7 or MC 1.8, not MC 1.6.4. As a result updating the plugins broke them. If you aren't running your server on the latest version of Minecraft, this plugin has little use to you.
