    Hope you provide an update soon. Apparently there was a big issue with spigot today which subsequently forced many servers to update to versions of spigot which causes the server to crash from factions. The only way my server can even go online at the moment is by removing this plugin. :(

    I recently bought a hosted server through hosthorde. I told it to install factions but it doesn't load successfully. I double checked that I'm using the 1.7.2 version of bukkit too. Essentials is the only thing that works.

    Does anybody know a way that I can manually install the files so that it's done right?

    @AlcaGamerZ: Go

    There is a specific page for that FAQ.


    basically, what op does is it allows to do ABSOLUTELY anything on the server. That can be dangerous if you op people just to make them map-builders for example as they can absolutely ruin everything. Permissions are specifics what can some groups of people do. That way you can create group of for example moderators that can only kick some people, but cannot reassign territories or something like that.
