Current version

  • Actual version is v1.6 intended for newest Craftbukkit versions.

Basic information

  • This plugin sends data to custom .PHP file on your website using GET headers. The data is information about current server status, e.g. Online/Offline, number of online players etc.


Configuration file

useSecurityKey: false
securityKey: '12345'
callUrl: ''
connection-timeout: -1
ignore-list: 'player1,player2,player3'
refresh-rate: -1
  • On the first start of server with this plugin the plugin creates folder ServerStatus and the configuration file. Then you have set data in config and restart the server.
  • In configuration file config.yml you can set useSecurityKey (true or false), your security key and full path (adress) to the .PHP file.
  • Security key can be any expession you want, you will need to set it only in this config.yml file and then in .PHP file. Key will be sent by plugin in GET header, and the .PHP file will check if it is equal.
  • Then you can set connection timeout. It means how long time give you to plugin to connect to .PHP file. (in milliseconds)
    (set -1 for default timeout)
  • And there is a ignore list. Players in ignore list will be ignored from counting and listing players (plugin won't send them to .PHP file).
  • Finally you can set refresh-rate to some number of seconds. It means that the plugin will send newest information every x seconds.
    (set -1 for disabling periodic call)

.PHP file

  • File code and download link: click here.
  • In this .PHP file is only easy script to read data from GET headers and to write it into .TXT file. You have to set the security key and if you are good .PHP programmer, you would be able to rewrite the code to whatever you want (e.g. write data to .HTML files, to MySQL database,...).
  • You can choose, if you want to have banner.png or some TXT file with server status. Banner will look like this:
List of GET headers
  1. sec - The security key
  2. status - Status of the server, can be Online or Offline
  3. name - Name of the server, loaded from server-properties file
  4. motd - Server's message of the day from server-properties file
  5. ip - IP adress of the server, loaded from server-properties file
  6. port - Port of server behind the IP adress, loaded from server-properties file
  7. plsnum - Number of online players
  8. maxnum - Maximum number of players, loaded from server-properties file
  9. players - List of online players
  10. log - Reason why was the URL called (It can be "Starting up Minecraft server", "Stopping Minecraft server", "Player (name) has joined the game", "Player (name) has left the game")
  11. plversion - Contains version number of this plugin
  12. bkversion - Contains version number of used Bukkit version
