The following are the basic steps for updating Bukkit plugins, for any kind of OS:-
- Open the plugins folder present in the folder/directory that contains the craftbukkit.jar file.
- Create a folder there called update
- Download the plugin that needs to be updated. If it is a .jar file place it directly in the update folder. In case it is a .zip, or .rar or any other archived file, then extract the .jar file and place it in the update folder.
Note:- This plugin that is being placed in the update folder should have the same name as the plugin in the plugins folder.
- Issue a reload command on the server terminal, by simply typing reload and hitting return/enter.
This command will stop and restart plugins in the server, while also replacing plugins from update folder into the plugins folder.
Your plugins should now be updated.
