There are a few platforms available to server administrators, which allow plugins to be installed. Examples of these platforms are Canary and Bukkit. Minecraft Servers Various plugins can be installed, from colored signs to new mods.
This is a list of bugs that occur in most server game play experiences.
This occurs when the ping of the server increases to a certain point, this can cause players to break two blocks instead of one, blocks not breaking, blocks respawning, or gravity on blocks not working.
Flashing Render Glitch
This happens usually when TNT is ignited, it causes the blocks to not dissapear. The blocks will usually stay in place, vibrate and flash. It will not increase light level and the render glitch will not be touchable. This can be fixed by logging off, and logging back in.
Chunk ErrorThis happens most commonly in Multiplayer, but all errors are Client-Side only. The server is not at fault for this. Falling into a missing chunk can cause the player to die just like falling through bedrock. The damage rate is the same as Lava. Throwing items into the chunk error will make the items unable to be obtainable if you are on Single Player but in Multiplayer you can reload the server and retrieve your items.
Server AdministrationThe Window GUI of the Server Application allows you to type in commands to administer your server. The server admins can "OP" players to give them administrative permissions. This allows them to access the commands by adding the prefix "/" before the command.
