hi all. running McMyAdmin Professional Edition with the latest official build of minecraft (1.13.2). is there any way to change the 'server type' to craftbukkit without reinstalling everything? it's my dedicated server and git is installed. cheers.

All you need to do is pick the type you want from the dropdown under the configuration. If you already have the jar file you're done, otherwise hit Install and it'll run BuildTools for you and sort it all out.

tried a few times but no go. last few lines in the console are...

[0 06:57:05 INFO]: View Distance: 12
[0 06:57:05 INFO]: Experience Merge Radius: 3.0
[0 06:57:05 INFO]: Zombie Aggressive Towards Villager: true
Notice  : Minecraft server has stopped running.
Warning : Known failure. Not attempting to restart server.
Warning : Failure Reason: The server failed to start multiple times, but the reason why is not known. You may have a corrupt server jar.

any ideas? thanks.

You'd have to check the full log. What that message actually means is that the Java process exited by itself when it wasn't expected 5 times in a row.

yeah...i have the full log but nothing is jumping out at me. going to try and go back to official for the moment so things are at least running. thanks for taking the time to reply. i'll no doubt pop up in the trouble shooting section at some point.
