Setup Votifier

Votifier is a CraftBukkit plugin that allows you to reward players when they vote for your server on a server website. Installing it is similar to installing any other CraftBukkit plugin. There is some additional configuration to enable it to work properly with our system.

Enable CraftBukkit

Download and Install the Votifier Plugin

Determine the version of your Minecraft server, download Votifier, place it into your plugins folder, and restart. To determine the Minecraft version, start Minecraft (or the modpack corresponding to your server) on your computer and check the the lower left corner. Detailed plugin installation directions are in the Enable CraftBukkit section links. We have received some reports that the latest versions of Votifier (1.8 and 1.9) can work with Tekkit Classic servers.

Configure the Votifier Plugin

We need to configure Votifier to use the correct IP and port. After you restart your server, Votifier should have generated a Votifier folder in the plugins folder. The folder contains its main configuration, as well as the public and private RSA keys. The keys encrypt the voting records while being sent over the Internet.

  1. Login to Command Center.
  2. From the server list, find the server you wish to modify, and click the Manage button on the right.
  3. Click the gear icon above the graphs and then Port Forwarding.
  4. Follow the directions to setup the port.

Download the Votifier Public RSA Key

You’ll need to download the Votifier public RSA key through SWinSCP. Server list sites will ask for the IP, port, and public RSA key.

  1. Login to your server SFTP.
  2. On the remote site, open the folder of the game that you installed the plugin to.
  3. Go to Votifier and then rsa.
  4. Drag public.key to the local site into a folder that you’ll remember.
  5. On your computer, right-click public.key and open with Notepad or another text editor. Do not open with a word processor like Wordpad. When a server voting site asks for an RSA key, copy the contents and paste it into the site.
