    Server AutoStop
    Time-Based Scheduled Server Shutdowns and Restarts
    I no longer support this plugin as I don't have the time. Sorry. Plugin devs. can edit the source and release it as they want. The current version is somewhat functional on some systems but not others.

    Version: v0.53
    Source: v0.53
    Requirements: Permissions v2.0/2.5+ (Optional)

    A simple plugin that saves player and chunk data then shuts the server down at a specified time.

    The plugin will automatically put AutoRestart.jar in your bukkit directory.
    Don't run it; it won't do anything.
    Do not delete or move it.
    If your server doesn't auto restart, post your restart_log.txt here.
    If there is no restart_log.txt, you're doing it wrong.
    If you use a .bat file (server_nogui.bat), set your path to: path=start server_nogui.bat

    Remember, your server's timezone may be different. Take that into account when setting up your autostop.properties.

    • Saves Player Data
    • Saves Chunk Data
    • Gives a custom warning at specified time before shutting down
    • Quickly shuts server down
    • Uses autostop.properties to specify what time (24-hour clock) it should shutdown at
    • Automatically creates the properties file if it doesn't exist
    • Automatically restarts server (if you enable it)
    • Multiple restart times

    FAQs (open)

    Don't use permissions? Just OP yourself.

    What is the permission? autostop.use

    • /reboot - Immediately saves data and restarts the server.
    • /restart - Same as reboot.
    Properties Example:
    stoptime=12:00:00 12:05:00 12:10:00
    # Use 24-hour time. Separate times with a space. [Hour:Minute:Second]
    warntime=0:10 0:30 1:00 5:00 15:00
    # Displays warning this many min:sec before shutting down. Separate with space. [Minutes:Seconds]
    warnmsg=Shutting down...
    # Warning message to display.
    # Enables automatic server restarts. If this is true, path must not be blank.
    path=java -jar craftbukkit.jar
    # Path to server file (including any arguments). This can also be a command if you are using crontab/screen/etc.
    # Linux screen example:
    # path=screen -dmS MinecraftServer java -jar craftbukkit.jar
    Suggestions and feedback appreciated! :)

    I tried alot of things and I tought I finally got it working with the MinecraftDelayedStart thing by @ledhead900, but now it still gives me the error: Could not bind to port, perhaps a server is already running on that port?
    Even after a 10 seconds delay!
    Someone please help me

    Well, I don't see Afforess' fork of this anymore... I would love to see something like this that is again going to be updated... Anyone have any ideas? This plugin still works for me but comes up with nags now, may not work for much longer.

    It should still work for a while, though nobody can really be sure of that. I just couldn't handle dealing with all the people who didn't understand how to use it. I may or may not rewrite and re-release it, but if I do, it would probably be in a couple/few months.
