How do I get a list of installed plugins on my server from the client?

It's minecraft_server.1.8.4.jar running on a Linux server.

  • /plugins yields "Unknown command. Try /help for a list of commands" – NitroxDM May 13 '15 at 3:03

    First, install essentials. Second, run /plugins. I think. – Elias Benevedes May 13 '15 at 3:56
  • You should specify if it is your server and which type of server it is. There is plenty of types of servers....And - does it have any plugin at all? (I mean that you seen some in work, it also can by vanila server without plugins) – Antoine Hejlík May 13 '15 at 8:22
  • @Elias Benevedes - No dice. – NitroxDM May 13 '15 at 16:10
  • @NitroxDM maybe craftbukkit server core instead? Looks like the plugin command is explicitly listed on that page. – Elias Benevedes May 13 '15 at 16:17


When using the Vanilla Minecraft server, you cannot install plugins and therefore there will not be any on your server.

Bukkit / Spigot

On Bukkit / Spigot servers, you can use the /plugins command as others said in the comments. It also shows which plugins have been enabled successfully (green) and which failed (red).

Additionally, you can look at the plugins directory in the server folder. Each .jar-file should represent one plugin. You need file-access to the server though, and I recommend you to use the command.
