I have a server and I use the Essentials plugin but for some reason the commands in the title aren't working. It works with OPs but nobody else. Here are the permissions:

    default: true
    - -bukkit.command.plugins
    - essentials.warp
    - essentials.pay
    - essentials.pay.list
    - essentials.tpa
    - essentials.tpahere
    - essentials.tpaccept
    - essentials.back
    - essentials.tpa
    - essentials.tpaccept
    - essentials.tpdeny
    - essentials.spawn
    - essentials.warp
    - essentials.bal

But it doesn't seem to work. Am I doing this wrong? Here are my plugins:

  • Essentials
  • Essentials Group Manager
  • RedProtect
  • iDisguise
  • multiworld

I'm not super good with this stuff so you might have to explain it in simple terms. I use CraftBukkit FYI.

  • What server are you using? – SevenSidedDie Oct 10 '16 at 22:29
  • I mean, what Minecraft-server software is it? Is this Spigot, bukkit, etc.? server.pro offers multiple options, and it would help to know which you're having this problem with. – SevenSidedDie Oct 10 '16 at 22:32
  • Oh it's CraftBukkit sorry. – Jason Horkley Oct 10 '16 at 22:33
  • Do any other commands work or is it just about the ones stated? Are there maybe any error messages in the console/log? – dly Oct 11 '16 at 7:35

    Essentials is the root of all problems. Btw. try to recreate the file and then don't write into it, but use commands in console to add permissions. And even better, use apropriate plugin for handling permissions, for example PEX or similar. – Antoine Hejlík Oct 11 '16 at 8:16

The normal essentials version is very outdated, you should use essentialsX(CI Server: https://ci.drtshock.net/job/EssentialsX/)! If essentialsX also does not works it has to do with EssentialsGroupmanager! I recommend you go use LuckPerms(Spigot: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/luckperms-an-advanced-permissions-system.28140/) as your permissions system, it is very updated and has a nice dev. It also has a lot more function than groupmanager!

  • md5 also maintains a version of the last formal Essentials release, which can be downloaded Spigot's Jenkins server. Source is available on Spigot's Stash server. Obviously, this is just a maintenance version. EssentialsX will have additional improves and features. – Frelling Jan 1 '17 at 18:59
  • Essentials GroupManager is more outdated than Essentials itself. – haykam Jan 5 '17 at 22:08
  • @Frelling I didn't knew that. Nice to know! – Jamie Jan 6 '17 at 22:35

I just used PEX and it works. It's a great permission system, and it is easy to give people prefixes / suffixes, especially if you give them a group to be in! Thanks for the help!

I also needed to put "schema-version: 1" in thanks to PEX so now it's great.

Try adding a .* to the end of each permission node, one by one, to see if that solves the problem. Sometimes the node is just pointing to the name, not the command itself, and a .* can sometimes help a lot, without revealing too much control over the server, etc.

Hope this helps!
