How To Manually Install Tebex For Minecraft

Tebex Store supports direct integration with your Minecraft: Java Edition server via official plugins. Tebex’s Minecraft Plugin is called Buycraft. This is their old brand name, any mention of the word “Buycraft” in your server logs will refer to the Tebex Plugin.

This guide is going to walk you through how to install the Tebex plugin for your Minecraft server hosted with Nodecraft!

Create Tebex Account

If you haven’t done so already, the first thing you’ll want to do is to create a Tebex account. Here's their website link:

Tebex’s Control panel is where you’ll set up your store for your server, manage payouts, and where you can download the plugin itself.

After registering an account, you’ll be prompted to create your first Webstore, where you’ll give your store a name, description, and what version of Minecraft you’ll be playing.

Install the correct Plugins Framework for your Nodecraft Server

Before you try to install/upload the plugin to your server, you’ll want to make sure you have the appropriate framework installed. We always recommend making a Backup of your server before you make any changes, that way you have a fallback point.

You can make a backup in the Backups tab of the Panel.

The Sponge and Forge options will get installed into a /mods folder.

You can drag and drop the plugin directly into the File Manager to upload to your server, or you can use FTP.

Restart Server

If your server is online, you’ll want to reboot the server using the Restart button (or Stop, then Start it) so the server registers that the plugin is installed.

Get your Secret Key

Once your server is online, you’ll want to press the Copy Command button on the Tebex website and enter it into the Console of your server.
