How to install & Configure Votifier

What is Votifier? Votifier is a plugin whose purpose is to get notified when a vote is made on a Minecraft server list for the server. Votifier creates a lightweight server that waits for connections by a Minecraft server list and uses a simple protocol to get information about that vote. You are able to reward your players for voting for your server!

We will be using NuVotifier instead of the original Votifier plugin as NuVotifier has been updated to work with later versions of minecraft. It is a fork of the original plugin, Votifier.

Alright. Let’s Set it up!

How to install Votifier

Firstly, Download the plugin from the spigot website.

You will also need a “Vote Listener”. NuVotifier does not include any listeners by default. In this case, we will be using “SuperbVote” as our listener which you are able to download here.

Upload both plugins to the “plugins” folder. The plugins folder is located in the root directory of the server. Usually where the server.jar is located at.

Restart the server in the “Console” tab on the left-hand side of the panel. We do not recommend reloading the server as it may cause issues!

How to configure Votifier

Click on “Network” on the left-hand side of the Apollo Panel.

Click on “Create Allocation”. This will create an open port for votifier to use.

Next, Head back into the “File Manager” then into the “Plugins” folder, and finally into the Votifier folder and find the config.yml file.

Find the line port:. Replace the default port (8192) with the port which had been assigned to the server under the “Network” tab. If you have forgotten the port, simply check again under the “Network” tab. In this case, We will change the port to 25615.



Next, Head over to a server listing website. In this example, we are going to be adding our server on Minecraft Most websites will require you to create an account. Once created, Click “Add a Server”. You will be presented with a form that you will need to fill out. You will need to fill out the following:

Server Name (e.g MyVotifServer)
IP of the server (e.g
Server Port (e.g 28017)
Website (Optional)
Discord (Optional)
Country (Optional)
Youtube Video / Ad (Optional)

Click the “Enable Votifier” check box. Another form will pop up for you to fill out the information about Votifier. Enter the following:

Votifier IP (Same as IP of the server)
Votifier Port (e.g 25615)
Votifier Public Key - The public key is located in the “rsa” folder inside the “Votifier” plugin folder. Open the contents of the public key. Then copy the contents and paste it into the “Votifier Public Key” form box.

Overall, The filled out form should be looking similar to this:

To check that you have entered your Votifier information correctly, Click “Send Test Vote”. If the test has been successful, You should see the plugin responding back in the server console.

Finally, Click “Add” to complete the setup on

Want to reward your players for voting? (OPTIONAL)

Head over to the “SuperbVote” folder and find the “config.yml”

Find the line rewards:. Here you will be able to edit the commands that are executed when a player has voted. You are able to also set up special rewards if a player has specific permissions. For example, If you would like to give a player a diamond axe, simply, under the commands, enter the line - give %player% diamond_axe

Want to enable a /vote command? (OPTIONAL)

Find the line vote-command and change the line from false to true

Change the text. This will appear when the player will execute the /vote command
