About The bukkit GUI project (BukkitGUI)


Problems? Please read the f.a.q. View frequently asked questions

Bukkitgui v2 is available as beta! You can download it from the files section. You can view the different versions at

The bukkit GUI project - shortened BukkitGUI - is intended to provide server owners with a easy to use, powerful GUI. Except from clearly displaying server information, it also adds some powerful functions, like a task planner, error logger and solver, plugin manager, . At this moment it does only use 30MB of your RAM, and 0% CPU when your server is running.

  • CPU usage may raise when there is a lot of output, like on startup (with many plugins or) reload.


  • Coloured output, colours definable in settings
  • Detailed player list with context menu, quickly apply an action to a player
  • Advanced options to launch bukkit, update bukkit, auto update check for bukkit
  • Automate your server with the task manager
  • Highly precise memory and CPU measurement
  • Low on resources, performance can be adjusted in settings
  • Error logging, searching for the cause of errors, and if possible, solving of errors
  • Tray icon (with support to minimize to tray) and balloon tips
  • Sound when something happen can be activated
  • Rarely/Never breaks on Minecraft/bukkit update
  • Backups (multiple backup definitions possible)
  • Install, update, manage plugins from within the GUI

Remote Server Support

The GUI can also show output and send commands to remote servers. The recommended way to use a remote server is by using JSONAPI. In order for this to work, the JSONAPI plugin should be installed on your server.

This project if freely available, but it takes a lot of time to maintain it and to add additional functions. A lot of functions are using my own scripts on my own (hired) server. So if you like the project and want to support me:


  • Fixed UTF-8 compatibility mode
  • Added support for JRE8


  • #11

    Here is what is says: 

    "Unhandeled exeption has occured in your application. If you click Continue, The application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

    Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

    Ive tried clicking continue, but then it just crashes. I really liked this plugin because it did the port-forwarding for me and super easy to use. Can someone tell me how to fix this?


  • #12

    Try clearing your config: remove the %appdata/Bertware/ folder, and the [your_gui_exe_folder/Bukkitgui folder (if it exists, probably won't exist). This will fix corrupt config files.

    Is there anything else in the message? I suggest you open an issue at

  • #13


    So now i can start the server, but when i try starting the server using superstart, it says: "The Server.jar file you entered is invalid or corrupted. Re- Download the file and try again."

    I have redownloaded the BukkitGUI about 2-3 times, and nothing has changed. Is there something I am doing wrong? If so tell me.



  • #10

    So for some reason when im useing the latest bukkit it says i need to acept the eula when i've already have.

    the server dose work but not in bukkit gui.

  • #6

    Amazing program! Is it possible to add your own server type?

  • #7

    It's possible for coders, as you can see the code is modular, to add a new server type you need to drop in 1 code file defining the functions of the new server (the differences with a standard minecraft server). The GUI will detect the newly added server, and you'll be able to run it as any other server. You need programming skills though (you also need to compile the GUI yourself in order to add your own server file)

    If you're wondering if you can use it with a specific server, just try some other server profiles :)
