DKMotd Installation

The DKMotd installation is very easy and can be done in a few minutes. Follow these instructions exactly and contact our support if you have any questions or problems.


DKMotd supports Minecraft 1.8 - 1.18.2 and runs on all McNative supported platforms:

  • Bukkit, Spigot, PaperSpigot, Yatopia, Tunity, Purpur, Airplane
  • BungeeCord, Waterfall, Travertine, FlameCord
  • McNative

DKMotd is designed for running on multiple servers and supports all McNative messaging technologies:

  • BungeeCord Proxy Network (Plugin Message Channels)
  • CloudNet V2 (Multi proxy)
  • CloudNet V3 (Multi proxy)

DKMotd only support official Minecraft versions published by Mojang. Cracked (offline mode) is not supported.


DKMotd supports java 8 - 17 and requires a stable internet connection (DKPerms downloads all necessary libraries dynamically). If you are using DKMotd on multiple servers, you also need a supported remote database (MySQL, PostgreSQL, MS-SQL, MongoDB et.c).


1. - Get A License

DKMotd is a paid plugin and before you can start with the setup you have to purchase a license in the McNative Store. See also the DKMotd license agreement.

2. - Download

To install DKMotd, download the latest loader here and move it to your plugins folder. Start your server.

In this setup, we use the simple loader. If you are interested in the template loader to install multiple resources dynamically, checkout the McNative Docs.

If you are using a network with multiple servers, you must usually only install DKMotd on your proxy server.

3. - Licensing

After DKMotd has started you will see an error in your console (Missing or wrong authentication credentials). To license DKMotd to your server you have to enter your network credentials in the McNative config (You will find the credentials in the McNative console) or use your personal license key.

Key Licensing
If you want to continue with your personal license.key you just have to put it in the folder plugins/DKMotd.

McNative Licensing
If you want to work with McNative and is capabilities, enter your console credentials (you will find them in the McNative console on the left side) in the McNative configuration (plugins/McNative/config.yml).

Restart your server, if everything worked correctly a folder named DKMotd should be created in ./plugins.

(4. - Storage setup)

After the installation you can optionally set up a storage solution like MySQL. Read more about storages here

If you are using a network with multiple servers, you must connect to the same remote database.
