How to update minecraft server when a new version comes out?

When a Minecraft  update is available, your Minecraft game will ask you if you want to install this update.
If you are using bukkit on your server you should NOT update your game or your server immediately.

In fact it often takes several days before a compatible version of bukkit gets released.

Accordingly:
- If you update your game you will not be able to join "old version" servers that run on bukkit.
- If you upgrade your server you will need to disable bukkit and therefore your bukkit plugins.


It is important to wait until the release of a bukkit version compatible.
Once bukkit available you will probably need to update some of your plugins as they may no longer work.
Once bukkit updated start your server and verify that there are no errors in the server.log (log file). For each error related to a plugin check if there is not a newer version of this plugin available and if so update it. Otherwise disable it.


To update the server:
- In "official" mode, from mcmyadmin> Configuration> Server settings set the "Server type" on "Official" and then click install OR from the control panel> game updates install minecraft server version to date.
- In "bukkit"  mode, from mcmyadmin> Configuration> Server settings set the "Server type" to "craftbukkit" then click install OR from the control panel> game updates install bukkit version desired.

Attention: generally bukkit releases a "not recommended" / beta / development version BEFORE the recommended one. Thus, according to the version of bukkit chosen (development or recommended) the server will be in the new or old version of minecraft  until the recommended version gets released.
