Does your server crash randomly and unexpectedly? Use this plugin to Detect if your server has Crashed!

This plugin will restart your server within 1 minute of it crashing.

My server would crash every couple of hours, and if I/an Admin wasn't online it would stay down for multiple hours. So i decide to write this plugin.



This version gets rid of the old code of it being based on player interactions etc. I've been searching and testing for a very long time I've finally figured it out! It can be done!

How it now works

When your server crashes, it stops all plugins(even the old version of this plugin). But after a long hard struggle to find a way, I have finally figured it out! When the server crashes the main part of this plugin stops working, which stops triggering the external part of the plugin, which in turn detects within 1 minute whether the main part of the plugin is working, and if it doesn't it runs the command set in config.


You will need to edit your launch.bat to the following:

java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar
goto start

Where 1024M is the amount of memory you use.

For BukkitGUI users

Do what this guy does

For MultiCraft users

Ask your hosting company for your server to restart as soon as it stops.


Example crash
Note: Example was done with a 3 minute detection, I lowered it to 1 minute.




/cr : Tells the sender if the plugin is running.


V2.0 is compatible with all minecraft versions(tested back to 1.2.5).


Crash Restarter V2.0 uses Hidendra's plugin metrics system.

Metrics record and sends:

  • The server's Java version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The amount of CPU cores
  • Server Location
  • Game Version
  • Server Software

If you wish to disable Metrics, you can do so by opt-ing out, which you can do in the Metrics config file under /plugins/PluginMetrics/
