Pre configured Permissions
The pre-made Minecraft faction server comes with several plugins already installed. The main plugins used here are going to be Essentials, Worldguard, Factions, Worldedit, PermissionsEx, Vault, and ClearLagg. All of these have been installed and configured on the latest builds. Just log in, run the permex commands to add yourself to the right group, and start playing.
There are several initial permissions ranks already preconfigured. By default, no user can break blocks in the spawning area as it is all protected with Worldguard. As OP you, of course, can still make edits to your world. These worldedit functions have been restricted to OP only in addition to other basic functionality like ban players. Out of the box, the factions server is anti-grief protected.
Pre configured backups
The factions server comes with premade scheduled tasks generating backups once a day during low usage hours. This backup will ensure that if anything were to ever happen to your world you will never lose your data. To restore to the server world backup follow the how to use a backup tutorial.
With the addition of WorldGuard and Permissionsex your server has been protected from popular forms of griefing and spawn breaking. Choose wisely when giving users ranks and permissions as the higher ranks can allow them to break your world.
The custom spawn is complements of Playman from PlanetMinecraft. You can find the original seed here.
