Source Code:https://github.com/brunyman/Essentials-MySQL-Storage-Extension/issues
A bukkit/spigot plugin that is an extension to Essentials and adds MySQL Database storage for users data files, works with Essentials, EssentialsX or Spigot-Essentials plugins. Tired of having 200k+ user files? Then this plugin stores everything in a database and allows you to get rid of that Essentials/userdata folder, will make life easier when running server backups or even opening the userdata folder. It will even allow you to sync Essentials user data across servers.

Please note! All this plugin does is copy the Essentials players data on the database and back, if you sync more servers and servers are different like different worlds or kits Essentials will remove data that is invalid. For example, if you copy user data from server A where the user saved his home in a world that does not exist in server B Essentials will remove that sethome location. This plugin does not change how essentials work you can test out without this plugin by manually copy the data file to the other server.

Do you want to save players data (Inventory, Enderchest, Money, Health, Exp and more...) on MySQL database? Or sync players data across servers?
Then check out my other plugin:

  • Command to export all users from the database back into essentials userdata files. So you can remove the plugin anytime without data loss.
  • Command to get Balance Top from the database data.
  • Ability to filter the players data file and remove data that you don't what to save.
  • Very configurable, check the config sample below.
  • Light, will use little resources and tasks run async to not impact the server performance or TPS.

How does it work?
When the player leaves the server his essentials data file is saved on the database. Then when he joins the server his essentials data file is deployed from the database to the Essentials/userdata folder and hook into Essentials to load it. This plugin does not change the way Essentials work, but manipulates the user data files to save them on the database.

*These are all required dependency's.
*Only 1 of the 3 Essentials plugins listed above you must have installed. DO NOT INSTALL all of them.

Install instructions
  1. Place the plugin in the server plugins folder, and make sure you have Essentials installed.
  2. Start the server to generate the config, then stop the server.
  3. Open the config and set up the database connection details and configure the plugin. You need to create the database, then the plugin will create the tables on it's own.
  4. Start the Server. Check the server log and make sure everything is ok. Done, enjoy.

Config sample
Spoiler: config.yml

Useful Info

[Essentials] Version mismatch! Please update EssentialsMysqlStorage to the same version.

Please ignore this log warning message. The reason Essentials posts this message is because this plugin hooks into essentials to sync data. Essentials thinks this is a module like EssentialsChat and posts that warning message to let you know it does not match the Essentials core version. This does nothing else.

Replace essentials /baltop with /ems baltop
You first need to disable essentials /baltop command, go to essentials config file and add the baltop command to the disabled commands like this:
- baltop
Then make a command alias for /ems baltop to /baltop , to do so go to the main server folder and add this to the commands.yml config file:
- ems baltop

Kit cooldown lost issues?
If you are still using old Essentials or Spigot-Essentials I recommend that you will update to EssentialsX as this is the updated and future of Essentials, it has fixes and is updated to work with latest spigot versions. If your kit cooldowns are not working after server restart update to EssentialsX but make sure it's the right version for your minecraft server version.

Issues with players not having the same UUID's when changing servers?
You need to make sure that all players have the same UUID's on all servers, this is important as player's data is stored based on their UUID and not their name. To have the same UUID's on all servers make sure that in the server config file spigot.yml on: settings > bungeecord: true , this will allow the server to get the player UUID from bungeecord and all servers will get the same UUID's. Make sure you have bungeecord: true on all spigot servers.

Issues with data save when you kick all players before server restart/shutdown?
Kicking all players before a server shutdown/restart can cause issues because when the plugin is disabling the server cancels all async tasks it is running. Normally when a player disconnects or is kicked his data is saved async to not lag the server, but when you kick all players right before stopping the server this becomes a problem as if data save is not complete for all players when you do /stop the server will cancel them! If you don't kick players before the shutdown the plugin will save their data on the main thread so the server will wait for all data to be saved before shutdown. If you still need to kick all players before shutdown then use the command /ems saveAndKick it will save all data and kick all players for you in a safe way.

Found a problem or got a suggestion?
I'm happy to add new features and fix any issue you may find, just post it in plugins forum, the button Discussion.

Future updates.
In case the plugin will need to be updated I will do it as fast as we get the new Minecraft version to keep the plugin running on all new versions.

This plugin works as it is stated in the description.
