HuskTowns stores player and town data in a database of your choosing. For cross-server setups, you'll need to configure a MySQL or MariaDB database to allow homes to be accessed globally.
Warning:There is currently no automatic way of migrating between database types. Changing the database type will cause data to be lost.
|Type||File or Server||Description||Supports cross-server|
|File||A file-based database. This is the default (recommended) option.||❌|
|Server||A database hosted on a MySQL server.||✅|
|Server||A database hosted on a MariaDB server.||✅|
If you are using HuskTowns on a cross-server network, you will need to use a database type that supports cross-server setups. This is because cross-server setups require a single database to be shared between all servers so that HuskTowns can access the same data on each server.
To change the database type, navigate to your
config.yml file and modify the properties under
Database options (config.yml)
database: # Type of database to use (SQLITE, MYSQL or MARIADB) type: SQLITE mysql: credentials: # Specify credentials here if you are using MYSQL or MARIADB as your database type host: localhost port: 3306 database: HuskTowns username: root password: pa55w0rd parameters: ?autoReconnect=true&useSSL=false&useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=UTF-8 connection_pool: # MYSQL database Hikari connection pool properties. Don't modify this unless you know what you're doing! size: 10 idle: 10 lifetime: 1800000 keepalive: 30000 timeout: 20000
You will need to specify the credentials (hostname, port, username, password and the database) if you are using MariaDB or MySQL. These credentials are used to connect to your database server.
Additionally, you can modify the HikariCP connection pool properties if you know what you're doing. The default values should be fine for most users.
