so i was hosting a snapshot server recently but i soon was annoyed by updating the server all the time a new snapshot was released.
so i created a little script for windows users that updates the server and also creates a backup.
all you have to do is download the batch file from the google drive link and move it in your minecraft server folder.
once you run it it checks if there is a server already installed, in that case you can just hit u to update
if you have no installed server yet, you can just create a new folder, place the file in the folder, select the version you want to install and follow the instructions.
this script will also guide you through all of the server settings, so you don't have to edit the settings file manually
Its very useful for snapshots aswell, keeping your server always up to date.
You can chose from a list of all stable Minecraft versions to install (except the very old ones).
Snapshot selection is planned.
but explaining it really is harder than trying it for yourself
if you want to try out the program you can just place it in an empty folder and install a new server in literally no time
