Help with EssentialCmds Permissions?

I owned an old minecraft server a while back and then bukkit stopped making updates… so then i waited for sponge to come out and now I’m here with a goal to make a fully functional server again.

So I used Essentials back when I owned my old Bukkit server. Now I have found that there is a new Essentials. So I got everything setup and then I needed to start on permissions (so i can setup Owners, Admins, Mods, etc.) but then it started talking about MySQL? I had never heard of that and i logged in and ported everything and got to the page where there are a bunch of things that I don’t even understand.

Can someone help?

if you can hop over to and join #essentialcmds we can talk :slight_smile:
