Please ensure you have configured the plugin correctly and check either your server log or console for more information

This can be caused by a number of issues, below lists the most common. If these do not resolve your issue, feel free to request Support.
SHOW DATABASES;. If the database is not contained in the results, it either has not been created or the user does not have permission to access it.
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON dbname.* TO [email protected]'IP' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';replacing dbname, username and password with your respective details. Then run
FLUSH PRIVILEGES;to ensure they are updated.
v2.x versions of BanManager have been reported as compatible. At a mimimum you will require v2.2, please ensure
useSyncChat is enabled in the config. Please note the following: documentation and guides are for recent BanManager versions only, there may be bugs, cross-server sync is not supported and older versions of BanManager are name based, not UUID meaning a change of name will evade bans for online-mode servers.
\n within the message in the messages.yml wherever you'd like a new line to start. For example:
disallowed: '&6Banned on Frostcast\n[reason]'
This is caused when players have the same name. When a command is executed, BanManager is unable to ascertain which player should be affected.
Resolving this issue depends on your online mode setting. In Online Mode, the plugin will attempt to resolve this when the affected players join; this requires a request to Mojang which sometimes fails due to rate limitations. In order to resolve this, please follow the steps below:
/bmutils duplicatesas a player; will output up to 10 duplicate names.
[confuser] * 2  
[x]will populate your chat with a command to set the name manually, e.g.
/bmutils duplicates ae51c849-3f2a-4a37-986d-55ed5b02307f confuser
newName. Should this occur, it is recommended you perform the correct name for each UUID yourself using a service such as mcuuid.net.
Follow the first 3 steps from Online Mode. Set the name manually yourself. Note, names are case insensitive within BanManager, however Minecraft interprets players of the same name with different cases, e.g. confuser & cOnFuSer as separate players. You should use an additional plugin to handle this correctly such as AuthMe.
This occurs when the wrong JDBC driver is in use. If you are using MariaDB, ensure
storageType is set to
It is not recommended you use root to connect to the database. Please use or create a non-root user to connect with.
This is usually caused by a slow database connection. If this is expected, disable this check by setting
leakDetection to 0. Otherwise, check the resources your database server has and tweak accordingly.
Each server polls for data changes including new punishments. Open your
schedules.yml file and check your timings. By default local punishments are checked every 30 seconds and global punishments every 2 minutes. Checking more frequently will increase database usage. If this is insufficient, enable
checkOnJoin in your config.yml; this will check the database for new punishments when a player joins each server.
