To configure your server to your likings, open the File Manager and edit the config.yml. The general path to this plugin's configuration file is /home/container/plugins/InventoryRollbackPlus/config.yml.

The configuration file will consist options like:
Plugin enabled/disabled.
Maximum save per type per user.
Modifying the file path of the data saved.
Utilising remote databases for remote saving. (Read an article here on how to setup a database)
Managing sound effects.
Managing time zones.

Of course, if you wish to change the message formats of the plugin, you may edit the messages.yml.

Getting started!

By starting the server, the plugin has already latched itself to the world events. These events include players joining, leaving, on death, world changes and of course manual commands. Once a player has died, their inventory and meta data has been saved and is prepared by the plugin in the internal data config. You can access these records through the /ir restore command. A list of online players are given through a friendly GUI. By accessing the individual's type of save, you can choose whether to take individual items out, restore the whole inventory or restore the meta data.
