So, I'm running Bukkit on my minecraft server that I bought just 2 days ago. Having owned one before, I got permissions set up and running perfectly but alas, this time I cannot get it to work. Plugins I'm currently using are AutoSaveWorld, LWC, iChat, CommandBook, PEX (Obviously) and iConomy. HOWEVER, no matter how many times I set up permissions, they do not have any effect in game. My files LOOK to be working correctly, when I add users to specific groups using the ingame commands the users DO get put in the correct groups, I've assigned the groups (Admins, Members & Defaults) the correct permissions I want for each group, made sure to set Default as the default, but if I promote a player to a member, they cannot use simple commands like /chat <color> yet the default enabled ones like lwc.protect work fine for them. It's as if the permissions are not taking effect. I have no error messages when I start the server running. Everything gets detected and runs as normal. This PEX thing is beginning to drive me insane though. I can post server logs, yml files, jars, anything you guys need, just let me know. Any help is greatly appreciated beyond a level of comprehension you would ever understand.
