    Not sure if it's possible, I've started pocket edition and haven't been able to connect through localhost with the new "Minecraft" from the windows store that was formally the "Windows 10 Edition" it is now part of the Better Together Update, I am wondering if I can make my own Better Together compatible server with PocketMine and if so is there a tutorial for this?

    I am not new to server hosting as I do so on Java Edition already, I am familiar with how these things work. However I have never ran a pocket edition server. I have no clue on what to download and where to download it from? It is very confusing on the documentation because it just tells me to download a phar for windows? It seems it explains it all for Linux but not running on windows? Is it not able to run the server on Windows 10? I have no clue how to run it or what files I should be downloading to run the server on Windows 10 to work with the Better Together version.

    Please help, if possible just link me to a tutorial that clearly explains what I need to do to get from nothing to a working, Better Together server that supports plugins etc and that runs on Windows 10 so I can join on localhost. Thank you in advance :)

    Manual installation on Windows:
    Step 1: Make a new folder for your server
    Step 2: Download php-7.2.0RC3-vc15-x64.zip from here
    Step 3: Unzip it and make sure the folder called "bin" is in the folder you created before
    Step 4: Download the latest PMMP release's phar from GitHub releases
    Step 5: Rename it to PocketMine-MP.phar and put it in that same folder
    Step 6: Download the start script and put it in that folder too
    Step 7: Start your server by right-clicking the start script and selecting "Execute"
    Step 8: Enjoy!

    Thanks @HimbeersaftLP first of all, is there any explanation as to why it uses Php? I've run Java servers before and all they use it a jar and a start script.
    Regardless, that helped me a bunch to get it up and running to the right versions etc. But I still am unable to connect, I have not port forwarded as I am on my local machine and running the server and game both within the same environment, meaning localhost or 0.0.0.0:19132 should work? However it still does not work, are their any obviously fixes that I may have missed regarding PocketMine? Or is it firewalls/antivirus that may be hindering me? Thanks again :)

    Because pocketmine is written in PHP

    @iiFlamiinBlaze I roughly understood that was just confirming but that wasn't my major issue. Thanks for clarifying!

    And if it still doesn't work when you enter "localhost" as IP in Minecraft, then you can try using 127.0.0.1 instead

    @HimbeersaftLP worked perfectly. Thanks a bunch, sorry for the inconvenience. I just don't know my way around the forums yet and the support pages and documentation just lead me round in circles doing 10 different methods.

    One last thing to anyone who may know, What is poggit? What does it do and I assume it is the same as PocketMine? Thanks again :p

    Poggit is the site where you get plugins for PocketMine.
