Installing a modpack

This guide will be walking you through how to upload a modpack to your Minecraft server.

Step 1: First of all you need to download the server pack from any given mod client like Twitch, FTB, Tekkit or Curse.

Step 2: Once you have the server pack downloaded from the given client locate the file. If you have a start.bat or install.bat file or anything named similair to this make sure to run these first. If you do not have these proceed to step 3.

Step 3: You now need to zip all the files to create a .zip file.

Step 4: Once this .zip file has been created you need to upload it to the game panel using SFTP. Make sure you have deleted all the files before you upload the modpack onto the server.

Step 5: Once the .zip file is uploaded extract the .zip file by right clicking on it and select unarchive to unzip the .zip file.

Step 6: When the files are decompressed, locate your forge.jar. This can be a long name with numbers, universal or the name forge in it.

Step 7: Change the name of this file to server.jar.

Step 8: Once you have done that. Launch the server and you are ready to go!
