Minecraft | How to install Fabric API

Installing Fabric on your server

Fabric is a lightweight, experimental modding toolchain for Minecraft.

Installing Fabric Server

Download the Windows Fabric Installer.

You can download it here:
Create a folder on your desktop

Run the installer you downloaded and select "server", you can find it in the tab.

Select the Minecraft Java version you prefer. Do not touch the loader, keep it default unless you know what it is. For the file location, select the folder that you just made.

After The installation is done, click “download server jar” and wait for it until it says Valid.

There will be two jars, fabric-server-launch.jar and server.jar. Rename fabric-server-launch.jar to fabric.jar.

Upload the fabric.jar and the server.jar from the folder you have created to your server (you need to replace any existing server.jar you might have on the server).

We recommend using FTP to upload the files. For a tutorial on SFTP please see:
On the panel head to Startup (in top menu) > Startup Settings and change the "Server Jar File" name to fabric.jar, then will be saved automatically.

Start your server.
