How to create a modded minecraft server

In this guide, we'll see how to create a Minecraft server modded with Forge. This API allows you to install many different modes easily. We'll discuss all of the issues of creating your private modded server: installation of Forge on the server (and the client Minecraft, without launcher) and then how to install mods.

Requirements

How to install Forge?

The installation is done in one click thanks to the management panel.

  1. Click on Version, API, Modpacks.
  2. Click on Forge.
  3. Choose the version of Minecraft you want for your server and take the latest version from the build column:

  4. To start the installation of Forge, you can choose between:
    - Reinstall your Minecraft server with forge (current data on your server are going to be destroyed).
    - Install Forge on your server without reinstalling it.

  5. Choose what's right for you and start the installation!

How to install a Forge mod?

To install a Forge mod, we'll need to have access to the server files. To do this, you can either use the FTP Web in the management panel (recommended) or an FTP client like FileZilla. To add a mod, send it to the minecraft/mods directory.

  1. Go to the management panel.
  2. Click  Fichiers & FTP.
  3. Go to the minecraft/mods directory.
  4. Restart your Minecraft server.
  5. To connect to the server, you must install the mod on your Minecraft client.


Here, the forge mod is now installed on your server.

If there is an issue within the previous procedure:

  • Make sure that the mod you want to install is compatible with the forge version of your server.
  • View the logs in the server console by clicking on the dashboard.
