How to update mods on a Valheim server

Valheim is an early-access open-world survival game developed by Iron Gate Studio. Valheim is steadily releasing new updates, such as the mistlands update or rework to the food system. However, users who have modded their games may experience crashes when loading an outdated mod on the new version. Most of the time, the out-of-date mod is the framework mod BepInEx, which is typically updated quickly following game updates.

FTP clients are used to transfer files to and from servers. Follow our guide on connecting with FTP clients.
