Adding custom mods to a server

If you want to add more mods to your existing modded servers please follow the steps below. As always please make sure the version of the mod you are installing is compatible with the version of your server.

If you running your own custom modpack:

1. Stop your server
2. Access your server files and go into the mods folder
3. Upload whatever mod you want to add into the mods folder
4. Start your server and that mod will be loaded

If you are running one of the modpacks we have available in our panel:
1. Stop your server
2. Access your files using FTP rename your current server .jar (same file that's in the JAR File text box in the Multicraft panel) to custom.jar*
3. Now in the Multicraft panel using the JAR selection menu select Special: custom.jar* and click save. This will tell server to look for the newly renamed custom.jar*
4. Access your server files and go into the mods folder
5. Upload whatever mod you want to add into the mods folder
6. Start your server and that mod will be loaded

*If you are using a modpack that is older than 1.7.10 rename the .jar file to customjava7.jar instead to launch the modpack with Java 7.

As you see there are a few extra steps you will need to take in order to bypass our automated install system. If you don’t by pass it, it will automatically undo any changed you try to make such as uploading mods or changing config files.

(same file that's in the JAR File text box in the Multicraft panel)
