How to add plugins to a Forge server (up to Forge 1.7.10)


Minecraft plugins can affect many aspects of the game and introduce various new quality-of-life features, server management utilities, or game mechanics. Plugins can be beneficial for owners of large servers, as there are numerous chat plugins and moderation tools to help manage servers. Plugins can also add helpful features to help manage storage or enhance the building system.

Note Forge servers by default do not support craftbukkit/spigot plugins. You can add this functionality by installing either Cauldron or MCPC+ on your server. Some modpacks come with either of these mods installed by default requiring no additional setup.

Note Only Premium servers and/or Budget servers with the Advanced Support Addon can install Cauldron or MCPC+ automatically. 

How to install plugins on your Forge server
1. Log in to the BisectHosting Premium or Budget panel.

2. Select Open Jar Menu.

Click Cauldron/MCPC/Thermos. 

4. Select either a Cauldron or MCPC+ build that matches your Minecraft version.

5. Click Save.

6. Restart your server.

7. You can now install plugins on the Plugins folder using the File Manager.

Note Some mods are incompatible with Cauldron or MCPC+ and will need to be removed. These include Fastcraft, MobiusCore, and Opis.
