How to install a custom modpack on your server:
1. Prepare the modpack files somewhere on your desktop. (typically modpacks will have a Download Server Files button on the launcher page.)

2. Open the folder, and rename the forge .jar file to custom.jar (leave the minecraft_server<version>.jar file alone).

3. Select all the folder's contents, then right-click>Send to>Compressed (zipped) folder.

4. Open and connect an FTP client to your server. (click here for a tutorial on how to configure an FTP).

5. Drag and drop the compress .zip folder onto the FTP client.

6. Log in to your BisectHosting control panel.

7. Click File Manager then locate the zipped folder.

8. Select the folder then click More>Unarchive.

9. Return to the homepage, and select Open Jar Menu.

Select Custom then Custom .jar. Click Save.

11. Restart your server.
