How to Locate Your Minecraft Modpack Folder

When trying to debug a Forge server and fix issues, especially ones regarding synchronisation issues, it can sometimes be helpful to upload your client's mods and configurations to the server in order to remedy this.

The location of your modpack folder varies per modpack and per launcher, so this guide is designed to help you find the installation folder for whichever modpack or launcher you use. To find the modpack installation folder for your modpack launcher of choice, simply find your launcher below and follow the steps.

Technic Launcher

  1. Open the Technic Launcher.
  2. Select the modpack you are trying to open the folder for. In this example, we will be using Tekkit.
  3. Click the Modpack Options button in the top right of the Technic Launcher.
  4. Click the Open button in the new Modpack Options window to open the modpack install folder.

CurseForge Launcher

  1. Open the CurseForge Launcher.
  2. Select the Mods tab, then select Minecraft.
    CurseForge Launcher Mod Browser
  3. Find the modpack that you want to open the folder for in the My Modpacks tab, then click the modpack's icon (not the Play button). For this example, we will be using The Pixelmon Modpack.
    CurseForge Launcher Modpack Browser
  4. Click the settings icon on the right side of the modpack display, then click Open Folder to open the modpack install folder.
