This article contains a compilation of guides that explain how to install any server type you wish.
Before getting started, it's important to know how to set or change a server type or version for your server: How to Set / Change Server Type
The above procedure will be be used for all server types listed below and will only vary which option to select from the Server Type menu on the panel based on your preference.
If you're switching from a Vanilla version of the game to a Modded version, or vice versa, we'd really recommend you start with a full server reset. This will wipe your server files entirely, so if you want to keep a copy of your existing server, you can download it to your PC.
Note: We have a 1-click modpack installer with lots of popular modpacks on the control panel, this guide is for any modpacks or server types not on the installer. To find the installer in Multicraft, click 'Files' > 'Modpack installer'. Choose your modpack from the dropdown and hit 'apply' and start the server. We also recommend you do a full server reset in advance, as outlined above. If you still require assistance with this, we have a separate guide on how to use our 1-click modpack installer!
Note: Don't know which modpack you want to use? Check out our list of the best modpacks of all time, all available on our 1-click modpack installer!
Where is the "Server Type" drop down menu located?
This is located on the main control panel page for your server, on the same page with the Start/Stop/Restart buttons - just scroll down! The image below shows what this looks like.
Hint: Search by pressing Ctrl + F (or Command + F on Mac).
