How to install any Feed The Beast (FTB) Modpack

We have a video tutorial for installing Feed The Beast:

 

This guide explains how to install any Feed The Beast modpack onto your server.

  1. Find and select the FTB modpack you wish to install at: https://www.feed-the-beast.com/modpacks
  2. Download the server pack to your computer.

  3. Unzip the downloaded file to a folder on your computer (perhaps inside a directory on your desktop).

  4. Run the 'FTBInstall.bat' file if you're using Windows (or FTBInstall.sh on Mac/Linux). This will generate a minecraft_server.jar file which is required for Feed The Beast.

    Run FTBInstall.bat to generate the minecraft_server.jar file required by Feed The Beast.
  5. Rename the "FTBserver-1.12.2-14.23.1.2566-universal.jar" (or similarly named) file to "custom.jar".

    Feed The Beast custom jar file.
  6. Upload the contents of the directory (not the directory itself) to the base directory of your server via FTP. We recommend using FileZilla (FileZilla guide).

    The .bat and .sh files will fail to upload, but don't worry! This is normal and these files are not required.

    Uploading Feed The Beast server modpack files via FileZilla.

  7. On the control panel, set your ‘Server Type’ to the Custom JAR option as seen in the image below:

  8. Start your server. You’re all done and running your FTB (Feed The Beast) modpack of choice.
