This guide explains how to install any Forge mods onto your Minecraft server.

  1. First of all, your server must be running Forge to use mods. You can view our tutorial for installing Forge here: How to install Minecraft Forge

  2. Download any mods you wish to install from
    Make sure the mods you download are compatible with the version of Forge you have installed!

  3. Upload your mods to the /mods directory of your server files via FTP. We recommend using FileZilla (FileZilla guide).

  4. Restart your server to complete the install of your mods.
Remember: For most mods, you will also need to install them on your own computer (you will need to be running the Minecraft Forge client on your own computer, with the correct mods installed to connect to a modded Forge server)
