How to Configure Mods on your tModLoader Server

Being able to configure mods allows you to remove or alter any gameplay changes that your mods may affect. This can be done via editing a mods config.json.

Important: Not every mod has server-side configuration, unfortunately not all mods document this either. Once you have loaded a mod to your server it will generate the config file, if there is no file available then it does not support configuration.

Configuring Mod Files

Before you can proceed, you must install your mods first.

  1. Access your control panel and Stop your server.
  2. Access your server files via FTP.
  3. Navigate to /.local/share/Terraria/tModLoader/ModConfigs.
  4. Within this folder, you will find the available configuration files for your installed mods.
  5. To edit these, right-click any file and select View/Edit.
  6. Make changes to the file, save and close the file.
  7. FileZilla will give you an automatic pop-up asking you to upload the file back to FTP, ensure you select Finish editing and delete local file and click Yes.
  8. Start your server.
