How to create server files for a custom modpack

Creating your own custom modpack can be a daunting task. If you're not familiar with the process, we'd heavily recommend you consider using one of the pre-built packs available via the Twitch (Curse) launcher, or the ATLauncher. We have many of these available for installation via One Click Installer, and will also be happy to install any other packs that provide server files - just send us a message!

Starting with Forge

All modpacks begin with Forge. You can install Forge itself like a modpack, by selecting it from the One Click Installer page. It’s usually advised to choose the highest-numbered build among those suggested by your mods’ authors. If you’re using an older version of Minecraft, go with the latest Forge build.

Creating and Uploading

Once you have a version of Forge that will work with your mods, you can move your mods and configurations into their correct positions among the server files. Create a folder called mods (if one does not already exist) in the same location as the forge and minecraft_server files and the libraries folder. Upload all of your mods into this (possibly new) mods folder. Just open the File Manager and click on Upload File. On your computer’s file browser, select everything that you want to upload and drag it into the upload box in File Manager.

Configs, etc.

You may also have custom configuration files to go along with your selection of mods. You can add them to your modpack by copying them into a folder called config at the same location as the mods folder. You will likely have to create the config folder if you have your own config files; it isn’t created for you unless you run the server program.
