Install Forge ModLoader (FML) on MCProHosting’s Multicraft
Getting Your Server Ready
- Login to your MCProHosting account. The section that you manage your account in is called multicraft.mcprohosting.com.
- Click on MY SERVER and click the STOP button. Wait a moment while the server stops.
- Scroll down the page and look for the JAR section. The filename might be called something like ‘previous_server.jar’
- Change the name to ‘custom.jar’ and SAVE.
- The screen should change to show something like CUSTOM JAR and a DISABLE button.
Getting Forge ModLoader (FML)
- Download the Forge Installer from http://files.minecraftforge.net/. Look for the 1.6.4-Recommended version on the (Installer) link. You’ll see it when you get over there.
- Save that file to your computer then open the file. If you are on a PC you might have to right-click and choose open with JAVA. On a Mac you can just click it.
- Choose Install Server and set a directory to where to put the files. Make it something easy to remember like on your Desktop called Forge Server.
- Now go get Filezilla ready.
Getting Files from your Computer to your Server
- Download and install Filezilla. This is an FTP Client. FTP = File Transfer Protocol.
- Once it is setup you will connect to it using your credentials from your multicraft server.
- Click the left column for FILES. Then click FTP File Access.
- You’ll see the credentials
HOST (the IP address of your server)
PORT (should be 21)
FTP Username (should be Name:Number)
Password (whatever you chose)
- Enter those into the top row of Filezilla and press QuickConnect
- In the left window navigate to the place that you installed the Forge Server files. (Was it your desktop?)
- In the right window you will see the files on the server.
- In the left window you will see 3 files:
LIBRARIES (a folder)
- Rename the MINECRAFTFORGE_UNIVERSAL to CUSTOM.JAR by right clicking on the name
- Now highlight and drag all the files from the left side (your computer) to the right side (the server).
- Wait while all the files upload.
- Once filezilla has finished loading those files go ahead and START the server in your multicraft dashboard.
- Wait about 10 seconds and the server will booted and the installation of Forge will be complete.
- In Filezilla’s right window right click and REFRESH.
- You should now see a folder called MODS
- Now that you have Forge setup on your server you can drag files to the /MODS folder on the server.
- Download your mods from your favorite place and then drag them to the /MODS folder on the server.
- Note – read the installation instructions for the mods. Sometimes you need to unzip that first zipped file to get to the goods.
