In order to install a custom Modpack on your Nitrado Minecraft server, you need an FTP client. The most recommended one is Filezilla.

Installation

To perform the installation, you need to follow the following steps:

  • Acquire a clean minecraft.jar file for the proper version here: https://mcversions.net/
  • Create a new directory on your desktop named "Minecraft Server".
  • Paste the previously downloaded minecraft.jar into the folder and execute it.
  • It will create a eula.txt file, open it, change "eula=false" to "eula=true", save the file, and close it.
  • Execute the minecraft.jar again, this time it will actually launch the server.
  • After all necessary files were created close the server.
  • Create another directory on your desktop named "Forge Server".
  • Download the installer of your Modpack here: https://files.minecraftforge.net/
  • After the download is completed execute it.
  • A dialogue should pop up, select Install server and set the server folder to your previously created "Forge Server" folder.

  • If you accept the dialogue two files named "minecraft_server.X.X.X" and "forge-X.X.X-XX.XX.X.XXXX-universal" should be created in your server folder. (Note: X is a placeholder for the version number)
  • Execute the "forge-X.X.X-XX.XX.X.XXXX-universal" file.
  • It will create a eula.txt file, open it, change "eula=false" to "eula=true", save the file, and close it.
  • Execute the "forge-X.X.X-XX.XX.X.XXXX-universal" file again, this time it will actually launch the server.
  • Close the server after all the necessary files are created.
  • Now paste all files from the "Forge Server" to the "Minecraft Server" folder and overwrite duplicates.
  • After that you need to delete some files:
    • banned-ips.txt
    • banned-players.txt
    • ops.txt
    • server.properties.txt
    • white-list.txt/white-list.json (depends on your Minecraft version)
  • Delete the old "minecraft_server.jar" and rename "forge-X.X.X-XX.XX.X.XXXX-universal" to "minecraft_server.jar".
  • Open up Filezilla and connect to your stopped Nitrado Minecraft server.
  • Delete all files in the "minecraft" folder and paste the files and folder from your local server folder in the now empty "minecraft" folder.
  • Restart your Nitrado Minecraft server and stop the server after all necessary files were created.
  • You can now upload your mod via Filezilla. Make sure that the Mod is compatible with your installed Minecraft version.
