Forge is a Minecraft Mod Loader which enables the use of mods on your Minecraft server. You may want to install a version of Forge that is not already provided in our jar dropdown. If this is the case, you can manually install Forge to the server. There are a few steps to this process, however, we will walk you through each step to ensure a smooth installation.
Resetting the World
When installing a custom Forge version, it is highly recommended to perform a world reset. Doing this ensures there won’t be compatibility issues, especially when you are changing to an older version or if your previous world had mods. You can reset the world by selecting Create New World when changing versions to Custom.
Uploading Forge to the server
Console says Unable to access jarfile /jar/custom.jar
This error might be caused by a variety of reasons. Most of the times, the jar is missing in the jar folder, it was renamed incorrectly, or it was corrupted while uploading. In order to resolve this, head into the FTP File Access tab in your server panel and double check the file is there and named correctly. If after this the issue persists, please repeat the upload process.
Console says Missing libraries or related
Take into account that Forge requires other files in order to function correctly. For these, make sure to also upload these files inside the same jar folder of your server panel. Once added, restart your server and try again.
