Having mods or plugins is an excellent way to bring excitement to your Minecraft server. While mods and plugins are both great, by default they are not compatible with each other. If you want mods on your server, you won’t be able to use plugins and vise versa. There may be some features you want your server to have that you can’t find any mods for, or you may want to add some features that don’t require installation client side. With Cauldron, you can have both. While this is a great way to have both mods and plugins, it is only compatible with Minecraft 1.7.10 and 1.6.4. With a few steps, you can install Cauldron onto your Minecraft server and we will show you how.
For servers running 1.7.10, it’s recommended to use Thermos as it introduced many performance improvements compared to Cauldron 1.7.10. You can find a guide on installing Thermos here.
Downloading the plugin
Uploading to the server
Server is crashing after adding Cauldron
If your server is crashing after you add Cauldron, it may be that you are using some mods that are not compatible with it. Some of the main known mods that don’t work with Cauldron are MobiusCore, FastCraft, and Opis. If you find any of these in the mods folder, it’s best to delete them.
Plugins not working
If you have added plugins and they don’t work, you need to check a few things. Make sure that they are the correct version for the Cauldron you chose, they are in the plugins folder and not the mods folder or another directory, and that you aren’t missing dependency plugins.
Server is stuck loading
Many times when modifying the server, the server will need to be confirmed before it will fully start. This happens a lot especially when you remove or add mods. Most of the time in the console, you will see Missing Mod Id’s errors. All you need to do to resolve this is type /fml confirm in the console.
