- A registered account on the EnviroMC platform
- An active EnviroMC server
- The desired CurseForge modpack
Step 1: Download the Modpack
- Go to https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/modpacks and search for the modpack you want to install.
- Click on the modpack's page and select the "Files" tab.
- Locate the appropriate version of the modpack for your Minecraft version and click the download icon on the right side to download the modpack's zip file.
Step 2: Access Your EnviroMC Server's File Manager
- Log in to your EnviroMC account.
- Navigate to the "My Servers" section and click on the server you want to install the modpack on.
- Click on the "File Manager" button to access the server's files.
Step 3: Stop Your Server Before making any changes to your server files, it's essential to stop the server to prevent corruption or loss of data.
- Go to your server's control panel in EnviroMC.
- Click the "Stop" button to stop the server.
Step 4: Install the Modpack
- In the server's File Manager, locate and open the "mods" folder. If there isn't one, create a new folder named "mods."
- Click the "Upload" button and select the modpack zip file you downloaded earlier.
- Once the upload is complete, select the zip file and click "Extract" to extract the contents of the modpack into the "mods" folder. You should see a list of mods and any additional files, such as configuration files, required for the modpack.
- If the modpack has additional folders or files that need to be placed elsewhere, follow the modpack's installation instructions to ensure everything is set up correctly.
Step 5: Configure Server Properties (if necessary) Some modpacks require specific settings in the server.properties file to function correctly. Consult the modpack's documentation for any necessary changes and update the server.properties file in the File Manager accordingly.
Step 6: Start Your Server
- Return to your server's control panel in EnviroMC.
- Click the "Start" button to restart the server with the newly installed modpack.
- Give the server some time to load, as modpacks can take longer to start up than a vanilla Minecraft server.
Conclusion: You've successfully installed a CurseForge modpack on your EnviroMC server. Now you can connect to your server using the Minecraft client and enjoy your modded Minecraft experience. Remember to always back up your server files before making significant changes, and keep your mods up to date for optimal performance and stability.
