Once your server is running Forge, you should notice a mods folder. This is where you will add your mods to. Though when you add mods, you will need to be sure that the mod supports your server version.

There are two ways you can upload mods to your server. You can you the built in file manager under the FTP File Access or you are able to use an FTP client.

You can only upload files that are 16MB or below in size.

Log into the File Manager by entering your control panel password on the Multicraft Password textbox and clicking the Login button.

From the left sidebar, click Upload.

On the upload page, click on the List button. A popup should appear with a list of directories. Double-click the mods directory, then click Choose.

Once you have selected the mods directory, click the Choose File button under the Files section.

Locate and select the mod you want to install then click Submit.

If the upload is successful, you should get a message similar to the one shown below.

Once the mods are uploaded, you can boot up the server. Though we do suggest starting the server on a new world for the mods.
