Configuring and managing your server

How to Upload Mods and Plugins

Installing a Minecraft plugin or mods is a great way to add new functionality to your Minecraft server. Plugins/Mods are essentially software modules that can be added to a Minecraft server to enhance gameplay, add new features, and improve performance.

Make sure that the plugin or mods you want to install is compatible with the version of Minecraft that your server is running. Plugins and Mods can be version-specific, so it's important to choose a plugin or mods that matches the version of Minecraft that you're running.

Once you've found a plugin/mod that's compatible with your server's version of Minecraft, download the plugin/mod to your computer.

Keep in mind that some plugins and mods may require additional configuration or setup before they can be used. Be sure to read the mod or plugin's documentation or instructions to ensure that you've set it up correctly. Also, make sure to back up your server files before installing any new mod or plugins, just in case something goes wrong during the installation process.
