Backup your server files

Before making any changes to your server, it is always recommended to make a backup of your server files in case something goes wrong during the process. You can do this by following this guide.

Change your Minecraft Server Version

1. Navigate to "Versions" on your panel

2. Select the category your want, or

3. Search a Minecraft release or modpack to install in search tab.

4. Select the version you want

5. And click on "REINSTALL" to confirm and begin the installation

6. Click on Play button on the top on the panel to start your server.

If your server doesn't start, try to change Java version from 8 to 17 on "Settings" panel or read console to find what. The versions after 1.17 need Java17 to works, and Java 8 before.

Potential issues

  1. Insufficient memory allocation: Minecraft modpacks require a lot of memory, and if your server plan isn't allocating enough memory, it can cause the game to crash. Make sure that your server plan got enough RAM to run the select modpack.

  2. Conflicting mods: Modpacks often contain multiple mods that may not be compatible with each other. If two mods conflict, it can cause the game to crash. Make sure that the mods you're using are compatible with each other, and try removing any conflicting mods.

  3. Corrupted map files: If a world file is corrupted, it can cause the game to crash.
