How to Install Any Server Type (Clean Installation)

Over time, with so many constructions, mods, or even plugins, everything starts to get heavy. Or when you want to play a different modpack from our list but still cannot because the server does not start with several illegible, unreadable errors.

That is the moment when you should do a clean install of the new server type you want to use. This process will delete all files from the server and will then set up the new server type you selected.

If you change between our server types (especially between modpacks' servers) you need to do a clean installation which WILL DELETE ALL YOUR SERVER FILES (INCLUDING BACKUPS). We recommend doing a file backup using FileZilla before undergoing this process.

Here is our guide on how to use FileZilla

🔬 How to Do a Clean Installation 🔬
