How to Install Datapacks on Your Server

This guide will show you how to set up datapacks on your server.

❓ What Are Datapacks ❓

Datapacks are ZIP files that can customize your Minecraft experience. They can be used to add/remove/change advancements, loot, structures, recipes, etc without the code modification that mods do.

Datapacks have only been implemented in Minecraft recently, so they only work on Minecraft 1.13.x+. Make sure to check if the datapack you want to use works on the newest Minecraft versions!

📜 Find Your Datapack 📜

To set up a datapack on your server you need to first find one. You can use our Datapack Installer to search for it (recommended) or you can manually find one to install.

NOTE: This is a good source to find datapacks to install manually.

🔩 How to Install a Datapack 🔩

You can use our Datapack Installer to set up your datapack or do it manually.

💠 The Datapack Installer

To set up your datapack using our installer please do the following:

Log in to your Multicraft panel here and stop your server.

Click on Installers, then on Datapack Installer.

Click on the datapack you want, then click Install, and start your server.

That's how to install a datapack using our installer.

💠 Setting Up Manually

To install a Datapack manually you'll need to download the file and upload it using your server's FTP. Please follow these steps:

Log in to your Multicraft panel here and stop your server.

Click on Files, then on FTP File Access, and log in.

Open your current world folder.

This folder might not be called `world`! The world folder name will be the same world name that is on your main server page.

Open the datapacks folder (which is located in your world folder).

On the bottom left, click upload, upload your datapack, then start your server.

A Datapack is a ZIP file! Do not extract it! Leave the ZIP file itself in your world's datapacks folder.

That's how to install a datapack manually.

📝 Find Your Installed Datapacks 📝

To see all the datapacks installed on your server, follow these steps:

Log in to your Multicraft panel here.

Click on Installer, then on Datapack List.

Here you will find a list of all the datapacks you installed.

If you have any issues setting up a datapack please feel free to contact us on live chat or via the ticket system.
