How to Set Up Manually a Technic Launcher Modpack

This guide will show you how to download a modpack from Technic Launcher and install it on your server.

๐Ÿ”Œ Downloading Files ๐Ÿ”Œ

To get the server files for the Technic Launcher modpack you want to set up, you will have to:

Go to the Technic Launcher page here and search for the desired modpack.

Click on Server Download and save it on your machine.

Server Download

If the modpack does not provide a server pack, you will have to create it from your client files as our guide says here.

๐Ÿ”ฉ Installing the Modpack ๐Ÿ”ฉ

Now, let's install the modpack on your server:

Create a new folder called jar in the server pack folder you just downloaded.


Rename the jar file with the same name as the modpack to one of the following, depending on the Java version you want to use:

custom-java16.jar - for any modpack running on the 1.17 Minecraft version
custom-java11.jar - for any modpack running on versions between 1.13 and 1.16
custom-java8.jar - for any modpack running on a version lower than 1.13 (1.12, 1.11, etc.)

Place the files you just renamed in the previous step, as well as the minecraft_server.jar and libraries folder, inside your new jar folder.

Remove any files with the .bat or .sh extensions. They don't need to be uploaded to the server.

Use FileZilla to delete everything from your server.

Our FileZilla guide can be found here.

Upload all the files you prepared to your server using FileZilla.

Our FileZilla guide can be found here.

Change the server type in your Multicraft control panel to custom-java8.jar, custom-java11.jar, or custom-java16.jar depending on how you named the forge.versionnumber.jar in step number 2, then click on Save at the bottom of the page.

Server Type

Here is our guide for changing your server type.

Start the server!
