I've tried putting the .cfg's in the config folder in the server folder, created a .bat file, put the mods in the server's mod folder, put the mods in my mod folder, the server works just fine other than the modded blocks disappearing, no lag or glitches, all of the vanilla items can be placed, and everyone who is trying to play have all of the correct mods and they are all in the mods folder in .minecraft. It IS a modded server. I got it from forge.
(Sorry to the people who don't think about the basic things but I'm pretty sure at least one person would have given a simple answer so I am trying to avoid that)
Maybe you're running the vanilla server.
You must download "forge installer", and if you already have it, open it and choose the "server" option, after, choose like destiny the folder where your server is.
After, two exe files "server" will be installed in the folder.
You should always run the "minecraftforgeuniversal-etc" exe file to make working the mods.
Guys, we are running a forge server. All the mods are placed in the server's mods folder, everyone has the mods required, and the .cfg files are in the server's config files, also. The only problem we are having is that when trying to place modded blocks, they immediately disappear from both my inventory and from the block on which it was placed. I did go to the forge website and made sure that I downloaded the installer version. I installed both the server and the client needed and it was the correct version for all of the mods.
And to solve any confusion, I am Captaineagle1's friend who actually owns the server, not just a random person.
I KNOW THIS IS HOLY STALE THREAD BATMAN, but this is the first place i've found that explained clearly why I couldnt get my mods to run on the forge minecraft server. so it's worth keeping for reference.
grimallc, thank you for humoring me. i now got my modded forge minecraft server working. i wasn't calling the universal server, but was calling the vanilla server that is distributed with forge. seems simplisticly stupid, but i was beating my head against a wall for a few hours.
Note to anyone else having this problem, you need to have the vanilla minecraft server in the same folder as the universal server that you are executing via the java command. and if you're running linux, you probably will have to run the universal server with a sudo command, unlike the vanilla. i dont know why the universal server needs sudo permission and the vanilla doesnt, but at this point i dont care lol.
