I recently setup a 1.7.10 modded server (using mcpro) that we have been playing on for a few days now. I wanted to add forge essentials ( version 188.8.131.521 for MC 1.7.10) to use the permission system.
After adding the jar to the mods file of the server, it created the forgeessentials directory in the server root. I also copied it to the mods folder. When trying to access the perm commands in game, they weren't there. I am wondering if I did not install it correctly, or if I have to change some config so the perms are accessible.
