Got a question. i've looked everywhere on how to make a forge server and i got two answers. 1) place mods in minecraft server jar. 2) use ur server's control panel. answer one i have tried but nothing happens but then when i think about it, i dont even know what they mean by placing mod in minecraft server jar and the people that were giving tutorials had horrible directions. and answer two i cant do due to all server control panels require paying for them and im not doin that. now i must know, but is it actually possible to host a forge server without the use of a control panel?
Please don't PM me to ask for help or to join your mod development team. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future. I'm not interested in developing mods with people.
