Choose the Feed The Beast option that matches your package fom the Server JAR selection list

  1. On the Server Control Panel, choose the Feed The Beast option (that matches the pack you installed) from the JAR file Selection drop-down menu
  2. Click the 'Save' button at the bottom
  • If your server fails to start, it may be because the server JAR is named ftbserver.jar. If this is the case then choose the general FTB option from the drop-down

Rename the ftbserver.jar to the correct servername

Each modded server requires the server name to match the one in the control panel.

  1. Using FTP you rename the ftbserver.jar to the server.jar name
  2. If you have downloaded and installed ultimate you rename ftbserver.jar to ultimate.jar
    These are what you should rename the server jar to for each mod pack.
