Extract the downloaded zip file, then open your FTP client. Connect to your server, and delete the ServerStart.bat or as you do not need them.

Upload the FTB Server jar. Rename the jarfile to either "permgen.jar" or "ftb.jar" and then upload. Set your server to run on that jar. ( Use the following guide for a brief summery on how to upload and set your server jar:   Remember to press SAVE. )

Step 4.

Upload Libraries.

     If you are running a FTB modpack minecraft version 1.5.2 or earlier, upload ALL sub folders to the root of your server (mods, coremods, and config folders).

     If you are running a FTB modpack minecraft version 1.6.4 or later, upload the 'libraries' folder into the 'jar' folder (where your ftb.jar server jar is located), and other sub folders to the root of your server (mods and config folders).

Step 5.


After uploading all server files, start your server.
