Do you want to host a modded fabric server from your own PC? The following guide, will show you how!
Fabric allows users to install mods that add to, or change, vanilla Minecraft.
1 – Create a new folder for your fabric server files, and open it.
2 – Double click the fabric installer to open it.
3 – Click “Server”
4 – Choose your desired version from the drop down and choose the folder you created earlier.
5 – Click “Install” and wait for the install to finish. You will then see a screen similar to this:
6 – Click Download server jar
7 – Once it’s downloaded, click Generate then Done
8 – Browse to your server folder, right click start.bat and click edit. Paste the text below into the file then save and exit.
java -Xmx1G -jar fabric-server-launch.jar nogui
- 1G is the amount of RAM your server can use, in GB’s . Increase the number to use more ram.
9 – Open your fabric server folder and double click start.bat and close the window when prompted.
10 – Open eula.txt and change “eula=false” to “eula=true” and save the file.
12 – Finally, double click start.bat to launch your fabric server.
You have now installed your fabric server and it’s running. To connect to it, from the same PC, use localhost in the minecraft server address field.
Giving your friends access to the server.
Now that the server is up and running, you need to port forward the servers port to your PC. Head over to portforward.com and search for your router for step by step instructions. When asked, the port that needs to be forwarded is 25565.
After you have forwarded port 25565 your Minecraft server will be available on publicIP:25565. You can find your public IP on whatsmyip.org.
