Modding a server

Me and several of my friends have invested in one of your starbound servers as hosting the server ourselves was proving unreliable however we run several mods from the steam workshop, We want to carry these over to the server but are unsure how to do this.

When running mods on servers in the past we have simply copied the mods to the mods folder on the server and that is that. When doing this via FTP for this server however the server stops working.

Are we doing this incorrectly?/ is this even possible with your servers?

Hm, I appear to be having the same issue. Just dropped the mods into the mod folder and.. well, the server stopped running. Tried restarting several times.

We can install Workshop mods onto your server for you if you open a support ticket from within your account by going to:

If you would like to install the Workshop mods yourself, you can add the .pak file(s) into the following directory via FTP:

We recommend renaming the 'content.pak' file to the *Workshop_mod_ID*.pak.

We also recommend going to Options in the main menu and enabling 'Allow Mismatch' to prevent any server errors.

Thanks, Support Team
