Server Running Crash Course

3 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hey everyone. I've been interested in making a server for my custom modpack, but I know next to nothing about what to do, in every aspect. I've been trying to reach out to people via social media for advice, but I haven't gotten much response, so I wanted to reach out here.

 

I *have* looked at the Technic Tutorial for running a server, but as someone who knows minimal about PCs (but can learn) and has an expensive PC that I don't want vulnerable for attacks, I would like some more information just about running servers in general. Like what is a speed for it to be at? Should I go thru a hosting site or not? If so which one? (I'm willing to pay). What do the numbers all even mean? Some of these expect me to know how to upkeep a server but I don't know any coding at all. I can do BBCode okay, but HTML is still a struggle for me. I do understand what RAM is and some basic things, but a lot of it I just want to be sure on and I'm not.

 

What advice/steps would you give to someone who's never run a sever before but is interested in learning?

In order to make a server for Modpack without a ServerPack, please read this tutorial from the Technic Help Site: https://technicpack.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/203799459-How-to-create-a-server-for-your-Platform-modpack

See I was looking over/following that tutorial but this warning at the top

WARNING: Please note that running server software on your computer without a clear understanding of what you are doing may seriously harm your system and lead to vulnerabilities.

Left me very wary and I want to try and learn more about server software and what it does and good tips on RAM, websites to use for hosting, etc, so I don't leave my PC vulnerable, or just heck it up completely.

      anyone know of any good solar panel mods that work with 1.6.4? i tried looking for a 1.6.4 version of my favorite ones but i couldnt find a version of solar flux or solar expansion that were compatible. i would just use industrial craft but im not very fond of eu or their solar panels, i prefer rf and solar fluxs crafting recipes seem a little more like my style. help plz.

      Please help me. I've been stuck on this for days, posting in different websites, and nobody has been able to help me. When i click "install" on any modpack, the process is fine, but when i click play, it installs the "minecraft assets" Slows down at the end of the loading bar, and closes and re-opens within the blink of an eye.
        Everything i've tried :
        Get 64x Java Re-install modpack Re-install Technic Launcher (completely) Updated Graphics card drivers Re-started PC Allocating more RAM to Technic Launcher
       
      My crash log is the ".txt" file i included at the bottom, Don't worry, no viruses lol.
      WARNING : It's a super large crash log. Just sayin'.


       
      PLEASE HELP ME. THIS IS DRIVING ME MENTAL.

      I followed the directions on how to create and publish a new modpack on the Technic Platform, but when I go to download it and play it there are no mods installed not even Forge. I don't understand what I did wrong, I even watched some YouTube videos on how to make and publish a modpack on Technic and followed their instructions, but nothing worked. Please let me know if you can help, I'd prefer it if someone called me on Discord so we could screen share, if not I understand just let me know what to provide to get the help I need. Thank you. My Discord is St.Nibba#6691.

      Hello!
      My problem is the following: I want to make a hexxit server for my friends that I downloaded from technicpack.net, but when I click launch.bat it gives this error code:
      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassCastException: java.base/jdk.internal. loader.ClassLoaders$AppClassLoader cannot be cast to java.base/java.net.URLClass Loader at cpw.mods.fml.relauncher.FMLRelauncher.<init>(FMLRelauncher.java:60) at cpw.mods.fml.relauncher.FMLRelauncher.instance(FMLRelauncher.java:52) at cpw.mods.fml.relauncher.FMLRelauncher.handleServerRelaunch(FMLRelauncher.java:45) at net.minecraft.server.MinecraftServer.main(MinecraftServer.java:1367) What can I do about this? I got the latest Java version.
