vanilla server: https://minecraft.net/download

 

BTeam server: http://www.technicpack.net/attack-of-the-bteam

 

Read the pages, find the links.  Generally, you just unzip the file and run the launch.bat file.  You can configure the properties and config files if you know what you're doing.  You can change launch.bat to adjust memory settings.  And you'll want the latest Java update installed (for best performance on a 64-bit machine, be sure to have 64-bit Java).

how do i do the properties and the config files

Once you extract everything, run it once and let the DOS window scroll through all the downloads and various installs/messages.  Don't be worried about error messages, as there are typically a lot of those no matter what you do (it's all related to how mods interact and doesn't necessarily cause a break).  Once it seems to stabilize and nothing more is showing up, type STOP to stop the server and press Enter.

 

Go to the folder where you installed the server and you should see a properties file (server.properties).  You can edit it with any text editor.  You can add player handles to the ops.txt file if you want to Op them, you can add names to the white-list.txt file so that only names that you allow have server access (but you have to set "white-list=true" in the server.properties file to enable this).  The basics of server properties can be read here: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Server.properties

 

The config files don't need to be changed.  But as you get used to managing a server you may want to enable or disable specific features of mods, and that's where you would do it.  Even if you're just curious, it's pretty educational to see all the info mentioned in the config files.

 

After you've edited the properties as you choose, then restart the server.  You might even be able to edit the properties before running the server once...  I just don't recall if it shows up first or not.

Here's mine, straight out of the file.  But it should all be configured for you as part of the download, unless you know you want to change something I'd leave it alone.

 

The only one that I'd suggest changing is the level-name, just to make it a name you want for your world.  You don't need to enter a server IP usually.

 

*******************************

 

generator-settings=
op-permission-level=4
allow-nether=true
level-name=<your choice here>
enable-query=false
allow-flight=true
server-port=25565
level-type=BIOMESOP
max_minion_spawn=-1
enable-rcon=false
force-gamemode=false
level-seed=
server-ip=

You normally don't fill that field out, it is only to bind it to a specific IP

As long has you have port forwarded correctly (google) people can connect to the server via your external IP

Right so in your server properties it will say something like "server-ip= " In that spot you need to put the internal ip that your computer connects to in your LAN (Local Area Network.) Here is how you find it in windows. Hit the Win button and R at the same time. Type in "cmd" and press enter. Then when it brings up the command prompt, type in "ipconfig" Your looking for your IPv4 it should look something like this 192.168.0.X. Put that value into the config file for your server as such "server-ip=192.168.1.X" After you do this the next step will be to set up Port Forwarding, You should be able to connect to your server now by one of these ways. In MC where its says server IP put in "192.168.1.X" or "192.168.1.X:25565" or "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" one of these will allow you to connect. For a friend to join using this method it will have to be on your LAN. If they are some where else connecting you will have to set up Port Forwarding which once again I'd be happy to help with. Let me know if you have questions.

i know but i dont know the server ip

You shouldn't even need to fill out that field.

 

People connecting to a server need to know either the internal IP of that computer (if they're on your LAN) or the external IP of your router (if they're connecting via the web).  If you're playing on LAN then you need to figure out your computer's IP...  check your router or open a DOS prompt and type 'ipconfig' to get a readout.  If you want someone to connect from the web then you'll need the external IP by logging into your router -- and you'll need to set up port forwarding.

 

If this is getting too complicated for you, you might want to do more reading on IP addresses and port forwarding.

      I'm new to Technic, and I'm trying to join a server with a modpack that runs on 1.12.2, but when I open the modpack through the Technic launcher it says that I need Forge to open some of the mods.
      I downloaded Forge for 1.12.2, but you have to open it through the Minecraft launcher. Which means I can't use the modpack through Forge or Technic.
      I've tried looking through launcher settings to see if I could tell Technic to open the modpack with the Forge version that I downloaded. Doesn't work. Other people seem to get on the server fine. Is this a problem with me, or the modpack?
      Edit: I've attached a photo showing the messages I get when I try to use both launchers. The photo was too large to attach, so I decided to use the URL, but it's on TinyPic, so if you don't see it, it's probably because they're shutting down.

      Okay, so I have reinstalled technic a few days ago because I wanted to play a dragon ball mod I saw. I played dragon block c resurrection (only listing names because I feel like it may be important) and a few others mods and I got attached to a server mod, and it worked for a bit, but now, it is the only mod that works. I tried resurrection again and when I press play it will just hide the launcher for a bit and then re-open it. I have downloaded the 64-bit java recently so that may be the result, but currently no mods work besides the server mod (dragon block zero S if it really is important.) Im new to technic and forums over all, so im not sure how to attack files fully so if you need me to do that, please tell me how!

      When i put the mods in the server don't crash because of that, when i try to open I don't even receive a crash log, then i go to the last try log and it says that my port is already in use
      I used the default server port
