How to add a resource pack

Resource packs are useful if you would like to customize how Minecraft looks and feels. Enabling resource packs on a server can enable everyone to have a resource pack

You will need to use an external site to host the resource pack on. You are simply not able to place the resource pack into the server locally. There are services like MCPacks and Dropbox that you are able to use. We will show you how to do it using both services

How to add a Resource Pack using MCPacks



Visit the MCPacks website. Upload the .ZIP to the website by clicking the “Choose File” button.

MCPack Website

Then click the "Upload" button.



Copy the server.properties text box on the right-hand side. It has already filled in the info which you will require.



Head over to the “File Manager” tab and click on the server.properties file

Find the resource-pack line and paste the new text over the old text

Before (resource-pack)

Before (resource-pack-sha1)

After (resource-pack)

After (resource-pack-sha1)

Restart the server. The resource pack is now applied to the server and clients.

How to add a Resource Pack using DropBox



Visit the Dropbox website. This website requires you to create an account. Once created, Upload the .ZIP file to the website by clicking the “Upload” button.



Right-click the file and copy the link to the resource pack.



Once completed, we will need to modify the link:

Before: https://www.dropbox.com/s/<ID>?dl=0
After: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/<ID>?dl=0

Note: Replace <ID> with the DropBox ID of the link you copied before.

Head over to the “File Manager” tab and click on the server.properties file.
