How to Add and Enable Mods to your Terraria Server (tModLoader)

How to Add and Enable Mods to your Terraria Server (tModLoader)

Launch the game using tModLoader.

Select "Mods" from the main menu.

At the bottom of the menu, select "Open Mods Folder".

Login to the server using SFTP to access your server files

If you do not know how to use SFTP, there is a article available here.

Upload the contents from the client-side mods folder into the server-side mods folder.

Using SFTP, go to the "mods" folder and create a new file called enabled.json

Inside the enabled.json file, you are going to add 2 brackets that will allow you to enable the mods you upload to the server. Please have a look at the syntax below for an example:

For every mod you are installing, they need to be separated by a ( , ). An example is attached below for you to follow when you're installing more than one mod, if you are installing one mod then you do not need the comma at the end.

Save and Restart the server to enable the mods installed.
