How to add mods to a Valheim server

You need to meet some requirements before you can add mods to your Valheim server:

Have the latest version for both Valheim Plus Mod and Valheim installed from your side.
Have a Valheim Plus Mod server - By default you get a Vanilla server when you purchase the service, so you will need to open a ticket from the following link, and request that we change the server type to Valheim Plus Mod.

Download the mod from Nexus Mods

We must go to the Nexus Mods website and there we will locate the mod to download and then go to the "Files" tab and there we will locate the file (preferably download the latest versions) and then click on the button that says "Manual Download". After that it will take us to another section where we will have to click on the button that says "Slow Download" and set a save location for the mod.

Note: If the mod has any dependency in the list, you will also need to download it and remember that if the mod is compressed, then you will need to extract it to a folder so that you can locate the .dll file.

Installation of the mod on the server

We are going to enter the Control Panel and then select our server and then we are going to go to the "File Manager" tab where we should enter the folder BepInEx -> Plugins, and in that same Plugins folder you should drag the mod from your PC and drop it in the browser page where you have open the Plugins folder and after that you should restart your server.

Note: Remember that the mods always end with .dll extension.

That would be all installation for your server to work with the mods.

Do note that you must have the mods installed on both the server and your client or else it will not allow you to log in to the server or you will experience problems.

If you require any further assistance, please create a ticket here.
