How to setup your server to use Mods and Plugins

In the past, it was not possible to use plugins on Modded Minecraft servers, as they are not made to work together. However, thanks to other server softwares like Mohist, which supports the use of Forge mods and Spigot Plugins, and Arclight, which supports Spigot plugins and either Forge, NeoForge or Fabric mods. Though Arclight has only begun developing softwares for NeoForge and Fabric recently since 1.20.4. This guide will explain how to install and make use of Mohist or Arclight

Warning: You may experience crashes and odd bugs when running your server on Mohist/Arclight, since mods and plugins were not made to work together. Also, if you are converting your server from Modded Minecraft to use Mohist/Arclight instead. We would recommend creating a backup of the server before switching server softwares.

Locate the Versions tab on the left side of the Control Panel.

Select the View Builds button on either Mohist or Arclight.

Click on the Install button for the Minecraft version that you want to use.

Select the Build of the software that you want to use, and optionally, whether you want to delete all of the files on the server before installing the server software. Then once you have selected the build, you can click on the Install button to install the selected server software.
