1-Click Mod/Server JAR Install

To install any server version/JAR that is not a modpack all you have to do is log into your mc.beastnode.com account, select the server JAR/version you wish to use on the drop down JAR List (such as Vanilla, CraftBukkit, Spigot etc...) and then hit Save at the bottom of the page. The page will refresh to confirm the change - after which you need to restart the server to load up the newly selected server JAR/version!



The mod pack auto installation system is now much simpler to use and will automate most tasks for you. All you have to do is select the mod pack you wish to use from the JAR list, click save at the bottom of the page, then restart your server.

Additional Information:
By default, whenever you select any mod pack from the JAR list in the control panel, the system will automatically delete all the required mod files/folders from your server and will upload the files from the new mod you select in the JAR list, making it a truly 1-click installation. As such, please make sure to save any mod related data you wish to save beforehand.

This is also the case with the MCPC+/Cauldron/KCauldron JARs in the JAR list as well, but it will NOT delete any existing mod folders (other than the libraries folder in the "jar" directory), thus allowing you to install MCPC+/Cauldron after installing your mod pack of choice, effectively making them Bukkit plugin compatible. If you wish to install MCPC+/Cauldron/KCauldron only (and not after having a mod pack already installed) as well as any standard Forge build via the JAR list, simply delete the following folders from your server (if they exist) before selecting the MCPC+/Cauldron/KCauldron/Forge build you want to use and restarting your server:
buildcraft
config
coremods
mods
mod_EE.prop
openperipherals
miscperipherals

Due to the way this updated system works, it may create a set of .bn files in your server's "jar" folder. These files are part of the installer system and basically lets the system know if you changed the JAR selection from one mod pack to another. Deleting these files and restarting your server will basically result in the system reinstalling your mod pack from scratch.
