Do you want to add mods to your Minehut server? If so, we will explain the exact steps you need to follow.

Minecraft mods can completely change the game and can create a brand new experience, so it’s worth trying them. But, playing modded Minecraft with friends is extremely fun, so it’s useful to know how to add mods to a Minehut server.

Also, we have a full video on this which you can watch at the bottom of the page.

Lets get right in to this!

Add mods to Minecraft

If you want to join a Minecraft server which has mods installed, you need to have the mods installed on your computer as well.

1. Download and install Forge

Firstly, you need to download and install Forge.

Forge is an add-on for Minecraft which allows for mods to be added and used.

The version of Forge you download is very important, because everything needs to match up.

For example, if you download Forge for Minecraft 1.17.1, then the mods you download will need to be 1.17.1 as well and the server needs to be running on 1.17.1.

But, don’t worry because we will explain all of the steps.

When you start the download for Forge, you may be taken to an ad wall.

Be very careful with what you click on, as they’re may be dangerous links.

Wait for the “Skip Ad” button in the top right to become available, which is usually after 5 seconds.

Now, Forge should be downloading to your computer.

Once Forge has been downloaded, click on the installer.

A window called “Mod system installer” should open up.

However, if nothing happens or something else opens, this is because you don’t have Java installed.

So, go to and click on the download button. Once it has finished downloading, open the installer and follow the instructions. It’s very easy.

Now, Java is installed. right click on the Forge installer and tap on “Open with”.

Forge is now installed on your computer.

2. Download and install mods on to Minecraft

Secondly, you need to download and install the mods you would like on your server, on to Minecraft on your computer first.

If there is a specific mod you would like, then you can search for it and make sure you search for the Forge version you have installed as well (Minecraft version).

Or, if you want to browse for mods, then you could check out

We wanted the Just Enough Items (JEI) mod for Minecraft, so we found it on PlanetMinecraft and went to the files section. Then, we had to scroll back until we found the version of the mod for Minecraft 1.17.1 because as we previously mentioned, everything needs to be the same version.

So, download the mod you would like.

Next, you need to install the mod on to Minecraft.

So, on your keyboard, press the Windows key (the windows logo) and “R” at the same time.

This will open up the Run window.

You can type in the name of a program, folder, document or internet resource, and Windows will open it for you.

You need to type in “%appdata%”.

Then, press “Ok”.

Now, you will be taken to your Roaming folder.

So, click on “.minecraft” which should be one of the first folders.

Look for a folder titled “mods”, if you cannot see one, then you need to create a new folder and call it “mods”.

To create a new folder, right click on some empty space, then click on “New” from the menu, and then “Folder”.

Next, you need to drag the mod you downloaded in to the mods folder.

You have successfully installed a mod on Minecraft!
