Adding and running a Mod

Once you've downloaded your Arma 3 Mod, first you will need to get the mod on the server.

In this tutorial I will be using an example mod called @A3mod.

The best way to upload the mod to your server is to use an FTP client.

You need to login to the ACP (

2) locate your servers FTP address on the control panel homepage:

FTP location

3) upload the @mod to the main directory of the server's FTP address. I use the FTP client called FileZilla. Fill in the username and password with the information you received in your email.

Your root directory should looks something like this;


Next we need to get the server to run the mod.

Navigate to the CommandLine Manager.

2) Click New.

Command line manager location

3) Now we need to fill in the list.

-Set up a description with a name based on the mods your using.

Tick the Mod box, in the text field add the folder name of the mod your using e.g. @A3mod;
If your using multiple mods add a semicolon after each mod ( ; ) e.g. @A3mod;@A3mod2;

Tick the mission to select the mission the server will start with, or use the mission cycle located in the config files, (instructions located in the 'Adding and running a mission' Knowlage base article).

Note: Remember that most mods require players who join your server to also have the mods installed, so you might want to mention that in the server title.
