How to install mods on your DayZ server

In this article, we will be going over the installation and activation of mods for your DayZ server hosted by Host Havoc.

Automated method featuring our built-in Workshop Mod Handler:
Step 1: Log into your game control panel.
Step 2: Gather the Workshop mod IDs of the mods you wish to install. This is shown at the end of the mod URL.
 
 
Step 3: Open the Workshop Mod Handler utility in the game control panel.
Step 4: Separated by commas (no spaces), enter the mod IDs into the text field and run the function. For example: 123456789,987654321,123456789
Step 5: View the game service and open the Command Line Manager and create a new custom command line.
Step 7: Edit your custom command line. Most mods will go in the -mods parameter, some will need to go in the -servermods parameter.
Step 8: Enter the mod folder names separated by semi-colons (;). For example, if you wanted to load three mods with the names @MyMod1, @MyMod2, and @MyMod3, you'd set the text field to:
@MyMod1;@MyMod2;@MyMod3;
Step 10: Save the Commandline and click Select on the right-hand side.
 
Manual (old method):
Step 1: Set up an FTP client, we recommend using FileZilla. Refer here.
Step 2: Download the mod/addon pack that you wish to install.
Step 3: Connect to your server's FTP. 
Step 4: Drag and drop the addon folder (name must start with an @ symbol) to your root (base) directory in FileZilla or whichever FTP client you are using.
Step 5: Log into your game control panel.
Step 6: View the game service and open the Commandline Manager.
Step 7: If you have not already, click on the Custom Commandlines tab and create a new custom Commandline.
Step 8: Edit your custom command line. Most mods will go in the -Mods parameter, some will need to go in the -servermods parameter.
Step 9: Enter the mod folder names separated by semi-colons (;). For example, if you wanted to load three mods with the names @MyMod1, @MyMod2, and @MyMod3, you'd set the text field to:
@MyMod1;@MyMod2;@MyMod3;
Step 10: Save the Commandline and click Select on the right-hand side.
