How to install Workshop 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 Steam Workshop:
Step 1: Log into your game control panel.
Step 2: Click on the Steam Workshop icon located on the left-hand side of your panel
Step 3: Find the mods that you would like to install and click install. A workshop collection can also be used.
Step 4: Once installed, open your Commandline Manager from within your panel. Edit your custom command line. Most mods will go in the -Mods parameter, some will need to go in the -servermods parameter. (The mod will typically indicate if it needs to be a server mod)
Step5: 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 6: Save the Commandline and click Select on the right-hand side.
 
Manual method (old, not recommended):
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.
