How to install Cauldron onto your server

Cauldron allows you to run both Forge mods and Craftbukkit plugins on your Minecraft server. Installing Cauldron consists of downloading the installer and installing a server locally on your computer, then uploading the generated/downloaded files to your server via FTP.

The steps are as follows:
Step 1: Determine the version of Minecraft you plan on running (this will depend on the mods you're running, etc.). Most mods & mod packs will display the necessary version.
Step 2: Visit this page and download the installer, server and CauldronBukkit for the respective version of Minecraft that you want to run on the server.
Step 3: Run the installer JAR file and install it to a folder somewhere on your computer. We generally suggest doing it somewhere on your Desktop.
Step 4: Run the installer 2 more times to ensure that all library files are downloaded; it will sometimes miss a few.
Step 5: Place the other files that you downloaded from Mae's web page and place them in the same folder that you installed the server to.
Step 7: Upload all of the contents from that folder to your server.
Step 8: In our Multicraft control panel, set the JAR file to the exact name of the JAR that appears as such: cauldron-VERSION...-server.jar
Step 9: Start the server. You're all set.
