How to install workshop mods on your Arma 3 server

In this article, we will be going over the installation and activation of mods for your Arma 3 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.
