    See post 4 for solution.

    Hey all,

    I'm trying to get BukkitForge working with a Direwolf20 modpack server hosted on I'm sure the problem is similar to other dedicated 'craft hosts: the automated console doesn't give me much any information on why BukkitForge will not work.

    First up: about the system:

    I'm hosted on with the GameCP console. No clue what OS. Since a .jar is uploaded, it could be either Windows or Linux, but I suspect it's a VPS running some version of Linux. We have a 5 GB SSD and 1 GB RAM.
    We are currently running with FTB Direwolf20 v.5.0.1 . Or at least the server version that was downloaded when that was the current client. I have to change the .jar file's name for it to work with beastnode's startup script.
    It is strictly stock, except that I have installed the Forge port of dynmap. No other mods were installed.

    Now, the issue:

    When I put the .jar into the coremods/ folder, the server refuses to start up, and nothing is printed to the provided console. My server.log is also bereft of any useful information.

    Conversely, when I start up the server without the BukkitForge jar, all I get is:
    2013-02-21 04:54:10 [INFO] Starting minecraft server version 1.4.7
    and then it silently sits for 6 minutes, finally providing the following:

    I get none of this after over half an hour of waiting with the BukkitForge jar in coremods/. Maybe I'm being impatient, but I doubt it. Not even a message saying the server is starting.

    Clearly, the first step is to get more information about what is going on with the server, but I'm new to this admin thing and I'm not sure what my next steps should be.

    Has anyone gotten BukkitForge to work with a Direwolf20 server on a hosted system that does not allow manual config (or even knowledge of the contents) of the start-up script? Is there a debugging tool or some flag hidden somewhere I can set to get more detail in the server.log file?

    Thank you in advance.

    I personally run a Mindcrack pack server but, if you are having issues I would recommend trying to see if your bukkitforge is up to date. By this I mean maybe try installing a bunch of different ones or doing a bit of research and trying to find what BukkitForge version goes with the DireWolf20 pack.

    Good Luck,

    Is there somewhere where I can find the actual version of Forge that is included in a given release? That is, in the Direwolf20 modpack?

    Found it

    Edited for clarity, then again because I answered my own question.

    The problem ended up being the host (beastnode), which blocked BukkitForge's attempts to download additional libraries. The solution was to set up the server's files locally and then upload them to the host.
