🔧 Using plugins with BepInEx
To use BepInEx* compatible plugins in Valheim you first need to install Valheim Plus on your server. You can make this change for free, here you can find a tutorial: Game Change.
ATTENTION: Valheim Plus must also be installed on your PC. Here you can find the download for Valheim Plus: Valheim Plus Download.
🖥️ Installing plugins on your server
IMPORTANT: The plugins used here must be BepInEx compatible. Plugins for uMod for example will not work there!
You can usually see information about the compatibility when downloading a plugin.
To install mods on your Valheim Plus server you first have to connect to it via FTP, how to do that you can read here: FTP file access. There you navigate to the following directory: /gxxxxxx/valheim-linux-plus/BepInEx/plugins In this directory you can upload your plugins, these consist mostly of one .dll file or of several files.
ATTENTION: Before uploading plugins your server must be shutdown!
In our example we upload an anticheat to the server which consists of three files:
⬆️ Start your server
After you uploaded your plugins as described you can start your server.
Make sure that some plugins have to be installed on the client side of your PC. This information can be found in the source of the plugin.
Have fun with your Valheim server! :)
