Installing Java

Before you start, you will need to make sure you have the correct version of Java installed. One of the most common problems that people encounter when running a server is having 32-bit Java or having the incorrect version of Java for the given Minecraft version. All Enigmatica modpacks require 64-bit Java, and the specific version required is listed below.
​

Windows

  • For Minecraft 1.16 or earlier: Select Temurin 8 (LTS) as the version.
  • For Minecraft 1.17 or later: Select Temurin 17 (LTS) as the version.
  • Select Latest release if you are downloading it from a 64-bit Windows computer.
  • Otherwise, select Other platforms and change Operating System to Windows and Architecture to x64.

Ubuntu or Debian Linux

  • For Minecraft 1.16 or earlier: Run this command from the command line: sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre.
  • For Minecraft 1.17 or later: Run this command from the command line: sudo apt-get install openjdk-17-jre.
Note that the package might have a different name depending on the version of the distribution you are running, so you should get familiar with the apt command and how to manage packages on your system.

Fedora, RHEL, or CentOS Linux

  • For Minecraft 1.16 or earlier: Run this command from the command line: su -c "yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk"
  • For Minecraft 1.17 or later: Run this command from the command line:
    • su -c "yum install java-1.17.0-openjdk"
Note that the package might have a different name depending on the version of the distribution you are running, so you should get familiar with the yum command and how to manage packages on your system.

Mac

  • For Minecraft 1.16 or earlier: Select Temurin 8 (LTS) as the version.
  • For Minecraft 1.17 or later: Select Temurin 17 (LTS) as the version.
