How do I install workshop scenarios on my ARMA Reforger server?

  1. First find your desired missions in the ingame workshop and download them.
  2. You can find the downloaded mods under the following path: “\Documents\My Games\ArmaReforger\addons”.
  3. The folders have a special string as name (e.g. 591AF5BDA9F7CE8B). In addition, these folders contain a ServerData.json. If you open this, you can read out the ID and the name. In addition, you can see the scenario IDs of the individual missions that this mod contains. You will need this information later. Copy this information into a text document on your desktop.
  4. Stop your server
  5. Connect to your server via FTP and open the “WorkshopAddons”-folder. Insert the downloaded mod folders into this folder.

The mod is now on your server. Now we have to make the necessary configurations so that the server recognises the mod.

  • Open the config.json of your server via the configuration files. Here you will find prefabricated mod lines.
  • Enter the ID of the mod under modID. Below that you can name the mod.
  • Now you need to search in the modpage for the “Scenarios” tab and note down the scenario you want to play.
  • Then you need to enter the scneario ID into the config/Basicsettings like this:
  • Save your changes and start the server
  • Have fun playing!

How do I add mods to my server?

Download mods

As in many other games, you can also install mods for ARMA: Reforger to customize your gaming experience. We’ll show you the steps you need to take to do this.

It is important that you have the ModID, the name and the version of the mod. Below we explain how to get this information.

  • First start the game
  • Then click on “Workshop”
  • Now download all the mods you want to use on your server
  • After you have downloaded the mods, open the following path on your PC:

Hint Each downloaded mod has its own folder, which is named after the mod ID of the mod.

  • Now search each folder for the ServerData.json file and open it
    -> in the file you will find the info “ModID“, the mod name and the version of the mod
    -> make a note of all this info from EACH mod

Upload mods to your server

After you have noted down all the information, you have to add the information of the mods in our web interface.

Proceed as follows:

  • Stop your server (if it is currently started)
    -> If you have never started your server before, start it once, and stop it again as soon as it has been started successfully.
    -> This will create important files that we will need in a moment
  • Now click on “Configuration files” in the left margin
  • Now select “configs/config.json” under “Select configuration file
  • Now a text field appears below that looks something like this:
    "game": {
        "playerCountLimit": 20
    "gameHostBindPort": 28001,
    "gameHostRegisterPort": 28001
  • Now add the following lines here for EACH mod
    -> Below you can see the info at the example of the “BetterTracers”-Mod
    -> You have to adapt this for each mod accordingly)

Important It is important that you retain the syntax so that the server can then start again successfully.

  • Once you have entered all mods, click on “Save” in the upper right corner and you are ready to go (after you have restarted your server)
