What are datapacks?
Datapacks provide the player a method of further customizing their Minecraft experience on a vanilla server without having to upload any mods or plugins.
The first step is to find a suitable datapack for you. You can find multiple different datapacks on a website called VanillaTweaks.
Once you have selected your datapack, click on “Download”.
Extract the .zip file onto your desktop.
You will be left with another .zip file that contains all the required files to make a datapack work on your Minecraft server. Keep those three files inside the .zip file.
Next, go to Scalacube.com and log in to your control panel.
Click on "Servers" and click on "Manage server".
Click "Manage" again.
Find the “File Manager” on the left tab and enter it.
Locate your “world” folder and enter it.
Locate the “datapacks” folder and enter it.
Click on "Upload" at the top right, select your datapack and click "Upload".
Once this is done, go back and reboot your server by clicking on the button labeled "Reboot" and wait for the process to finish.
The datapack has been uploaded and will be waiting for you once you enter your server.
By entering /datapack in the console, you can view all the datapacks your server currently has.
If the datapack is not functional, go back and make sure that you uploaded it into the correct folder and that it contains all the correct files required.
Congratulations! You now know How to install datapacks on Scalacube
