Server wont start on forge

Hi, my server wont start on forge 1.20. I have java 17 so it should work. Im not getting any logs either.

so i just ran into this issue too and figured it out. Here is what I did.

go to your /var/games/minecraft/servers/servernamehere

cd /var/games/minecraft/servers/ServerNameHere

then go ahead and open up either your run.bat or


Then you need to extract the arguments
You should find something along the lines of
java @user_jvm_args.txt @libraries/net/minecraftforge/forge/1.19.2-43.2.21/unix_args.txt


Get rid of the beginning java part so you end up with
@user_jvm_args.txt @libraries/net/minecraftforge/forge/1.19.2-43.2.21/unix_args.txt

Open up your mineos interface.
Go to your server.
And add
@user_jvm_args.txt @libraries/net/minecraftforge/forge/1.19.2-43.2.21/unix_args.txt
to your additional java arguments box.
Boot with your basic minecraft_server_1.XX.x.jar
it should load forge.

It worked. Thanks for the help!
