Download the official Forge installer and then copy it to the server.

The run the following:

Create start.sh with the following line:
java -Xms3G -Xmx3G -jar forge-1.8-11.14.4.1577-universal.jar nogui

chmod +x start.sh

nano eula.txt

IP Tables
sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 25565 -j ACCEPT

Useful commands;

./start.sh
screen ./start.sh - starts and runs when ssh session is closed
screen -r - opens the ssh session again if closed before
stop - stops the MC server

op-level 3 can do everything except stop the server
