# Serverwide Resource Packs

Once you found the resource pack you want on your server you need to upload the resource pack to a website and get the direct download link of it. You can use this website.

Click “choose file”, find your file and then click upload. Make sure the file you upload is a.zip file. A file can easily be made into a zip file by right-clicking the file, picking “send to” in the dropdown menu and then choosing “compressed (zipped) folder”

Locate server.properties and open it. Find resource-pack and paste your URL in the box.
Optionally, you can add the SHA1 checksum of your chosen resource pack so that clients will be able to reliably update the pack, even if the name doesn't change. To obtain the SHA1 checksum, you can run certUtil -hashfile \path\to\file SHA1 on Windows or shasum /path/to/file on Mac or Linux. Alternitively, you can simply use emn178's online SHA1 checksum checker. Once you have it, simply append it to resource-pack-sha1= on the second-to-last line of server.properties.
