Ok so my daughter wants to host a Minecraft server with lots of cool mods to play with her friends during this Coronavirus nightmare. Anyways I shop around, and decide Forge looked good.

I already have Minecraft Java Edition running on the basic JRE. Do I need to upgrade my Java Runtime Environment to use Minecraft JE on a server? I thought that's what I payed Forge for.

But I cant seem to get The game and JRE running on the Forge Network.

Also forge looks to be Java based, but could I just run my Minecraft windows edition on Forge? First time trying to host a server, any insight would be most appreciated.
