This morning I was trying to install a modpack on my minecraft server after getting a zip file, and its quite painful when I unzip everything in the current directory rather than the directory it belongs in.
So I've been struggling to get mods installed on linux lately and the easiest way to download the entire pack rather than each mod one by one seems to be to use the overwolf application on windows. Once I have the modpack I can start myself a small mod-server by zipping it, putting it in a mod-server directory and running a python
python -m http.server
Then I go back to my server and download the modpack with wget.
Now I can unzip my mods into the
unzip One+Block+Server+Pack-1.4.zip -d minecraft-data
I run the minecraft server with docker, which is setup to mount the minecraft-data directory.

A bit more on that in the other post, but when I download the whole modpack like this I make these changes to my docker compose. (commented out lines)
# MODS_FILE: /extras/mods.txt
# REMOVE_OLD_MODS: "true"
# - ./mods.txt:/extras/mods.txt:ro
