How do I run a 1.12.2 modded minecraft server if Linode only lets you run Minecraft - Latest?

Sorry if this is a stupid question, I am not really informed with all of this stuff but I have $100 credit and wanted to start a modded server but when you go to buy/rent a server you can only buy Minecraft - Latest. The advanced options don't allow you to change the game version and in my case, I need to change it to 1.12.2, for All the Mods 3 Remix.

Any insight is appreciated and will be very helpful. Thank you.

Hi @Tim - It sounds like you deployed your Minecraft server using our Marketplace App, which is configured to install Minecraft 1.16 software. If you need to run an older version of the software, you'll want to manually install Minecraft on your Linode. We have a guide available that will take you through the process on setting up a Minecraft server on a Linode.

When you get to the 'Install Minecraft' section of the guide, just make sure you're downloading the version you want. The example wget command provided in the guide is for version 1.13, not 1.12. I hope this helps.
