I've downloaded a free Minecraft server from https://minecraft.net/en-us/download/server and it works! I can play on the server. But even if I start up Minecraft with Forge, the mods won't work.

For example, I have WorldEdit. When I type in //wand it says Unknown command. And when I place down furniture, they pop up for a second and then disappear. Is there any way to get mods in to your own Minecraft server?

    Serverside mods are handled differently. You should get something like Spigot and install WorldEdit as a plugin.

Client-Side Forge and Server-Side forge are two different things; Client side is only on your computer, while server-side is on a server, and requires everyone to have the mods to join. If you would like to setup a forge server, install the server side version from the official website.
