When your server is first created, it starts off with a freshly generated world. However if you’re like most, you’ll probably want to use one you’ve already been working on or a pre-built world from online. Uploading a custom world to the server can be a bit tricky, however we are here to guide you through each step so you can build your dream server!
The world needs to come from an official site such as Planet Minecraft.
Confirm that the world that you want to download is made for the same version of Minecraft that your server is running.
Download the world to your computer.
The world file will be saved as a .zip archive. You will want to extract the files using an archiving tool such as 7zip or WinRAR to a known directory.
Rename the world so you can identify it later. If you have more than one world, this helps to keep track of which is which. When renaming, its best to avoid using any spaces or special characters.
Restarting the server but the world is still not loaded.
If this is the case, it’s highly likely that the world field was set incorrectly. Double check that you typed the name of the world exactly as it’s shown in the FTP, it is caps sensitive.
Inventory and location is reset
This is generally caused by the playerdata folder from your world not transferring over correctly. If you get this issue, you can try reuploading the playerdata folder from your computer into the worlds folder of the server.
Buildings from the world are missing
If you login to your uploaded world and notice that none of your builds are there, it is highly likely that the world was not fully uploaded through FileZilla or that it had failed transfers. In this case you can stop your server, delete and reupload the world completely.
This can also be caused by the world not being compatible with your server version. Make sure to always check the version that the world is made for before uploading it to the server.
