When you set up your first Minecraft server, it starts off with a freshly generated world. In case you already have your own world and want to import it to your server, you can easily do it by following these steps:

Step 1 - Prepare Your World File

First, locate your world file according to your operating system:

Windows 10

  1. Press the Windows Key (Start)

  2. Type in %appdata% and press enter

  3. Open the .minecraft folder and then go to the saves folder

  4. Find your save and drag the folder to your desktop

Mac OS

  1. Click on the Spotlight button in the menu bar. It looks like a magnifying glass. Or, use the Command+Space keyboard shortcut

  2. Paste ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft into the search bar

  3. Open the saves folder and drag the world to your desktop

Once you have located your world folder and copied it to an accessible location, rename it to a name that will help you easily locate it, using only lowercase letters.

Then, archive or compress it into a .zip file so it can be uploaded in the next step.

Step 2- Upload Your World

Log in to your Game Panel and stop the instance. Next, click on Manage:

Choose File Manager:

The File Manager option in Game Panel

Next, delete the current world folder by using right-click and then Trash:

Start your instance, log in to your server, and the new map should be loaded 😊
