How can I add a other world to my minecraft server and still keep my worlds? I tried to add a world to FileZilla. The world name was called "Wild". I then went to console and changed the world name to "Wild" then restart. When I came back all the worlds were gone.

You could always use a Bukkit server and use something like MultiVerse to manage worlds. – Magicp Apr 26 '14 at 16:55

In your server directory, you have all your worlds saved. By default, your world is called just world. In the file, you can change the world name by editing the value of level-name. When you then restart the server, it should generate a new world after the name. When you want to come back to the old world, just change the level-name value back to the name. You can have as many worlds as you want.
