I want to play an adventure map with my friends but want to do it over my server so we don't need to use "Lan". How would I move the map into my server from my desktop?

  • We need more info, please. Is this server run on your computer, or is it a server that you purchased access for? Jul 23, 2015 at 21:36
  • @Tkdestroyer2, its not because I already have the server and want the map on the preexisting server. Jul 23, 2015 at 22:15
  • And it is run from my computer, I made it Jul 23, 2015 at 22:16
  • If that is the case, the answer should work. Jul 23, 2015 at 22:20
  • @Tkdestroyer2 Let's not dupe to a closed question, shall we? Even if it's a duplicate, a closed question should be deleted, not duped to.

I'm going to assume that you're running the server on your computer.

To use a map on a server, all you have to do is navigate into your saves directory within .minecraft, copy the folder containing the map you wish to use and paste it into the server directory's saves folder.

After that, you will need to modify this line in the server.properties file:


Change 'world' to whatever the name of your map folder is.

Hope this helped!

  • Thank you, but, where can I find the server directory? Jul 23, 2015 at 22:13
  • Ive got the server files, but the server directory is not there, i cant configure anything Jul 23, 2015 at 22:19
  • no, thats the problem Jul 23, 2015 at 22:21
  • @Smartypants1800 All server files will be next to, and in the same folder as, your minecraft server file (the one you run to start the server, which you downloaded from the Minecraft website). Jul 23, 2015 at 22:22
  • i run the server from a Jar not a folder Jul 23, 2015 at 22:22
