A little over a year ago, we lost community's Minecraft server due to technical difficulties and not having a proper world backup. I am now considering rebuilding the map in my leisure time. And eventually I would like to upload the map to a new server for my community to play on.

Is this as simple as dropping the world file onto an online server? or is it more complicated?


You can transfer the world files to your servers root directory (next to the minecraft_server.jar).

You will need to change your worldname in server.properties to reflect the folder where the world data is stored.

IE, if your world is called test, you will have a directory called test with level.dat inside it.

In server.properties you need to change world-name=test in order for it to read it.
