Can I transfer/use my existing Minecraft server files/worlds/maps or a single player world to Labradorhost?

Yes! We provide full server file access through the panel and with SFTP.

The easiest procedure to import your old world files is as follows:

  1. Compress/archive your "world" folder to a zip-file. If you are importing a singleplayer world, see below where your world files are located.
  2. Go to your server at our server panel, then to the "File Manager" tab.
  3. Upload the zip-file you just made by simply dragging it in to the browser window in the File Managers root folder (the folder where the server.jar, server.properties and whitelist is). Note that if your world folder is larger than 100mb you need to use SFTP instead.
  4. Mark the zip file, then click on "Unarchive".

Now, your world is uploaded and you can start your server!

Minecraft singleplayer game worlds are stored in:

Windows: %appdata%. minecraft\saves\
GNU/Linux: ~/. minecraft/saves/
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/saves/
