This guide will show you how to properly restore a Multicraft backup manually, meaning without using the Multicraft Restore option.


🔩 Find the Backup And Download It 🔩

When you make a backup via the Multicraft panel, your world is added to a ZIP file and put in the root directory of the server with the same name as your world folder.

⚠ NOTE ⚠: You can also see all your backup in the Multicraft panel, in the Restore menu. You can find our guide for how to make a backup here.

So you can find your backups in your root directory of the server as ZIP files.

Now, for you to download the backup you want please follow the next steps:

Use Filezilla to connect to your server as this guide tells.


Download the ZIP file that you need by dragging it into your PC files side of Filezilla.




⌨ Test the Backup ⌨

We strongly recommend you test your backup before going deeper into the process. To test your backup you just need to run it into single-player and verify that it is working and that all your constructions are there.

To do so please follow the next steps:

Unzip the backup you just downloaded. Usually, you do so by right-clicking on it and then click on Extract Here.


Press the Windows key (⊞ Win) and type run.


Type %appdata%\.minecraft in the box that appears and then press the Enter key. Note that this should open the default Minecraft installation folder. If you installed it in a different folder you need to go yourself there.




Find your saves folder and place your world folder you unzipped in step number one there.




At the next Minecraft start, you will find your world between your single-player worlds and you will be able to play on it.


🔌 Upload the Backup to Your Server 🔌

After testing the backup and confirming it is not damaged in any way, all you have to do is upload the world folder you tested as a custom world into your server.

⚠ NOTE ⚠: We have a guide here explaining how to upload your custom world to your server, the process is the same.


Now, to upload your backup to the server, you need first to identify your current world folder name.

To find your world name just log in to your Multicraft Panel and then go to your server main page. There you will find a section titled World. There you have your world folder name.




To get your backup world working on your server please do the following:

Rename your new world folder as the old one (which is called by default 'world').


Use Filezilla to delete the old world folder and upload the new one in his place, meaning in the root directory of the server.



The example above shows how you upload the backup world folder to the root directory of the server after you removed the old one.


Restart your server.

Now you just uploaded your backup to your server successfully.


If you find any issues restoring a backup manually feel free to contact us anytime on live chat or via the ticket system.
