If you have downloaded an existing backup and now want to import or restore it, you have to do a few steps.

Quick guide

Remove any content in the /serverfiles folder on the server. Upload only the /serverfiles folder from the backup. Leave all other files untouched.

Step by step

  • Unpack the downloaded backup on your PC.
  • Create a new game server of the same type in the game server manager. It does not matter if the server has a different IP address.
  • Start the game server once successfully before you go.
  • Stop the game server again.
  • Connect to the new game server via FTP.
  • Remove the contents of the /serverfiles folder on the FTP server. Leave the other files as they are.
  • Once the /serverfiles folder on the server is emptied, upload the contents of the /serverfiles folder to the /serverfiles server folder from the unpacked archive.
  • Wait until the process is complete.
  • The server can now be restarted. All game saves and configs will be restored at the time of the backup.
