The first step is to go to Scalacube.com and log in to your account.
Click on "Servers" and then, "Manage server".
Click "Manage" again.
Shut down your server before making any changes by clicking on "Turn off" and wait for the process to finish.
Once shut down, you have to connect to your FTP using Filezilla. Your FTP details can be found by scrolling down on this page. See our guide on connecting to Filezilla for more details.
Once connected to your FTP, locate your "world" folder on the server-side.
Here you can choose to "Download" the "world" folder to make a backup onto your computer, or delete the server "world" and replace it with one from your computer.
If replacing the world in your server, the folder name of your new world has to match the one it was before, if before it was "world" then it has to continue to be "world" otherwise the server will not read it and will create a new one.
Once your changes have been made, you can exit the Filezilla program and start your server back up again.
Your world transfer is now complete.Backing up Your Minecraft World on Scalacube
