Updating Servers

How to change the version of your server!

How to update your server version

This process is actually incredibly easy, and the following instructions are for servers running PaperMC.

  1. Go to Paper's website.

  2. Download the latest build (of the version you want).

  3. Rename the file to server.jar or whatever you specified your server JAR file name to be in the startup tab of our panel.

  4. Replace the current server.jar in your server files with the new one you just downloaded.

  5. Restart/start your server.

Any new chunks generated should now contain new world generation if applicable, and you're now running the newer Minecrat version you want.

How to downgrade your server version

This process is technically not possible, and updated worlds cannot be downgraded. The only 'real' way to downgrade is to restore from a backup. However, if you don't need to keep your world files and don't have a backup, follow these steps.

  1. Stop your server.

  2. Change your server JAR file to the version you want.

  3. Delete the folders world, world_nether and world_the_end.

  4. Restart/start your server.
