It’s important to stop your server before you download your worlds to minimize file damage.

  1. Login to Command Center.
  2. From the server list, choose the server that you would like to modify and click Manage.
  3. Click the Files tab and open server.properties.
  4. Find level-name=currentworldname and note currentworldname. Yours will most likely be world or one you typed in.
  5. Remember it.
