Upload a World to Your Minecraft Server

The words World and Map are used interchangeably by many Minecraft users. A developer might call the file a world while someone designing a map to be used in a contest might be called a Map Maker. We’re just going to use the word World in this article to keep things simple.

To upload a world to your Minecraft server, copy your world files onto your server via FTP and configure Command Center to load your world.

First thing you need to do is find and prepare the world you want to use on your server. You can use any world, whether it comes from an existing single player game or you download it from a Minecraft map sharing website of some kind.


If a world was made for a specific version of the game, you will want to use that same version on your server. This is especially true for any modded maps which will require that you use the same set of mods and versions of those mods or it could break the world.

Refer to this Minecraft Wiki tutorial.

  1. Start the launcher.
  2. Click the Minecraft tab on the left.
  3. Choose the modpack in the list that you want.
  4. Right click and choose Open Folder.
  5. Go to the folder. The world you want should be in there.
  1. Start the launcher.
  2. Click the Modpacks tab and choose the pack you want.
  3. Open Modpack Options in the upper right corner, and click Open.
  4. Go to the folder. The world you want should be in there.
  1. Start the launcher.
  2. Click My Modpacks on the left side to show your installed modpacks.
  3. Navigate to the modpack options page. If your modpacks are shown in grid mode, you will need to click on the 3 dot icon in the upper right of the modpack's image. If your modpacks are shown in list mode, you can click anywhere but the play button.
  4. On the modpack options page, click the Open Folder button on the upper right side.
  5. Go to the folder. The world you want should be in there.
  1. Start the launcher.
  2. Click the Instances tab.
  3. Choose the modpack you want and click Open Folder.
  4. Find the folder containing the world you want in there.

If your world is archived in a , , etc., unzip it first on your computer. Find the folder that contains . Next, make sure that the folder name contains no spaces or special characters. If it does, rename it so it doesn’t contain them.

  1. Login via FTP.
  2. Drag the folder that contains into in your FTP client. Make sure the folder name only contains letters, numbers, or the and characters. If it doesn’t, rename it.
  3. For those of you who ordered your server before April and are using the default game, drag the folder into in your FTP client instead.
  4. Back in Command Center, stop your server.
  5. Click the Files tab and open .
  6. Find and replace with the name of your world folder. Click Save. The system is case-sensitive, so if your folder is named you must type . Typing will generate a new world instead of using the one you uploaded.

How to download new Minecraft maps and add them to your game

  • You can download "Minecraft" maps that others have made and play on them yourself.
  • "Minecraft" maps can be downloaded for free from community sites like Minecraft Maps or CurseForge.
  • Once you've downloaded a "Minecraft" map, you can play on it by placing it in your game's "saves" folder.
  • Visit Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories.

"Minecraft" — and in particular the original, mod-friendly "Java" edition — is a game that offers its players near limitless creativity.  No two worlds are alike, and starting a new one can sometimes seem like a daunting task.

Fortunately, you don't have to start from scratch. Thanks to a benevolent community eager to show off their masterpieces, you can download an expert-level Minecraft map and start playing right away.

And these downloadable maps are often more than mere templates: They can offer adventurous puzzles, jump-scare horror experiences, scavenger hunts, multiplayer games, and more. As long as the map you download is compatible with the version of Minecraft you run, just about every theme and type of map imaginable is at your fingertips.

Here's where you can find amazing custom maps, and how you can add them to your slate of playable Minecraft worlds.

How to find 'Minecraft' maps to download

Minecraft map-dedicated sites like, and the "Worlds" page on are great for a few reasons. One, they have thousands of maps to offer; two, you can easily search through them for the one you want; and three, there's an ample amount of reviews and ratings, so you can see which maps are worth the download and which ones can be skipped.

Make sure any map you want to download is compatible with the version of "Minecraft" you run as well, or it might be buggy and crash your game.

How to download a 'Minecraft' map and add it to your game

1. When you find a map you want to download that's compatible with the version of Java you run, download, unzip and drag the file to your desktop (or any location on your computer that you can find again quickly).

2. Next, you'll find and open your Minecraft folder.  If your Minecraft folder is saved in the default location for your device, then you can find it by:

  • Windows: Press the Windows key + R to open the Run menu. In the text field, enter "%appdata%\.minecraft" and press Enter.

4. Grab the map you downloaded and drag and drop the file into the Minecraft "saves" folder. Make sure to drag the entire folder for the map download file, and not just contents within the folder.

How to Download and Install Minecraft Maps

By Amir M. Bohlooli


Would you like to learn how to install some new Minecraft maps? We'll make it easy.

Playing Minecraft is a fantastic way to explore your creativity. But after a while, the game can start to feel a little stale.

One way that players resolve this issue is by installing new Minecraft maps. These maps are easy to find, and they make playing Minecraft feel fresh again.

This guide will show you the best places to download Minecraft maps and how to install them.

What Are Minecraft Maps?

Minecraft maps are basically the same as Minecraft worlds: custom virtual environments made by in-game players. These maps can be anything from a pixel-art statue to a parkour challenge. They can even take the form of an entire city.

And once players create a new Minecraft map, they can share their creation with the community. In addition, importing these maps allows users to explore the designs of other community members.

How to Download Minecraft Maps

First, you'll need to determine which version of Minecraft you have. Java maps will not load on Bedrock versions of the software and vice versa. Once you've verified your version, you can download maps from the websites listed below. Maps also come in one of two file formats: .zip or .mcworld.

  • .zip file: .zip files are used to share maps created in the Java edition of Minecraft. The .zip file contains the assets related to loading the map in-game. Bedrock editions of the game (Windows 10, iOS, Android) also formerly used .zip files. A great source for these maps is the Minecraft Maps website.
  • .mcworld file: The .mcworld extension stores all map-related assets in a single file. To install a .mcworld map, double-click it. You can find .mcworld maps on the MCPEDL fan site, along with skins, seeds, texture packs, and mods specifically for Minecraft.

Now that you've downloaded your new maps, it's time to install them.

How to Install Minecraft Maps on Windows (Java)

To use your new map file, you'll need to place it in the correct directory. The location will vary based on your Minecraft version. For the Windows Java version:

  1. Extract the .zip file you've downloaded.
  2. Copy the map folder by highlighting it and pressing Ctrl + C on your keyboard.
  3. On your keyboard, press Win + R to open the Windows Run app.
  4. In the text box, type %appdata%. Then, press Enter to open the C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming directory.
  5. In the Roaming directory, find the folder labeled .minecraft. Inside, you'll find a folder labeled saves. This folder is where Minecraft stores its maps.
  6. Open the saves folder and paste the map folder inside. That's it!

Alternate Method

If you want to avoid using the Run app, you can also access the Minecraft saves folder through the Minecraft Launcher. Here's how: First, copy the map folder as before.

  1. Open Minecraft Launcher.
  2. Under Minecraft: Java Edition, click the Installations tab.
  3. Hover over Latest Release and click the folder icon to open the Minecraft installation directory.
  4. Navigate to the saves folder.
  5. Paste the map folder.

To explore your downloaded world, launch Minecraft in single-player mode. You should see your map. Click the map to load it. Once everything loads, start exploring!

How to Install Minecraft Maps on Windows 10 (Bedrock)

You can easily install custom maps on all Bedrock editions of Minecraft by using .mcworld archives. Double-click the .mcworld file to open Minecraft with the new map loaded.

For older files that use the .zip extension, you'll have to extract them and manually move the contents to the minecraftWorlds folder.

  1. Extract the downloaded zip file.
  2. Copy the folder you just unpacked.
  3. Open File Explorer.
  4. Copy the address below and paste it into the Quick access bar. Press Enter.
  5. This command opens the Minecraft installation directory.
  6. Open the minecraftWorlds folder.
  7. Paste your map folder, and you should be all set!

How to Install Minecraft Maps on Mac

Just like the Windows Java Edition, to install Minecraft maps on macOS, you'll have to move the map files to the Minecraft saves folder. Start by downloading the .zip file for your map as before. The new map will appear in the single-player menu as a new world. Now you can explore your freshly downloaded Minecraft map.

  1. Extract the map folder from the archive.
  2. Copy the map folder.
  3. Open Minecraft Launcher.
  4. Go to the Installations tab.
  5. Hover over Latest Release and click the folder icon to open the Minecraft installation directory.
  6. Navigate to the saves folder.
  7. Paste the map folder inside the saves folder.

How to Install Minecraft Maps on Android (Bedrock)

Installing Minecraft maps on Android is also simple with the new .mcworld extension. All you need to do is open the map file, and it should automatically launch in Minecraft. Older Minecraft maps, on the other hand, might use the traditional .zip format. To install these, you'll have to unpack them and paste them into the minecraftWorlds folder. Here's how:

  1. Open the Files by Google app on your Android device.
  2. Navigate to your Minecraft map .zip file.
  3. Click on the .zip file and select Extract. You should now see a folder containing the Minecraft map.
  4. Copy the Minecraft map folder.
  5. Navigate to the root directory and then to games/com.mojang/minecraftWorlds.
  6. Paste the map folder, and you're done!

Alternatively, you could also connect your Android phone to your computer via USB to move the map files from your computer to the minecraftWorlds folder.

How to Install Minecraft Maps on iOS (Bedrock)

Like other Bedrock editions, if your downloaded map uses the .mcworld extension, all you have to do is run it, and Minecraft should load the new map. However, if you have an older map in a .zip format, you'll need to convert it to a .mcworld file. Here's how:

  1. First, you'll need to download Documents by Readdle from the iOS store. Once installed, open the Files app and tap your downloaded .zip file.
  2. Documents should prompt you for an unzip location. Choose any location you like.
  3. Once unzipped, open the extracted map folder, and select all folders inside using the checkmark in the upper left corner of the screen. You must select all of them, or this process won't work.
  4. Next, tap More at the lower right of your screen.
  5. Tap Compress to compress these files into an Archive. Once the archive has finished, deselect everything. Then, tap the check box next to the Archive file and tap Rename at the bottom of the screen.
  6. Rename the file, using .mcworld to replace the .zip extension (Archive.mcworld, for example). Documents will ask you to verify this change. Do so. Tap Done when you are finished.
  7. Next, tap the .mcworld file you just created. Then tap Open in another app and select Minecraft. The new world should load—tap Play.
  8. Under the Worlds heading, you should see your new map! Tap it, and you're done.
