How to Delete Worlds on Minecraft Servers

To delete a world or worlds from your server you need to either connect via your FTP file access, which is accessed through your multicraft control panel. Or using an application such as Filezilla.

To do it through your ftp file access just go to Files on your multicraft control panel, and log in. Next find the world file on this page and tick the box next to the name. Once highlighted you can go ahead and delete the world.

If you want to use Filezilla, simply log in using your ftp file info. Once your server is connected just right click on the world you want to delete and select delete.

If you delete The End or The Nether file to the current world thats loaded it will be re created once the server starts back up again. For a more in depth tutorial on restarting the nether or the end check out our tutorial here.


How to Swap Between Worlds on Minecraft Servers

You can easily swap between worlds by changing the name in the World file on your Multicraft control panel. Just be aware that typing a new name creates a new world. If you have many worlds loaded up on your server it can make it run slower. This is due to your server file getting larger, so I suggest deleting any un used worlds or saving them as back ups.
