Step 1 Get Your Minecraft Seeds

Find a Minecraft seed that you want to use. For bedrock you can find our some good Minecraft Seeds from our  Top 5 Bedrock Seeds article.

Once you have got a seed number for your correct version. For example if your playing Java 1.16.5, then you need the seed to be relevant for Java and 1.16 and above.

Then go ahead and stop your server.


Step 2 Insert The Seed Number

With your server stopped, now head over to Files and then Config Files. Now select server settings and navigate down to where it asks you for your Level Seed.

Here you need to type in your world seed number, once entered then go to the bottom of the page and hit save.

This will now use this seed to generate the next world once your server restarts.
