To tranfer our Minecraft server’s data to v2.verygames.net from verygames.net, you have to make a backup of your server on your computer, then transfert those data on your new FTP server.
You can transfer all server ‘s files, or just the map, plugins or configurations.
I) Server ‘s backup
To download your data, you need to connect to your FTP.
The FTP connexion’s access are on your VeryGames’panel.
Go on your Minecraft’s panel, then go in the « FTP » tab.
You will find in this tab your FTP access : Address , login and password.
To connect to your FTP with those access, you need a FTP software. In this tutorial, we will use the FileZilla software.
Here is how the FileZilla software looks like:
FileZilla is divided into 5 parts :
- Connexion’s informations
- Operations logs
- Your computer’s files
- Server’s files
- Download queue
Connect to your FTP with your access (The default port is 21, you do not need to set it on FileZilla ). When you have filled up your access, click on « Quickconnect ».
When you are connected to your FTP, you will find your server’s data in the « games » folder, then « Minecraft » folder.
In the Minecraft’s folder, you will find your data in the folder corresponing to the version installed on your server.
For exemple, if you use the Minecraft’s Spigot version on your server, you will find your server’s data in the Spigot folder.
If you want to make a complete backup of your server, you need to save the Spigot folder on your computer. For that, you just need to slide your Spigot Folder to the left field (field which corresponding to your computer). Your folder will be copied on your computer.
Attention : take care about the destination folder in your left field.
In FileZilla’s queue, we will see files being transfered to your computer.
Wait until the end of the download, after that you can proceed to the next step.
Note : You can opt not to make a complete backup of your server. You can save only the map, plugins or configurations. You just need to download the corresponding files by using the method described above.
II) Upload your server’s backup on your new server.
Before you transfer your data on your new server’s FTP, you have to install the same version that was installed on your last server. For exemple, if your server was on the Spigot 1.8 version, you have to install the Spigot 1.8 version. To install the version that you want on your server, go in the « Games » tab on your VeryGames ‘panel.
Click on « New game install ».
Select the Minecraft’s version that you want to install, select the version’s number (1.7, 1.8 etc…). You can customize your installation with a custom name.
Your server settles down for a few minutes.
When your server is installed, you will be able to upload your old server’s data.
Go to the « FTP » tab.
Before connecting to your FTP, you have to create a login and a password. This login and this password will be used to connect to your FTP. You have to create these accesses during your first connection, they will be recorded on your panel.
On the new VeryGames website, you can connect to your FTP by two ways.
-By the WebFTP
-By a FTP software (FileZilla)
First method : By the VeryGames WebFTP
When your accesses are created, you just need to click on the button « Login with this acces » to connect to the VeryGames WebFTP.
Once your FTP window is opened, you can see various files (according to the versions installed on your server). The log folder contains all the server’s logs. If you installed Spigot on your server, you will thus find a « minecraft_spigot » folder, if you installed OpenMod, you will find a «minecraft_openmod » folder.
Attention : Do not rename these folders on your FTP otherwise your server will not start !
To tranfer your old server’s data, you just have to enter to the folder corresponding to ther version installed on your server (Spigot in our case). Then make all server’s data slide from your computer to your WebFTP.
You can follow the transfer with the download queue at the bottom of your WebFTP.
Second method : By FileZilla
As for the old server, you need your login of this new FTP to connect to it. They are present in the « FTP » tab :
You will find the FTP’s address in the top section. Then, use the login and the password which you created.
Connect with these identifiers on FileZilla.
To tranfert your old server's data on the FTP, open your old server's folder in the left field and the new server's folder in the right field
To transfer your old server’s data to the FTP, slide all files and folders that are present in your old server’s folder from your computer or from the left field of FileZilla.
You can follow the transfer within the download queue at the bottom of your software.
When the transfer is finished, your server is ready to be launched.
To launch your server, go in the « Games » tab on your VeryGames’ panel.
Select the game version that you have installed (Spigot for exemple) and click on « Confirm ».
Your server now starts on the version selected with all your data. Once connected on your server, you will thus find your map, your configurations and your plugins.
Attention : the information of your server contained in the file server.properties such as the server’s IP address, the port etc… are automatically updated. You do not need to modify them.
