In order to use your own world on your Minecraft server, the world folder needs to be uploaded to your server's worlds folder either through Prisma's built-in file manager or FTP. We highly recommend using FTP clients for larger world uploads, since they'll allow you to upload files at faster rates than Prisma's file manager.

If you wish to use FTP to upload your world, you may use this guide to help you use WinSCP. Be sure to name the world folder exactly as you'd like your world on the server to be named.

To upload a world to your Bedrock server, follow these steps:

  1. Export your world through the Minecraft client so that you have a World Name.mcworld file.

  2. Open Prisma's file manager under "Customize" -> "File Manager" or login via FTP with an FTP client like WinSCP.

  3. Open the worlds folder.

  4. Create a new folder with the "Create Directory" button at the top right corner of the page, name it anything you'd like, then enter that folder.

  5. Use the “Upload” feature located towards the top-right of the panel to upload the .mcworld file here, or upload the .mcworld file with an FTP client.

  6. Once the upload completes, rename the .mcworld extension to .zip. As an example, if your world world was named "World Name.mcworld", you'd need to rename the file to "World Name.zip".

  7. In Prisma's file manager, click the newly renamed .zip file to select it, then click "Extract Selected" to extract the .zip file.

Once the extraction completes, visit the "Overview" page in Prisma and select the appropriate world in the World selector. After you've uploaded the world folder and added the world to your world selector, restart the server and you should be good to go. If you're still having troubles, please contact our team.
