Luckily, updating your server is a very easy process – just follow the steps below!

  1. Log into your Prisma account here:
  2. Once you have logged in, select the server you wish to update.
  3. Select the “Stop” button and wait for your server status to show as “Stopped”.
  4. Within your Settings panel, locate the “Server Type” field and select the “Change” button.
  5. Adjust the fields you are presented with according to the server version you wish to upgrade to. You will likely have no need to adjust the “Server Source” field if you are only updating. (E.g. If you are running Spigot 1.12 and you want to upgrade to Spigot 1.12.2, you need only adjust the “Package” field and then select the version of that package you wish to run. Typically, this will show “Recommended” or “Latest” and any versions in-between.)
  6. Once you have adjusted the fields to your liking, press the “Continue” button.
  7. You will be asked to confirm your choice and notified that changing server types can be dangerous.
    a. If you are updating to an experimental server version, you may want to backup your server before you proceed with the update.
    b. If you are using this guide to change your server type altogether, please be sure you’ve added a new world and backed up any files of importance before you proceed with your change.
  8. Once you are satisfied and ready to proceed, select the “Install” button. Prisma will take care of the installation for you and will also start (or restart if you skipped step #3) your server for you.
  9. Your server should have started successfully with the new server version installed. Congrats, you’ve updated!

Trying to update a PocketMine (MCPE) server?
If the server version you're looking for is not available in the Multicraft drop-down, it may not yet be available per PocketMine development. If it is a newly released Pocket Edition version, that is likely the case. Unfortunately, PM-MP and MCPE may not always be in-sync. Otherwise, if you're just missing something or having trouble, please contact us!

Still having trouble?

If you tried to follow these steps and your server has failed to start or you’re having trouble, please contact our Minecraft support team using the blue button in the bottom-right of our website.
Please be sure to let our team know exactly what you have already tried and/or where you began having trouble. We’re happy to help!
