How to Reset Your Minecraft Server – Knowledgebase – Shockbyte

We have a video tutorial to reset your

Minecraft server:

If you want to start over with a new Minecraft server, you can easily do so without having to order another server. You simply need to reset your server. Resetting your server allows you to completely remove everything from your server so you can start over. This is especially useful if you’re switching from one mod package to another, changing your server type or version, or just want to start over. If you just want to have a whole new world and keep everything the same, you can simply reset your Minecraft server world (How to reset your Minecraft world).

Before you get started with this guide, it is highly recommended that you create a backup of your world to ensure that you have a copy of your current world in case you need it again.


  1. Log in to your server’s control panel (Guide: How to Access Your Server’s Control Panel). If you have more than one server, select the server you want to reset.
  2. Stop the server if it is currently running. This prevents the server from creating new files or modifying existing ones. <img
