HOW TO UPLOAD/DOWNLOAD WORLDS
DIFFICULTY: EASY

 

Instruction to uploading a world:

Minehut allows you to easily upload worlds from your computer to your server. This means that you can upload one you find online or your favourite survival world so you can share it with your friends.

What is uploading a world?

Uploading a world is simple. You have a couple of methods to choose from. You can either upload the world in-game or upload it via the panel. Please note that you can upload files up to 500mb in-game, however only smaller files can be uploaded using the panel as you have a 50mb limit.

Method one in-game:

  • To upload a world to your server in-game, you must first upload it to a site such as file.io, however you can use dropbox or mediafire instead.
  • Once you have the link to your file, you can head in-game and type /ul world <name> <link>.
  • This will create a world with the name ul_<name>. To travel to this world, type /world ul_<name>.

Make sure you have OP permissions!

Method two panel:

  • Using the navbar (the set of tabs at the top of the panel), select World.
  • From there, click Select a zip file under Upload World.
  • Select the file, hit upload and restart the server.
  • To travel to this world, type /world ul_<filename>

Again, make sure you have OP permissions!

Introduction to downloading worlds:

Downloading your world allows you to save a copy of it to your computer and upload it later on if you choose to. This is mainly helpful for saving ‘backups’ of your world in case anything goes wrong. 

So, how do you download your world?

  • Downloading a world is simple, go to the world you want to download using the command /worlds.
  • Then click on the world you want to download.
  • Once you’ve been teleported to that world, simply enter the command /dl world.
  • This will compress the world into a file and return a file.io link in chat.
  • When you click the link it’ll start downloading it, save the file wherever you want to keep the world and you’re done!

There's also another way to download your world:

  • Another way of downloading a world is by using the same command but specifying the world name.
  • You can do this by typing in-game /dl world (name).
  • If you wish to download an uploaded world then you will need to include the “ul_” (eg. ul_Map) however we suggest using the first method for minimal errors.

NOTE: You can only use the file.io link once. If you would like to get another copy of the world then you will have to follow these steps again.

Is there any way to make my uploaded world be the default world?

Yes! In order to set a default world, you must first head over to the panel and start up your server. Once your server has started, you can click the settings tab and go to level name and type in the new world that you want to become the default world. Any new users that join your server will spawn in the world that you have typed here.

I can't download my server world. It says "failed to upload file". I heard that the problem is that file.io is only allowing downloads to a certain size and i used my world a lot. I can download other world like my nether where is did not load so many chunks. So right now i cant download my world will that be fixed?

Your current options are;

- wait until Minehut fixes this issue.

- use a client side world downloader.

- use schematica.

The ‘problem’ is an issue with file.io (the service we use for downloading worlds). It decreased the max limit to 100mb instead of 500mb so be careful the size of the world you’re trying to download. This also came with some additional bugs I believe. There is no ETA on when it’ll get back to fully functional.

I'm so confused as to why when I try to upload the files in the game that it says my files are invalid. My world is about 350 mb which is under the 500 mb maximum. I made the world a zip file and got the link from mediafire since file.io only allows 100 mb or lower. When I type in /ul world newworld with the link to the files it just says they are invalid and I don't know why. Is there anything else I need to be aware of or that I am doing wrong??

I suggest you try using Dropbox. Once you get the download link, change the =0 to a =1 at the end of the url.

I'm not 100% sure if I am doing this right because when i right click the file on drop box and press copy link address, the link comes out on Minecraft as https://www.dropbox.com/preview/worlduno.zip?role=work. So unless I copied the wrong thing, there is no 0 to change and it still considers the files to be invalid.

That doesn't seem like the right url, does it give you any others?

Any news about the download problem? Will there ever be?

Minehut has moved to a different third party platform for downloading worlds. This should resolve any issues you have experienced. 

Minehut is also working on building its own platform for downloading worlds which means any issues will be resolved much quicker.

You have to delete the current nether and end, then upload the worlds (as world_nether and world_the_end), then restart the server.
