Updating Your Minecraft: Bedrock Edition's Server Version
This article will guide you through the process of updating your server for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition hosted here at Nodecraft.
Backup Your Server
It is a good habit to backup your server before making any changes to it. It can save a lot of headaches and heartbreak if any mistakes happen along the way. You can create a backup of your server at anytime you wish by going to the Backups page of your NodePanel.
Update Your Server with the One Click Installer
On the left hand side of your NodePanel, click on the One Click Installer link. Next, click on the green "Change Version" button.
Through the dropdown menu on the right, select the latest version of the game. Make sure the installation method is on Archive (it should be the default method) and click Install.
Move Your Files to the Main Directory
The Archive installation method neatly packs away the contents of your File Manager into an
_old_files folder and then installs the version you selected into the File Manager, keeping your previous files safe inside the
_old_files folder, including your world progress.
Now you just need to move your progress from
_old_files into the main directory or root of your File Manager. Inside the
_old_files folder you'll notice another folder with a timestamp on it. If you've updated your server several times, you'll notice more than one with different dates on it.
Go into the folder with the latest date on it. Inside, you'll notice that these files look very familiar. This is your server's File Manager contents before you updated your server.
server.properties files (you can also include any custom changes or files you've added in this step). Click on the "Move" button near the top of the Panel and select the
/(main folder) option.
Start Your Server
Your files will now be in the correct place on your server so you'll be able to continue with your worlds progress where you left off! All that's left is to Start your server up and continue playing.
