How to Upload Your World using Mac OSX

This guide will show you how to upload a world to your server using Mac OSX and Filezilla.

You Will Need:
  • Your map
  • Your server
  • FileZilla

To begin this process you will need to download and install the Mac OSX version of Filezilla, which can be found here.

To install it, simple double click on the downloaded file. It will automatically extract to where it downloaded file.
Double click the Filezilla installer. The following window will pop up. Click "Open".

Follow the instructions on screen to install Filezilla. Filezilla should launch when its done.

Next, go to your control panel. Stop your server and click on the "Files Menu" and go to your FTP File Access. Then choose .

A window will pop up that will have your FTP File Information in it. It will look like the following:

Take that information and put it in the corresponding area like the image below shows.

Next, find the map that you have downloaded. If it is in a zip file, you will need to double click it to extract. By default, zips are extracted in the same location as the zip file. In our example below, the zip is located on the desktop, so the map automatically unzipped to a folder on the desktop.

Open the map folder and take a look at the contents. Sometimes a map will have another folder inside of it. Sometimes it won't. Either way you need to ensure that the actual map folder contains folders such as "data", "DIM-1" or "DIM-2". Rename the folder that contains those folders to something that is more server friendly and does not contain any spaces or special characters. In our example map, we'll name our map folder "Map".

Next, go back to Filezilla. Connect to your server. On the "Local Site" side of Filezilla, navigate to where the map you want to upload is located on your computer. Then drag the map to the right side of FileZilla. In our example, the map we want is located on the computer's desktop.

The files will upload. You can tell that they're uploading if they queue up and the bottom of your Filezilla looks similar to the screenshot below. Keep in mind that upload time vary according to your ISP.

When the upload completes, there will be no files left in the queued files. Now you can go to your control panel and click on the "Add World" link at in the world Field. In the pop up, put in the name of your map and click "ok". For our example, our map folder is called "Map", so that is what we'll use. 

Your Multicraft panel will then refresh. Go back down to the world field, and choose your world from the list.

Then choose save at the bottom. Your control panel will refresh and you can start your server!

Congratulations! You have just uploaded your world!
