7 Days to Die | Uploading an Existing world

To upload your own world follow this guide

1. Every world you generate is saved in its own folder that can usually be found in c:\Users\{YOUR WINDOWS USERNAME}\Documents\7 Days to Die\Saves 
Zip up the folder that is your save folder AND the generatedworlds folder(Must be .zip, not .rar/.7z etc)

2. Log into your game panel > game services > select your server

3. Go to file manager and go into the "Saves" folder, upload your zipped save folder then click it after its finished uploading and select unzip. Ensure you have the correct path for the world type you are uoploading. For example

If you have a Navesgane world named Pingperfect you should upload the Pingperfect folder to
Saves\Navesgane

If you have a Random world named Pingperfect you should upload the Pingperfect folder to 
Saves\Random

4. Once the folder has unzipped you should see Saves\World Type\Your world name, come out of file manager and go into configuration files > configuration editor
