How do I change my Valheim world's name?

Currently, we do not support changing your world's name directly on the server dashboard.

You need to do one of the following workarounds:

Renaming an existing world with progress
If you want to rename your world and have existing progress, we recommend that you do the following workaround:
Download your current world backup from the server dashboard
After downloading your current world backup, you should have two files ending with a .db and .fwl extension.
Rename these files to your desired world name. Make sure you don't remove the .db and .fwl extension, as not including these will cause world upload to fail!
Upload your world through the server dashboard.
Once your world is uploaded, load it to your current server though the world management menu in the server dashboard!

Uploading a new world
If you don't mind starting with a new world seed or don't mind losing your progress, you can always create a new world name and upload that one!
Create a new Valheim world through Single Player
After creating a new Valheim world, exit your game and navigate to where Valheim stores its local saves. As of writing, it is usually saved in C:/Users/[your windows username]/AppData/LocalLow/IronGate/Valheim/worlds.
Once you're in the Valheim worlds folder, look for your newly created world's .db and .fwl files.
After finding your world's .db and .fwl files, upload them to your server through the "Upload New World" button located in your server's dashboard.
Once your world is uploaded, load it to your current server though the world management menu in the server dashboard!
