How do I add existing worlds to my server?

First, determine whether your server uses the ValheimServerHosting panel or the Hostari panel. This method only works for servers that run the ValheimServerHosting panel. To confirm this, you can read this article or reach out directly to chat.

If you use a Hostari panel, read this article to find the correct instructions for you.

Once you've confirmed that you're using the ValheimServerHosting panel, click the "Add World" button on your server profile.

Add World

You will be needing the .db and .fwl which contains your Valheim world progress. You can copy paste this on your windows directory: %appdata%\..\locallow\IronGate\Valheim\worlds . Make sure that the Valheim game is closed before copy pasting this.

valheim files directory

Drag and drop the <worldname.db> and <worldname.fwl> files onto the Add World panel.

Your server should restart and load the world you want to use. Happy Adventuring!
