Can I switch from Vanilla to Spigot without losing my world data?

  1. Hello,

    I currently run two Minecraft servers.

    The first is a Spigot 1.9 hosted by ShockByte Hosting. I have loved spigot every since installing it.
    The second server is a vamilla 1.9.2 server hosted on my LAN.

    I would like to move from vanilla to Spigot on the LAN server but I'm not quite sure how to do this. Any help is appreciated.
  2. Basically what you do is, from your vanilla, copy your world's folder and put it in your spigot and startup spigot server like any other. You could rename the folder to world so that it will be the default world, or you could get plugin like multiverse-core to import worlds

  3. Swap out the vanilla jar for a spigot jar. No need to move any files or folders.
  4. In his situation he needs to, as stated that he hosted the Vanilla on his LAN. And is going to be using ShockByte to host spigot server. He has to transfer the files to the hosting machine so.
  5. He said he wants to run spigot on his lan, where he's currently running vanilla.
  6. Oh on the LAN server, didn't see that part my bad
  7. It's all good. I had to do a double take too :p
  8. Thanks so much! I'll get right on this!
  9. Worked like a charm! I can't wait to get worldedit and multiverse-core setup!
