How to Reset Your Minecraft Server

We have a video tutorial for resetting your Minecraft server:

If you want to start over with a brand new Minecraft server, you can easily do this without having to order another server. You simply need to reset your server. 

Resetting your server allows you to completely remove everything from your server so that you can make a fresh start. This is especially useful if you are switching from one mod pack to another, changing your server type or version, or just want to start over. If you only want to have a completely fresh world and keep everything the same, you can simply reset your Minecraft server world (How to Reset Your Minecraft World). 

Before starting with this guide, it is highly recommended that you create a backup of your world to make sure you have a copy of your current world in case you need this again.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Doing the steps below will permanently remove/delete ALL your server files. This action cannot be reversed so please make sure that you have a backup of all your server files and that you understand what you're about to do before proceeding to prevent any loss of server data.


  1. Log in to your server's Multicraft panel ( If you have more than one server, select the server you would like to reset.

  2. Stop your server if it is currently running. This prevents the server from creating any new files or modifying existing ones.

  3. Navigate to Files > FTP File Access from the left sidebar.

  4. Log in to your server's FTP File Manager.

  5. Select ALL files and folders on your server directory by clicking "All" as shown in the screenshot below. Then, click the Delete button.
    Reset Server - Select all

  6. Confirm the file(s)/folder(s) to delete and click Submit to proceed. Remember that you cannot undo this action so be sure that you are deleting the correct files and folders. 

    If your server files are very large and you are receiving an error when doing this step, it is recommended to use an FTP client like FileZilla to delete your server files. Scroll to the bottom of this tutorial for a guide on how to do this.

    Once you have successfully deleted all your server files, your server directory should now be empty.
    Reset Server - Submit delete action

  7. Navigate back to the main page of your server panel and select the Server Type you want to use for your newly reset server. 
    Reset Server - Select server type

  8. Click the Start button on your Multicraft panel to start your server and begin generating the new files for your server.

You're done! A fresh server will be generated for you!



This alternative method will show you how to delete all your server files via FileZilla. This method can be used if you have extremely large files or folders on your server that the FTP file manager on the panel isn't able to delete. 

If you are not familiar with how to use FileZilla or any FTP client, you may refer to this guide before proceeding with the steps below: How to use FileZilla for FTP (File Management)

  1. Access your server files by logging in to your FTP server using FileZilla

  2. Once you're logged in through FileZilla, select all files and folder in your server directory by pressing CTRL + A on your keyboard.

  3. Once you have all your server files and folders selected, right-click on the selected files and click Delete.
