How to Reset a Minehut Server

Introduction

If you're the server administrator of your Minehut server, there may be times when you need to reset it. This may be because you have made changes that have broken things, or maybe you want to change some of your server's settings. In any case, resetting a Minehut server is easy!

Click the "Reset" button on the server page.

To reset a server, you must first access the server settings. To do so:

  • Go to the Minehut website and log in.

  • Click Server Settings on the left-hand side of your screen.

  • Click Reset next to your server's name in the list that appears below "Server Settings."

The server will be reset to default settings, which means all plugins, worlds, and files that were uploaded through FTP will be deleted.

The server will be reset to default settings, which means all plugins, worlds, and files that were uploaded through FTP will be deleted. You should also consider uninstalling any custom plugins and disabling them before running the reset.

When the server is restored with these settings, it will still have your minecraft login credentials in the database but all other information will be removed. This includes all email addresses associated with accounts on your server (if you used email for authentication), so if you want to keep using those emails for logins or notifications you need to add them again after restoring everything else has been set up again as normal (see below).

Take note of the plugins and world names you want to keep before resetting!

Before resetting, make sure you have a backup of the server files. If you do not have a backup, or if the backup is corrupted and cannot be restored, all the plugins and worlds that you worked on will be lost when the server is reset.

To back up your server:

  • Open FTP or SFTP in Windows Explorer and connect to your VPS using your username and password (the same ones used to log into CPanel).

  • Navigate to /home/user/minecraft/saves/. In this folder are folders for each world – copy these folders somewhere safe like Dropbox or Google Drive! You may also want to copy over any other files from this directory too (such as plugins)

  • Once everything is backed up safely somewhere else, open CPanel again then go back to File Transfer Protocol (FTP) > Filezilla Client > Filezilla Server Manager > Filesystem > Data Directory Confirm that all plugins are still there and then click Reset Server

Resetting a Minehut server is easy, but make sure you backup before doing so!

  • Make a backup of your server files

  • Backup the files on an external hard drive, or to a cloud storage service like Google Drive or Dropbox

  • Backup the files to a USB drive and keep it somewhere safe in case you need it later

  • Put the backup on CD/DVD if you have an old computer that doesn't support USB drives

Conclusion

By now, you should be familiar with how to reset a Minehut server. If not, don't worry—just follow the steps outlined above!
