How to:

Log into our server control panel.

Click 'Manage' to open your server.

Log into your server via SFTP, follow our guide on how to do so here, if you are unsure.

Within your server in FileZilla, navigate to the folder at: /.config/unity3d/IronGate/Valheim/worlds/

Drag and Drop all your existing world files into the folder.

On the control panel, go to Configuration, then Startup Parameters.

Set the 'World Name' value to the name of the world that you uploaded, then press enter.
The world name is the string of charecters that make up the file names of the world save we uploaded in the previous steps, this case being 'Dedicated'.

Restart your server and it should now be running your world!
