I need help with changing my serverfiles folder for my balena minecraft server.

Project I use https://www.balena.io/blog/how-to-create-a-minecraft-server-for-the-pi-4-with-balena/

I cant paste my new map into it’s serverfiles folder, it always says i have to abort. I cant rename the folder or anything in it, move anything into the folder, delete anything in the folder etc. Please help me

Can you provide us with a little more information about your set-up? How are you accessing the Minecraft server? What platform are you on?


#status User is having difficulty customizing the RPi4 Minecraft server to allow adding his own maps. In Linux installs of the game, permissions need to be set, which is likely on other host OSes. This could be his issue. I’ve asked for more details.

I pretty much do what this says to the point https://www.balena.io/blog/how-to-create-a-minecraft-server-for-the-pi-4-with-balena/ i use raspberry pi 4 and winscp

Hi Johan,

Can you show us the exact error messages that WinSCP gives you?
