  • Open up the command execution dialogue by pressing the Windows button and R simultaneously.
  • Enter "%appdata%" (without the quotes) and press enter.
  • Got to your .minecraft folder, if you are using a modpack launcher the folder may be labeled .technic or .atlauncher.
  • Enter the folder called saves.
  • This folder contains your created worlds as folders.

If you are using a downloaded map, make sure that it isn't archived (.rar, .zip) and if it is, simply unpack it. After you are don with this preperations, it's time to upload your world.

  • Open up a FTP connection to your server (you can find the credentials in your Gameserver's Webinterface)
  • Navigate to the minecraft folder, if you are running a modpack, this folder may be named minecrafttechnic, minecraftftb or similar.
  • Simply drag the world folder into the directory and wait till the upload is finished

The final step would be to tell the server which world it should use.

  • Open the file either via FTP or your Gameserver's Webinterface.
  • Search for the line containing level-name=
  • Replace the value (everything after the equals mark) with your uploaded folder's name
  • Restart the server

You are now running your own uploaded map.
