Backup Valheim Dedicated Server – World Folder Paths / Guide
Backups during Valheim’s early access period are extremely important. My dedicated server has already experienced the dreaded “world eater” bug. One time was during the very first update and the second time was during a routine restart. What happens is the world will be exactly the same (generated from the same seed) but any modifications/buildings/anything you did will be gone.
This guide will show you where to find the files and how to back them up/restore them!
