Java (MC) , Bedrock (MC)

Step 1: Getting to Realm Configuration

To see the Backup of your realm, you must go to your minecraft client (the game itself) and click “Realms” from the loading screen. From there, you must click the 🔧wrench Icon on the realm, aka Realm Configuration.

In Filezilla (or your SFTP client), go to your desktop (Or your memorable save location) on the left pane and drag and drop the ENTIRE world folder into your Skynode server.

After the upload finishes, you can start your server and your realm to server world transfer is complete.
