First, the reason why when you compress your world folder and it becomes a TAR file is because our server is running on Linux, that's why it isn't on ZIP type.


Go to any TAR to ZIP Website converter like this one CloudConvert

Upload your File Select Convert

Once it is done, there will be a Download Button

It will now be in a .ZIP format which can be opened on most modern PCs without third party software.
