How to change your terraria vanilla/tModLoader server version

Note: If you're switching between server types, make sure you switch the type first, and then finally proceed with the version-changing steps below.

Step 1: Access the Startup Page

On the game panel, locate an option or tab labeled "Startup". Click on it to access the server startup configuration.

Step 2: Change Terraria Version

On the Startup page, scroll down to find the "Variables" section.

Depending on whether you have a Terraria Vanilla server or a tModLoader server, you will see different settings:
Terraria Vanilla Server: Locate the setting named "Terraria Version."
tModLoader Server: Locate the setting named "tModLoader Version."

It is crucial to enter the correct version number for a successful update. A single wrong or missing digit in the version number can result in issues.
To find the correct version number:
- For tModLoader: Visit the tModLoader Releases Page to find the version you wish to install.
- For Terraria Vanilla: Visit the Terraria Server Downloads Page to find the version you wish to install.

Click on the field below "Terraria Version" or "tModLoader Version" and enter the correct version number you want to install.

Step 3: Update Terraria Version and Install

Select Your Current Server Type: Just above the Variables section, choose your existing server type from the options.
- Note: If you're planning to switch server type, please refer to the initial note provided at the beginning of this guide.

Wipe Files (Optional): In the same Server type settings section, find the Wipe Files option. Tick this when changing server types or downgrading the terraria version for a clean installation.

Install: Once you've selected your current server type and, if needed, wipe files, click the Install button.
- The installer will begin, downloading and installing the chosen Terraria version.
Important: Do not reload the page while the installer is running, as it will be automatically refreshed upon completion.

Congratulations! You've successfully updated your Terraria server to the desired version. If you encounter any issues during the update process, don't hesitate to contact us via Discord or live chat for assistance.
