Hi, i am trying to move my existing world that has been created on a vanilla minecraft server to a vanilla server run using AMP and am getting this error constantly?

java.nio.file.AccessDeniedException: .\World2020\region\r.-1.0.mca

Plus another load of Java garbage output.

I have checked the folder permissons and it has all full control nothing wrong.

This is on Windows Server 2019

New install of AMP, new Instance of Minecraft.

I have set the world name, downloaded the latest version of the server 1.16.1 same as the other server, I have even moved the server.jar that I downloaded from the minecraft website over to AMP and have specified that instead and still nothing.

Any ideas?

How did you copy the world files over?

I just copied the world folder into the new instance folder under Minecraft and then set the world name in AMP

How did you make the copy? Did you use AMPs built in SFTP or some other way? If you did it by dragging and dropping in Windows explorer then you've damaged the permissions.

I did just drag and drop in windows explorer. Does that not work?

How can I use the SFTP? Just filezilla to the IP of the server?

Thank you, using SFTP has solved my issue.
