Pufferfish is a fork of the popular Paper software, which is used for optimizing and managing Minecraft servers. Pufferfish adds many features that are impossible to achieve on a standard Minecraft server, and each new update can bring numerous benefits for both server administrators and players. Pufferfish, like other Minecraft server modifications, is available in many versions, each introducing entirely new features that enhance gameplay. Our intuitive control panel will help you easily change the version of your Pufferfish server. In this guide, we will show you step-by-step how to properly perform the server version change process for Pufferfish.

How to change version on a Minecraft Pufferfish server

The first thing you should do before changing the Pufferfish server version is to backup the server. Typically, changing the version requires deleting all files and this is an irreversible process. Therefore, if you are afraid that you will want to go back to the previous version, we recommend keeping a backup of the server.

Once you have kept the previous version of the server, you can start preparing for the downgrade. First, you will need to delete all files. To do this, go to the control panel and access the files in the “Files” tab. Select all server files and click “Delete”.

In the new window, you are required to confirm the deletion of files by selecting “Delete” again.

Now, go to the official Pufferfish website and select the server version that suits your expectations. Different versions of Pufferfish are available for different versions of Minecraft, so first select the appropriate game version and then the appropriate server version.

Then, enter the Pufferfish server version in the “BUILD ID” section.
