How to Rollback to a Previous Save

This article will present you with the steps necessary to roll your ARK: Survival Evolved server back to a previous save point.


Step 1: Log into your ARK server’s control panel

Step 2: Go into your File Manager > \ShooterGame\Saved\SavedArks\ and look for your "TheIsland.ark" file. (Please Note: If you are using a different map, look for the files with that map name instead, example: TheCenter.ark or Valhalla.ark)

Step 3: Change the file name of "TheIsland.ark" to anything but that (for example, old save, etc…).

Step 4: Next, find the save file that you want to rollback to, it should be in the same folder and be called something like:"TheIsland_(date that you want to roll back to)_05.32.05.ark".

Step 5: Now, change that filename to "TheIsland.ark".
