How to Install Behaviour Packs on a Bedrock Server

Having Behaviour Packs in your Bedrock world may make things a little more snazzy and interesting in the server/world.

Today, we will teach you how to install Behaviour Packs on a Bedrock Server

Download the world:

We will first need to download the world. You will need to use SFTP for this. We have a guide on how to use and connect to your server using SFTP here

Find the world in which you would like to use and download the world onto your computer.

Import the world into Singleplayer:

At the moment, you are only able to install Behaviour packs in single-player. This requires us to import the world into our single-player worlds. To do this, Open File Explorer. Head to the following location in file explorer:


Note: Replace <username> with your computer's username!
Drag the folder into the current location in the file explorer. Restart the game. This will allow the game to load all the worlds including the new world you just imported

To add a Behaviour Pack:

Double click the .mcpack file on your computer. This will launch Minecraft and start the import. Once the import has finished, you are able to click the world settings icon (pencil icon) and find the “My Packs” section.

Select the Behaviour pack and click “Activate”. Load into the world and see if the Behaviour pack is functioning correctly

Time to export the world:

Head back into the menu and click the world settings icon (pencil icon). Scroll down until you see an “Export World” button. Click the button. Select a safe place for the world to be located at. Remember this as it is important!

Upload the world:

Now that the Behaviour pack is installed on the world, we need to import the world into our server. Open the SFTP program of choice and connect to your server.

Drag the new world (With the Behaviour pack) into where the old world is located on the server (Without the Behaviour pack). This will replace the world with the new world which includes the Behaviour pack. Once completed, restart the server.

You are now able to join the server and use the Behaviour pack(s) that you have installed!
