How to upload a single-player Ark Save to your Server

Getting your Save Locally

Open Steam on your PC and right click on Ark Survival Evolved and select Properties.

Select the "Local Files" on the left side. Then select the "Browse" option.

Under the following path you will find your saves: /steamapps/common/ARK/ShooterGame/Saved/SavedArksLocal.

In this directory you will find 3 files:

.ark -> contains your saved world
.arkprofile -> contains your player data
.arktribe -> contains the tribe info

You will need to upload all 3 of these files.

Uploading the Save

Head to the file Manager and navigate to the following directory: /ShooterGame/Saved/SavedArks

Upload your files into this folder.

Change the name of the file localplayer.arkprofile by replace localplayer with your SteamId64.

Note: if you don’t know your steamid64 you can look it up Here

Finally change the map in the startup tab to the same name of the file you uploaded and then restart your server.
