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.
