I am wanting to back up my Ark Server, and switch over to an Atlas server.  I want to be able to go back and put up the Ark Server though.  So how do I make a back up of my Ark server that i can unpack and play again after i switch back from Atlas?

Log into FTP for your server, and then save everything inside the /ShooterGame/Saved/ folder to a local backup on your PC. 

To edit/upload/save/delete files via FTP, use the following method:
 

  1. Stop your server from the panel
  2. Log in to FTP using WinSCP (a free FTP software) using the connection details found in the "FTP Details" section of the game server control panel
  3. Navigate to the directory you wish to upload or edit a file
  4. After uploading your files in the proper directories, start your server from the panel

You may found a download link for WinSCP here: http://winscp.net/eng/download.php
