- Access Your Server Host Panel: Log in to your server hosting panel. It’s the command center where all the magic happens.
- Find the Update Option: Hosting panels often have a straightforward method to update artifacts. Look for an ‘Update’ button or a dropdown where you can select the latest artifact version.
- Execute the Update: Once you’ve selected the newest artifacts, confirm the update. The panel will work its magic, and your server will be updated without you having to lift a finger.
- Verify the Update: After the process completes, verify that your server is running the updated version. This can usually be seen in the panel’s dashboard.
- Restart if Needed: If your server doesn’t automatically restart after the update, you may need to do it manually. A quick reboot can often solve a multitude of mysteries.
Remember, keeping your server updated with the latest artifacts is not just maintenance; it’s an improvement. With each update, you’re ensuring better performance, security, and features. So, roll up your sleeves, follow these steps, and watch as your server transforms into a more stable, efficient, and joyful place for your players.
