How Do I Archive a Discord Server?


Heather Bennett

Discord is a popular communication platform used by gamers, communities, and businesses alike. Over time, Discord servers can accumulate a large amount of data and messages.

To keep your server organized and ensure that important information is not lost, it’s a good idea to archive your Discord server. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of archiving a Discord server step by step.

Step 1: Accessing Server Settings

To begin archiving your Discord server, you need to have administrative privileges for that server. Open Discord and navigate to the server you want to archive.

On the left-hand side of the screen, look for the server name and click on it. This will open up the server settings.

Step 2: Server Overview

Once you are in the server settings, locate the “Overview” tab on the left-hand side menu and click on it. Here you will find an overview of your server’s information.

Step 4: Archive Server

In the Server Settings menu, look for the “Delete Server” option at the very bottom of all settings. Click on it to initiate archiving process.


Before archiving your server, take a moment to consider the following points:

  • Archiving a server will remove it from your server list.
  • You will no longer have access to the server’s channels, messages, and members.
  • If you want to access the server again in the future, you will need an invite from someone with administrative privileges.

Step 5: Confirm Archiving

After clicking on “Delete Server,” Discord will prompt you to confirm the archiving action. Read the warning carefully and make sure you understand the consequences before proceeding. If you are certain about archiving your server, click on “Archive Server” to complete the process.
