How Do I Copy a Whole Discord Server?

Discord is a popular platform for creating online communities, and sometimes you may find yourself in a situation where you want to copy an entire Discord server. Whether it’s to create a backup, move the server to a different account, or replicate it for another purpose, this tutorial will guide you through the process step by step.

Step 1: Creating a New Server

To copy a Discord server, you first need to create a new server that will serve as the destination for the copied content. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Open Discord and log in to your account.
  2. Click on the plus icon on the left side of the screen to create a new server.
  3. Choose a name for your new server and optionally add an icon.
  4. Select your preferred region and click on the “Create” button.

Step 2: Adding Bots (Optional)

If you have any bots in the original server that you want to include in the copied version, make sure to invite them to your new server. This step is optional but can be useful if you rely on specific bots for moderation or other functionalities.

  • Visit the website of the bot you want to add (e.g., Dyno, MEE6).
  • Login with your Discord account and authorize the bot.
  • Select your new server from the dropdown menu and grant necessary permissions.

Step 3: Copying Channels and Categories

The next step is to recreate the channels and categories from the original server in your new server. This process requires manual setup, but it ensures that all the channels are identical in the copied server.

  1. In your new server, right-click on an empty space below the existing channels.
  2. Select “Create Category” to create a category.
  3. Right-click on the newly created category and select “Create Text Channel” or “Create Voice Channel” to add channels within that category.
  4. Repeat this process for all categories and channels you want to copy.

Step 4: Copying Roles and Permissions

Roles and permissions play a crucial role in maintaining order and control within a Discord server. To ensure that your copied server retains these settings, follow these steps:

  1. In your original server, open the “Server Settings” by clicking on the dropdown arrow next to the server name.
  2. Select “Roles” from the left sidebar.
  3. Click on each role individually, take note of their permissions and settings, and recreate them in your new server by going to its “Server Settings” → “Roles”.

Step 5: Copying Members (Optional)

If you want to copy members from the original server into your new one, you can invite them manually or use a bot like Carl-bot or MEE6. These bots have features that allow you to transfer members between servers easily.

  • Invite one of these bots to both servers following steps similar to those described in Step 2.
  • Use their respective commands (e., !transfer) to transfer members from the original server to the new one.

By following these steps, you will be able to copy an entire Discord server, including channels, categories, roles, and permissions. Remember that some elements, such as messages and voice chat history, cannot be copied due to technical limitations. It’s always a good practice to inform your community members about any changes or transfers happening to ensure a smooth transition.
