How Do I Join an Old Server on Discord?


Heather Bennett

Do you want to join an old server on Discord? Whether it’s a server that you were once a part of or one that has been around for a while, joining an old server on Discord is relatively simple. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to successfully join and reconnect with your old community.

Step 1: Accessing the Discord Application

The first step in joining an old server on Discord is to open the Discord application. If you haven’t installed it yet, head over to the Discord website and download the application suitable for your operating system. Once downloaded and installed, launch the application by clicking on its icon.

Step 2: Logging into Your Account

If you already have a Discord account, enter your login credentials (email/phone number and password) in the provided fields. If you don’t have an account yet, click on the “Register” button and follow the prompts to create one.

Step 3: Navigating to Servers

After logging in, you’ll be directed to your home screen. On the left-hand side of your screen, locate and click on the “Servers” icon (it looks like a small joystick). This will open up a list of servers that you are currently a member of or have access to.


  • If you see any servers listed here that match the one you are trying to join, skip directly to Step 5.
  • If not, continue with Step 4.

Step 4: Adding a Server by Invitation Link

To join an old server on Discord that you are not currently a part of, you will need an invitation link. This link is generated by the server’s administrators or members with the appropriate permissions.

Once you have obtained the invitation link from a friend or by other means, click on the “+” icon located at the bottom-left corner of your screen. This will open a window with two options: “Create a Server” and “Join a Server”. Click on “Join a Server”.

A new window will appear, prompting you to enter the invitation link. Paste the link into the text field and click on the “Join” button.

If the server is public, you will be instantly added to it. If it is private, you may need to wait for approval from one of the server’s administrators.

Step 5: Finding an Old Server You Were Previously a Part Of

If you were once a member of an old server but can’t find it in your server list, don’t worry! Discord has a feature called “Server Discovery” that allows users to search for and join public servers.

To access this feature, click on the magnifying glass icon located near your profile picture in the bottom-left corner of your screen. This will open up Server Discovery.

Step 6: Using Server Discovery to Find Old Servers

In Server Discovery, you can explore various categories and filter servers based on your interests or specific keywords related to your old server.

  • Browse through categories such as Gaming, Education, Art & Design, etc., or use the search bar at the top to enter keywords related to your old server (e.g., its name).
  • Clicking on a server’s name will display more information about it.
  • Once you find your old server, click on the “Join” button to become a member again.

Step 7: Reconnecting with Your Old Community

Now that you have successfully joined the old server on Discord, take some time to catch up with your old community. Say hello, engage in conversations, and reminisce about the good times you had together.

Remember to familiarize yourself with any new rules or guidelines that may have been implemented since you were last a member. Server administrators or moderators can provide you with this information if needed.

Enjoy reconnecting with your old server and have fun interacting with your friends!
