Wiping Private Server

Hey guys,

I experimented a little with the Island Editor and wanted to totally remake everything. Not only the Map, I wanted to delete all characters, all spawned creatures, all structures build. And I thought with Reinstalling the Server that would wipe everything but there is nothing happening. I do that and start the server new upload my map I made from scratch and when I log in. Same character. Same Position, Same Structures, Same crew. I don't know how to reset the server completely fresh.

Unfortunately, this is hard to do, or at least time consuming.

On server 1, install Atlas Expansion server. If you don't, and you uninstall Atlas, you cannot reinstall it on your own. Been waiting for Nitrado to fix this for me for a week.

Install Atlas main on all your other servers. Same reason as above.

Uninstall Atlas main on server 1, uninstall expansion on all your expansion servers.

Reinstall all.

You have now wiped all data off your servers. Unfortunately, wiping a server the traditional way will not work.

I don't know if that helps but I wanted to delete ocean.atlas because I was having problems with some islands don't be harvestable. I deleted them while the server was running and on restart the server recreated it. So it didn't work. But when I stopp the server and delete files from the "saved" folder then they are gone forever and created new. maybe that helps on trying to wipe. But I don't know. As long as we don't have full access to all files needed for the server like the .json data its a problem.
