Moving over existing Minecraft server files is a common practice for server administrators who want to migrate their server to a new hosting provider, upgrade to a recent version of Minecraft, or make changes to the server's configuration or settings. By moving over existing server files, administrators can preserve essential data, such as player profiles, inventories, and game progress, and ensure a smooth and seamless transition to the new server environment.
