Here is a list of basic Minecraft server commands that you should know to operate a Minecraft server. For a more complete list, see the Minecraft Wiki.

You can enter these commands directly into the server command prompt window or proceed them with a slash (/) in the chat window in-game (as long as you have operator permission).

ban <player-name>Bans the indicated player and adds their name to "banned-players.txt"
ban-ip <ip-address>Bans the indicated player's IP address and adds it to "banned-ips.txt"
deop <player-name>Removes the indicated player from "ops.txt" if present
kick <player-name>Kicks the indicated player (they can rejoin)
op <player-name>Gives the indicated player operator permission by adding name to "ops.txt"
pardon <player-name>Removes the indicated player's name from "banned-players.txt" if present
pardon-ip <ip-address>Removes the indicated IP address from "banned-ips.txt" if present
save-allSaves the world
sayBroadcasts a message to all players on the server
stopSaves the world and shuts down the server
tp <player-name> Teleports one player to another player's location

All that the server is doing is it is hosting a world. just look inside the folder you used and put in a different world inside the world folder.
