How to Create Automatic Backups
This guide will show you how to properly set up automatic backups in your server.
Note that we also have a guide here explaining scheduled tasks.
Also, please note that the server will keep just the latest three backups. After that, the backups will start getting overwritten so just the latest three are kept.
🔬 Setting Up Automatic Backups 🔬
To set up automatic backups you need to:
Log in to your Multicraft here and stop your server.
Click on Advanced, then Scheduled Tasks.
Click on New Task.
Set up the scheduled task like this and click on Create.
It will be set to Backup as we can set it to whatever we want.
It will be set to Scheduled since we want the task to keep happening.
💠 Scheduled Time
We will open the Scheduled Time section and we will move just the minute's bar to be 5 minutes later, so our task will start in 5 minutes from the actual moment.
We will set it to 1 day, so the task is repeating each day at the same hour.
The command is set to Restart so it will send the message to any player.
The argument will be blank, no need to fill this one.
💠 Run For
We want the command to be run for the entire server, so we will set the Server option in this section.
If you find any issues setting up automatic backups into your server please contact us on live chat or via the ticket system.
