How to create a Minecraft backup on GPORTAL
With just a few clicks you have created your Minecraft backup on your GPORTAL server.
How to create a backup via the web interface:
- Log on to our website
- Click on “My Server” in the menu on the left
- Select the server
- Click on “Backup” in the “Administration” menu on the left
- Click on “Create Backup“
- The server stops for the backup
- After creating the backup, the server restarts automatically
- Alternatively, click on “Restart“
Important No backups can be created between 19:00 and 21:00 (CET).
Minecraft save game state
If you want to create a backup of your own Minecraft server, this is also possible. If you have administrator rights, you can simply enter the command “/save-all” in the chat.
Alternatively, you can use direct input in the console of the server with “/save-all“.
Saving game files and the Minecraft world
In order to backup an entire Minecraft world, for example, things get a bit more detailed. It does not matter what kind of server is used.
For root servers, vServers or local home servers, you can use an FTP client (e. g. FileZilla) for your backups. In the navigation directory, you can copy out the entire Minecraft folder and paste it to a safe place. If the old state is then needed, it can be pasted again in the same way: Copy the backed up folder and paste it into the Minecraft server’s navigation directory.
