Server Backup

Recommended Posts

Hello Friends! 

 

Can anyone give me advice on how to correctly back up my Unlimited creative server please? 

 

As of now, I save the Adventure folder and the Creative folder only.  I know that moving the Creative folder to another computer via overwrite works to move my server to another computer so I'm wondering if that's all I need to back up my server on a regular basis.

 

Thanks!

Just backup the folders with the maps you play (like Creative).

Does the server need to be shutdown when doing this, to ensure all databases are closed?  I've been doing that when backing up, but lately I've still been seeing database corruption, generally of one or two of the last items I had accessed before the shutdown.

 

Also, what benefit does "Maintenance Mode" offer, other than preventing new logins?

YES. most definately.

Also using the ingame GM wand command to shut it down, gives the server a better chance of writing everything it need to write to DB/disk.

Thanks... I hadn't considered the wand command.

I have two servers clustered together. Is there a good way to use the wand on that, or should I pick one (the login server?) to shut down that way?

When shutting down select global it shuts the whole cluster down.
