I'm looking for something that will automatically force a save on my server and backup the world file to somewhere safe. I tried Mine Auto however I could not get it to work and it now appears that the server hosting the files is offline so I cant re-download to continue trying to trouble shoot it.
Is there an automatic backup utility out there that would work?
i have no idea what your talking about.
i use my method and it works the way i need it to is all i can say.
You need to issue at a minimum a "save-all" command to the minecraft console before copying the world files to my knowledge.
I've seen several docs that even recommend:
1: Issue "save-off" to console
2: issue "save-all" to console
3: backup files
4: issue "save-on" to console.
This is easy to script on linux, but I have no clue how it would be done on windows without the aid of a server mod with built-in backups.
