A Guide to Creating Backups

Backing up your server is a crucial task when you’re a server owner. If anything bad happens to your server, such as griefing and/or unintentional actions, you’ll be able to revert those changes. In this article, we’ll give you a quick and easy explanation of how to create backups for your server within the Game Panel.

  1. Log in to the Game Panel, then choose a server.
  2. Navigate to the “Backups” tab.
  3. Click on “Create backup”. image
  4. Insert a name into the “Backup name” field.
  5. If needed, you can exclude any files or folders by inserting their names into the “Ignored files & directories” field. You can also use wildcards. Please refer to the table below:

    Wildcard Function Example
    * Replaces any number of characters *.jar excludes all .jar files
        /home/container/plugins/* excludes all folders/files in the “plugins” directory
        *ava excludes all fles/folders that ends with “ava”
    ? Replaces a single character F?ile = Fole / File / Fale / Fele / Fule
    [] Specifies a set of characters to match, - specifies a range of consecutive characters [Jj]ava = Java / java
        • folder[1-3] = folder1 / folder2 / folder3

    If you wish to exclude multiple files or folders, you must type them on separate lines.

  6. You can choose to lock the backup. Locking it will prevent the backup from being unintentionally deleted by a user. You can always unlock it later.
  7. Click on “Start Backup”. image

You can also delete, restore, and download the backup to your device by clicking the 3 dots to the right of the backup!
