Did you know that Minecraft Host features server backups? Backing up your server often can minimize damage done by unstable mods, griefers, or, everybody’s favourite, Creepers. In general, it’s a good idea to backup your server before updating your version of CraftBukkit or making any major changes to your server.
To backup your world file, click on ‘Files’ on the Profile page and after click on ‘Backup’, then ‘Start’. Once this is complete, you will be able to use either the built in Multicraft FTP client or an FTP client of your choice to download the file.
To restore a backup, there are a few steps you must follow. First, make sure you've set a world name for your server under the main server settings page. If you are just using the default settings, you can set this to 'world'. Next, you will need to delete your current world folder.To do so, click on 'Files' and then 'FTP File Access'. Here you will need to enter your Multicraft password and then click 'Login'. Click the checkbox beside your world folder and then click on 'Delete'. Click on Submit to have the folder deleted. Failure to delete this folder will result in the backup not being restored. Once this has been completed, go back to the main server page (Servers >> My Servers). Click 'Backup' and then 'Restore'. Here, you will see a list of the different backups you have made. When you've identified the backup you wish to restore, click on 'Restore' on the right hand side of the page.
** Please note that the backup feature only makes a copy of your world folder and does not backup any of your mods or other custom content. To make a full backup, please use an FTP client to download all of your files. **
