How to Manually Backup Your Minecraft Server

We have a video tutorial for creating a manual backup:


Backups can be used to recover your server data in the case of any file loss or griefing. This guide explains how to create a backup.

  1. Log in to the Minecraft control panel and navigate to Files > Backup.
    Manual Backup - Panel

  2. On the Backup page, click Start.
    Manual Backup - Start Backup

  3. Once a message appears above the start button just like the one shown in the screenshot below, you have successfully created a backup!
    Manual Backup - Complete

  4. To take is a step further, we recommend downloading the backup to your own computer via FTP. Click here for the tutorial: How to use FileZilla for FTP File Management

It is also possible to automatically create backups so you do not have to manually create one each time. You can view our tutorial on creating automatic backups here: How to Automatically Backup Your Minecraft Server

To restore a previously created backup, follow our guide here: Restore Server Backups
