Rust by default will automatically save every
10 minutes (600 seconds). Some users may wish to reduce this time to ensure that they do not lose any progress if their server crashes unexpectedly or if their server is restarted without previously saving.
If the autosave interval is too low, this can also have adverse effects. For example: If a player loses items due to death and cannot reach them, the autosaving may save the server in this state, meaning you will not be able to roll the server back to before this happened.

4. Save your file and start your server.

If you wish to revert this back to default settings, instead remove the
server.saveinterval setting, save and restart your server.
