MineBackup - Automatically save and backup your server!
- Numerous backup actions: Save (default); Copy and/or Compress. The copy action creates a copy of files in backup folder while the compress action creates a zip of files in backup folder. You do not need to enable both for compress to work.
- Numerous upload actions: Dropbox; FTP. These actions will upload the latest compressed version, so you will need to be using compression.
- Maintenance action: Cleanup. With this action enabled, old backups will only be deleted as scheduled (otherwise they will be deleted after a copy/compress action).
- Each action has a configurable interval. You can even set a specific time that an action should trigger (only once per day). Every action supports either method.
- You can either enable actions globally (default for all worlds) or enable/disable actions for specific worlds. Specific worlds can even have different time intervals for each action!
- Global or per world configurable amount of backups to be kept on disc. So a world that is rarely used can be compressed every few hours and set to have less copies retained.
- Global or per world configurable broadcast of backup status.
- Setting to enable an immediate backup on server restart/reload with configurable delay. With this disabled (default), scheduled actions will occur at their proper time, but if the server was stopped during that time, then it will run as soon as possible.
- Backup actions are staggered to try to prevent low-powered servers from getting overloaded. Instead of checking every world at one time and in order, a queue is checked once a minute to see if it needs to do a backup action.
- If no one has used the world since the last backup ("not dirty") then its actions are skipped.
- Able to backup plugins/other directories with a list of excluded paths (like dynmap's /tiles) and file types.
- Customizable messages. Everything sent to players is able to be translated or changed. Including broadcast groups.
- Configuration migration with a backup copy of the original configuration.
Does your server have a single-core processor or a low amount of memory (512mb and several plugins)?
Do NOT enable compression! Only enable copy.
Does your server operate over a typical home internet connection?
Do NOT enable dropbox or ftp!
Failure to understand this will almost certainly result in all of your players being disconnected.
[v0.5+] Due to changes to the old backup deletion code, the plugin will not automatically delete any v0.4 backups. You will need to manually delete them at an appropriate time.
[v5.9.2+] If you still have the old map format (world height 128) files in your world folders, it's going to yell at you on server startup. Once you have a backup of the world, delete level.dat_mcr and the *.mcr files in the region folder. They aren't needed after the conversion and double the size/time of the backup.
[v5.9.3+] Enable 'debug' in config.yml for a detailed list of the settings that are being used as each world/plugins is loaded. (Exact times are seconds from midnight, but stored as a negative number.)
Setup & Usage
Only save is enabled by default. You need to enable either 'copy' or 'compress'.

ThisIsAreku for the original MineBackup. This plugin has now been completely re-imagined and rewritten. The only thing untouched and unchanged is the name itself.
