Works with 1.10.x and up
If you have any problems with the plugin not working leave a comment!
What can I use this for?
Simple Backup is a plugin to zip up your minecraft server worlds to a folder so you can:
- Let your users download them via file sharing websites such as mediafire
- Roll back your map
- /sbackup - Force a backup of your world by running. Can only be ran by OPs or from the server console.
Providing error reports:
When pasting large amounts of text please use http:pastebin.com or http:dev.bukkit.org/paste/. They are completely free and makes it easier for me to read any error messages you provide.
Also provide your SimpleBackup config file and the version of the plugin you are using, when stating you have a problem, so I can see if that's the problem instead.

This plugin is generally updated when a significant change (new features or bugfixes) has been made to it. The plugin uses only a small number of very basic Bukkit API calls, so it most probably won't break on Bukkit updates. If it does break, we'll update it as soon as possible.
Want to help me out?
You can donate to Simple Backup if you love the plugin to bits and want to show me some support by clicking the donate button in the top right! Don't want to or can't donate?, then just leave a comment showing me support instead.
Thanks for any support you give me, and enjoy simple backup!
The source code for this plugin can be found on Github here: SimpleBackup Git Repository

hey any one no hot to fix a server that want start up it dont even give me feedback either it just wont start i hate this websie
Will this work with 1.7.5? Thank you.
The worlds are in folders, Plugins is a folder but the banned-players.txt is a text file in the server folder how do I back that up without backing up the whole server folder?
Working well in 1.7 with spigot on debian 7 wheezy thanks :)
how do i change backup path to my other hard drive on Ubuntu
If I happen to be initiating a command while the Simple Backup starts its backup it ends up kicking me from the game. Then I actually have to completely quit minecraft and restart the launcher to get back in the game.
I am using 1.7.2 and spigot
The plugin creates a folder in 'plugins' upon startup. So just start the server with the jar in the plugins folder and you should have a folder named 'SimpleBackup' which contains the configuration files.
Looks promising, but I can not really test or implement it. I am new to Minecraft server and Bukkit plugins.
Which file contains the configuration? I cannot seem to find this being mentioned anywhere on the page. I tried to put it into the configuration.yml, but this file gets overwritten with default settings after each backup.
It's working just fine for me.
This work with 1.7?
With linux zip command, you can add exclusions. Could you add that into this plugin? I'd like to backup plugins folder but exclude *.jar (all jars) and dynmap/* (dynmap directory). Thanks :)
To stop automatic backups, please, set backup-intreval to 0.
Sorry for the delay and thank you for the detailed information.
It seems that TagCraftMC_Peace, TagCraftMC_PVP, TagCraftMC_Spawn, TagCraftMC_VIPShops are worlds. You don't need to list them explicitly in the backup-folders tag. Please, remove them and try to run backup to see what happens. The plugin should backup the worlds before the listed folders. Leave backup-folders as:
How configure this plugin to do not automatic backup ?
Good point, I have updated the description as you suggested.
Hello, your plugin is nice, but when people read bukkit's version, he was afraid :p
Perhaps just make a new version tag 1.6.4 or 1.7.2 ?
All working good, but new user are reassured.

Thanks for the help mantun.
It seems it tries to backup the TagCraftMC_Peace folder twice. Can you, please, post your config file, the complete log (from 'backup starting' to 'backup complete'), and whatever was logged at server startup/reload (tagged with '[SimpleBackup]'). This will help us diagnose the problem and probably offer solutions.
Every time my automated back up happens the plugin throws an error and does not complete the back which seems to result in a part corrupt zip file.
Once it hit's the error it just finishes the backup regardless if it has completed all the files/folders yet. It back's up the other worlds + plugins files correctly.
