Set up automatic backups for your Minecraft server

We've made it super easy to set up automatic backups for your Minecraft server to ensure peace of mind.

Head to our game panel at and select your server.

Select the "Schedules" button in the sidebar, then press the "Create Schedule" button.

Set the name of the schedule to something like "Daily backup" then replace the first two boxes of the cron with 0 to make the server run the schedule at midnight every day. You can see examples of more cron expressions by pressing the "Show Cheatsheet" button.

Press "Create Schedule", then select the schedule you just created followed by the "New Task" button.

Click on the "Action" dropdown and select "Create backup", then finally "Create task".

Your daily backup is now set up! You can find backups that are generated via the "Backups" button in the sidebar.
