Server Restarts/Backups

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:

  • I've been having issues with running Eco servers on here. I've noticed that when I hit restart manually to enact server changes, it doesnt save the current world state. I have also set the to back up twice an hour, every hour, every day.

    My issue is that the server is both:

    1. Not saving the world data on manual restarts, and there is also no option to prompt it to.
    2. The backups are not working correctly, and will typically only do one a day.

    Anyone else had similar troubles and found fixes? I migrated from G-Portal for the increased control, but so far its only brought me trouble. (My friends are close to completely giving up as this game is time intensive and they keep getting reset after an entire days work)

    I also read that auto-restarts will automatically save and update the world file, so for now I have it set for twice a day. I'll see how that goes. (Although the server takes ages to come back up because it gets caught in a restart loop for 5-10 minutes)
