  • We want to back up our Project Zomboid server (particularly critical data such as character and map data) manually via FTP. Connecting to the server via FTP is no problem, but after attempting to download only the zomboid/profile/Zomboid folder, I quickly get capped at an incredibly low download speed:


    The download speed fluctuates, but generally speaking, it would take several days for me to download our server data. I've been in touch with Nitrado support, and they claim I should "check my internet connection". My internet speed is OK:


    Does anyone know of a fix? We're trying to back up our server so we can try out some mods without placing our current progress at risk. I'd be satisfied with a manual backup option on the Nitrado web UI, but there appears to be none.
