IMPORTANT: Do not set two tasks to run at the same time, they will clash and neither will work properly. For example, if you set up automated backups to occur every 2 hours starting at 12:00AM, do not also set up server restarts to occur every 2 hours at 12:00AM
IMPORTANT: Avoid creating tasks within an hour either side of 04:00 AM to avoid performing scheduled task during our disaster recovery backup window/time.
How to set up automatic backups:
To set up reoccurring automatic backups follow these simple steps:
- Click the "Scheduled Tasks" Button.
- Create a new scheduled task and pick the "Backup Save Data" or "Backup World" option.
- Create a name for the scheduled task.
- Choose a date and time for the first automatic backup.
- Select recur every 1 day.
- Select repeat every (your chosen amount of time) hours.
- Select "For" 24 hours.
- Save the scheduled task.
How to choose time zone:
When logged into the control panel, navigate to My Profile, from here you will see a list of editable content, changing time zone here will change the time that automatic restarts take place, for example if your time zone is set to UTC and you create a restart for 6PM this will take place at 6PM UTC however if you update your time zone to UTC + 2 the server would restart at 8PM UTC
