When running a Minecraft Server, the most important part of your server is likely your world as it holds all of your in-game progress. As a server owner, keeping this world safe should be one of your top priorities. This is why here at Apex, we have created a world backup and restore system. This backup system allows you to create backups of your world that can be restored at any time. This is especially useful if you run into any problems such as griefers, world corruption, or other world-destroying problems. You can restore the backups simply from the Apex game panel and we will be walking you through each step on how to.

The backup system in this guide is only directed towards Minecraft: Java Edition and does not work yet for Bedrock Edition.

How to restore a backup

  1. Head to the Game Panel and stop the server.
  2. To the left of the game panel, click on the “Backup” tab.
  3. Locate which world/date you want to restore and press “Restore” to the right of it.
  4. Head back to the main page of the game panel and open the console tab. In the console, wait until the message “Done, returned ok” displays. Once it does, go ahead and start the server back up.


Common Issues

Backup is still not restored on the server
If your backup is not restored when you connect to the server, it can be a variety of things causing the issue. Make sure that when you restored the backup the server was offline. Also, keep in mind that the backup system only holds 1 automatic backup at once and it will overwrite it each day. It’s possible that the backup you are trying to restore to is too late.
