    You have propably incorrect backup.date.format in config.properties
    Set to backup.date.format=yyyy-MM-dd hh-mm-ss, the best format x.x

    backup.message.ending=Backup done!
    backup.message.starting=World backing up!
    save.message.starting=[SimpleSave] Beginning world save
    save.message.ending=[SimpleSave] Ending world save
    backup.date.format=yyyy-MM-dd hh-mm-ss
    Is it ok? It wont save to the directory

    Not trying to be disrespectful but the whole "not smart enough" thing is pretty lame. I've been running a server 24/7 since before Beta, and i've never had to do save-all untill using this plug. How was i supposed to know? Just seems kinda rude to those of us who do have lots of admin'ing under our belt. Your plugin was nice when it worked but it caused some serious damage to our world and i'm pretty sure that was before you put that text at the top of page.

    1) If I want a backup after 8 hours (three times a day) and if my friends are on for less than 8 hours, a timer depending on somebody being logged in will not trigger. Reading the docs and the thead did suggest that your plugin would not make any backup unless somebody plays for a complete backup interval.
    OTOH, I don't want to have backups unless a player did something in the world. Therefore I should opt to not backup unless a player is online. But if I did some work and left the server, I'd want to have a backup if 8 hours have passed since the last backup even if the server was empty. If the backup is done on the first join, I'll be happy.

    1b) The new changelog does suggest that I'd get a lot of backups if the only player disconnects frequently. Or to make it short, I'm confused by the documentation.

    2) Pretending a backup happend in 1970 is a way to simplify programming logic. You don't need to check for the first backup and do things differently.
    3) Why do you default to an unsafe setting? What's the advantage of disallowing the server to safe the worlds automatically?

    1b) You'd get a lot of backups if players leave and disconnect rapidly when they are the only people on the server
    2) Still don't understand this
    3) It's not unsafe. It prevents incremental saving by the minecraft server inbetween save intervals.

    On server I play we have same problem people described here, we lost everything we were doing for few hour at morning (like after long pause without players on server), It happens not always but very often. Hope you will find the issue, but I would suggest mentioning that something may be wrong in first post to stop even more flame that there already is in this topic. :)

    That's what I guessed. You should look at the time of the last backup and don't do a backup if it's not time yet.
    If you are comparing the current time to the time of the last backup, you'll need a last backup time. Either you'll put an "if(have_backup)" around the part that checks it, or you let the time of the backup default to long_long_ago if there is no backup.
    If the server goes down, it should safe. Can you do a safe on plugin unload? It will also safe when reloading plugins, but that woulf be OK for me.

    Never mind found it. Is there a way to restore deleted backups?
  13. Offline


    It's generally advised to do save-all before stop anyway.

    The plugin deleted some of my backups. Can I restore them?
  16. Offline


    No, you had your backup history too low then.

    Why is the default so low then? :/

    Because you're supposed to change it.

    I've been having a problem recently where the plugin continuously backs up over and over even though the timer is set to 90 minutes. It will work fine for about the first 24 hours, then after that this problem will begin. Here is my configuration:
    #SimpleSave Config File
    #Sun Jul 10 12:55:56 EDT 2011
    backup.message.ending=Backup complete.
    backup.message.starting=Hourly world backup commencing.
    save.message.starting=Beginning world save
    save.message.ending=Ending world save
    backup.date.format=yyyy-MM-dd hh-mm-ss
    Any ideas?

    Conflicting plugin, or you turned on 'save-on'
    Known error, tests being done to fix it.

    checked the thread quickly, couldn't see an answer, so.

    is there a max you can set for backup.history.length? if so, what is the limit?

    However much your hard drive will hold, though this certainly isn't advisable.

    Same problem here. My backups end up only spanning a couple of hours even though they should span most of a day. This is really an issue that should be known to anyone downloading the plugin. Since the issue creeps in after everything working normally for a while this could cause some serious problems for unsuspecting admins.

    In the next version, could you remove the "player join, heres var s 3" please?
  26. Offline


    I am having the same back up problem as everyone else... i want it to be every 12 hours but it is now doing it abou1 1 every 5 minutes.. very annoying...

    Also I'm with Nitnelave only i would add to remove the simple save notification on every player join altogether.. I KNOW what the current save and backup interval is... I SET IT!

    Sorry didn't want to read through 36 pages to see if it was. Also I didnt want to seem rude but i do fail at getting points across in text.

    Anyway... is it possible to fix ( again, not reading through 36 pages...) the backup issue by instead of having it set to every so many minutes to recoding it to backup at specified times? Or would that not be plausible?

    I'm having a problem with the /ssBackup command. It says only OPs can use the command but for some reason everyone can use it, op or not. I removed myself as an op to be sure and i can still use the command. To test further i put myself in the default group in my permissions and for some reason they can still use it.

    Am i missing something really basic here?

    I noticed a problem with this plugin after installing BigBrother, if your already aware of this issue forgive me. Regardless of how I set the back-up feature (either off or VERY [960] long intervals) it attempts to backup, runs into errors, and kicks the populace of my server into digital oblivion.

    Otherwise, I've been using this plugin for a long time and its great :p I may just abandon the mem heavy bigbrother to retain the use of this plugin.
