    Hello there, i have a question.

    I ran a server on VPS, with CentOS. I wanted to make backup of my server at my home, will downloading the world while its running corrupt it ?

    no because you are only "reading" the files, as long as you dont write to them you are fine

    You should disable saving before downloading the world, to ensure you get a good and consistent copy.
    You can enable saving after you're done downloading again.

    I do regular backups with the server running and people logged on, Just use /save-off before you start and /save-on when it is finished. That will make sure nothing changes midcopy.
