    I finally managed to port my BackupPlugin to Bukkit.
    You can find the original thread at Hey0's forum

    There are some changes and issues with porting to Bukkit:
    Console commands won't work at all, also the plugin does not force a world save nor disables saving for the progress of backuping! This will be fixed when it's possible to access console commands with Bukkit.
    Also there are some new config options. As there is currently no user rights management, you need to specify all authorized users in the config. Also you now need to set your world name in there.

    All other parts of the plugin haven't changed (especially automatic backups and ingame commands are working), so expect the same bugs/issues! Feel free to modify my work if you want and can, because I can't actively develop for some weeks, so don't expect big updates from me. But I know there are other talented plugin developers out there :)

    BackupPlugin v0.8.5

    This plugin allows you to create world backups or to generate world maps automatically or via ingame command.

    • /backup <force> (optional) - backups your world data
    • /map <force> (optional) - generates map(s) of your world
    • /breload - reloads BackupPlugin configuration file
    • /loglevel <level> - sets log level
    Valid arguments for force are true & false. Using a command with true will result in a forced cache rebuilt, useful if you want to avoid the cache-lifetime for any reason.
    Valid arguments for log level are FINEST, FINE, INFO, WARNING or SEVERE (case sensitive!), default is INFO. FINE & FINEST will generate debug output.
    Valid arguments for time unit are SECONDS, MINUTES, HOURS, DAYS (case sensitive!), default is MINUTES.


    This plugin will generate a properties file in your server home (BackupPlugin.properties)
    Here are two examples:

    Standard properties file (for mcmap): here
    My properties file (for c10t): here

    • full version history
    Future Updates
    Known Issues / Bugs
    • spaces in folder structure will lead to fail of mapping!
    • windows paths only work if double backslash is used (for example C:\\temp\\world-maps\\ )
    • 0 byte zips sometimes
    • fail of backup because of tmp_chunk.dat (will be fixed in a future bukkit version)
    If you find something that's not working, please set loglevel to FINEST and paste your server logs along with the BackupPlugin.properties here in this thread, or send it to me via pm. Also it would help to know your OS and java version. I'll probably look into it then!

    Are there any plans to continue work on this plugin? It fits my needs very well but when I tried it my server's CPU ended up pinned at 70-100% and backups weren't always successful. This is the only plugin that I know of that is a single-purpose backup plugin that easily let's you specify directories and how long to keep files around.

    I hope work on this plugin continues, it s a very good plugin if only it was continued on development. Its the only plugin i can fidn that can half reliably backup my world data folder without taking 30 minutes to copy all the files across.

    Sir Ducksworth

    Will you implement multiworld support plz? Because at the moment my nether world is not backing up.

    @OP, who never seems to respond here

    Just a heads up there is an event that this and some other plugins call that is causing issues with worldedit and other possible plugins to display double command use issues.

    This event has been found to be the issue and sk89q and some of the bukkit staff are going to remove it you or someone else may need to take over this plugin and change comply with the changes.

    CB 358 Introduced

    Lowered the priority of the old command handler event. A number of plugins were using this event incorrectly. A new event, the command preprocesser event, has replaced the previous function of the original command event.

    [WARNING] Using the stupidly long constructor com.mysticx.bukkit.backupplugin.BackupPlugin(PluginLoader, Server, PluginDescriptionFile, File, File, ClassLoader) is no longer recommended. Go nag the plugin author of BackupPlugin to remove it! (Nothing is broken, we just like to keep code clean.)

    please update to CB rev 358+
  7. when the console runs a mapping command, it says : mapping pass 1 of 2 and then just sits there and never finishes the map... any idea why this is?

    Or do a fork like me : https://github.com/OniTux/BackupPlugin :p
    For the moment, I do nothing (just get sources from the jar, add a support for maven and put on github)
    I will do :
    • Fix commands for recent version of CraftBukkit
    • Replace support for GroupUsers Plugin to Permissions Plugins
    • Try to add a multi world support
    • Clean code
    If you think I forget something, say this [​IMG]

    Why are you using a stupidly long constructor!? WHY!!!!?!!?!?!?!
  22. Offline


    I don't in my version (it's first thing I fix) and MysticX hasn't seen here since a month (long before the long constructor was "remove")

  24. _Oni_, thanks for updating this plugin, the [INFO] message is crazily long as it includes the constructor in the server message! >_> could you fix this?

    2011-02-25 17:13:48 [INFO] [BackupPlugin] (com.mysticx.bukkit.backupplugin.Backu

    Not for the moment, I could look at this weekend ;)
    This isn't error or warning, It's only message to say you use Permissions and BackupPlugin is enabled... :eek:

    he asked if u could make it shorter because it is the long with the constructor in it.
  27. Offline


    Oops, sorry :p
    I think have to read too fast :p
    I will make this message shorter ;)

    Does this plugin support multiple worlds. Like, being able to back up two seperate world folder (world, and netherworld)?
  29. Offline


    I think some of the recent bukkit updates have killed this plugin! >_<

    Not for the moment…
    Only one world are backuped…

    See previous pages, I post an updated version, the original author isn't come here since more a month.
