    Hey, until a plugin is released, i recommend using cron.
    Here is a script that i run hourly with cron for my server

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    cd /home/username/World_Backups
    mkdir `date +"%Y_%m_%d"`
    cd /home/username/World_Backups/`date +"%Y_%m_%d"`
    tar -cf World1_`date +"%Y_%m_%d__%H_%M"`.tar /home/username/path_to/Minecraft_Server/bin/World1
    gzip World1_`date +"%Y_%m_%d__%H_%M"`.tar

    How would that work? Whenever I try to tar the world I get errored due to changes? (map saving stuff)

    Works for me :p
    My auto-save (in server.properties) is set to 15 minutes btw.
