Close and re open the window.

If you mean reset the map? Delete server_level.dat and start the server again, this will delete the entire map and generate a new one.

If you plan to use a backup, you can't unless you have a server software

ditto

OBTW If you have done a server backup by copying the server_level.dat to another place just shut down the server and put it back

If you are using plain Official Minecraft Server, you may be out of luck.  It has no backup system.  Otherwise, delete server_level and then start the server.
Hey, try Red Eclipse. It's a free online shooter. It's shweet.

You can use cMss (a server wrapper script) with the official server to add backups.

its in the world folder.

On multiplayer it is in the world folder in the server folder. Unless you have given you world a nae in which case it is in that named folder

I deleted my server software and 'world' folder in the server folder then just downloaded the server software again. Well of course this is to generate a new map, not reset a griefed map. If you want to reset a griefed map, back it up regularly before you let anyone on the server, or if you make a screw up whilst building!  :D

Yeah, just remove the entire world folder possibly excluding player.dat.


But do it while the server is offline, I am not entirely sure but if you do it while online it might cause problems.



I would suggest, in the future, getting some way of stopping grievers. Either, by regular backups or by mods like for example Big Brother on Bukkit.
