My friend and I are playing our first game on my server. I wanted to know how to save our work so that it is not lost when I turn off my computer. Thank you!

You make regular backup of the world folder your server is playing on

To make a backup,
1. find the world folder (default is world1)
2. Copy it and paste it somewhere you think you're gonna remember where it is.

It's been a while. Take a seat.

Use "stop" when you want to stop the server, it will save the world and prevent the world from getting corrupted.

It's like turn off power vs. switch of properly. The first is faster but damages your computer.
I'm not officially on these forums anymore, as I've quit to the new forums. If you see me online here, it's because I'm inviting people.

No you can't join, stop asking.

I just type:


in the server console, this forces a save as though save&exiting from SSP.
