Backup Types

Here we will learn how to restore a backup of your Nitrado.net game server. Our servers will automatically create a backup for your game. There are three different types of backups, below I will list these backups.

Backup Type Description
Game Internal backups Game internal backups are made throughout the day. These backups simply contain the savegame. Making it easy to roll your save game back a few hours rather than a whole day.
Server Backups Server backups are daily incremental backups of your server made once per day. These backups will restore the entire server back to a specific point.
Database Backups These backups are self titled. They are simply backup the database for your server. (Useful for games like Arma and CS:GO)

    • Use the "Game internal" backups to simply roll your savegame back to before you made the changes.

    • First use the "Game internal" backups to simply roll your savegame back to before your restart.
  • Something happened on the server and I want to go a couple days back.
    • Use the "Server Backups" to fully restore your server to a specific date.
  • My characters are here but my world is gone!
    • Use the "Game internal" backups to restore your world save back to the time you last played.
