Hi @vfx,

The world data, which also includes player inventories, maps and so on, is saved to a folder in the current working directory of the server.

The name of said folder depends on the level-name setting in server.properties, and defaults to world. Thus, you can start a new world and toggle between the saves by simply changing this setting.

Vanilla server commands related to saving/backups:

/save-all - forces the server to save. /save-off - disables saving. You should definitely execute this before making a backup of a running server to ensure that the server doesn’t save while you’re copying, which could result in a corrupt backup. /save-on - re-enables saving.
