How to Configure Autosaving of Your Minecraft World | WTBBLUE

Minecraft servers have the ability to automatically save world data periodically. By default, Minecraft servers do this every 6000 ticks (5 minutes) and is ideal so that changes to your world are retained in case a restart or server crash occurs. However, automatic world saves can be enabled and disabled, and the frequency can be changed manually through various ways, some are listed below:

  • Multicraft Autosave feature
  • autosave setting (for servers running on Craftbukkit or Spigot)
  • auto-save-interval (for servers running on PaperMC)
  • Other autosave mods or plugins


The Multicraft panel has a feature to automatically save your server world on a regular basis. This feature is enabled by default and you will be able to see the autosave message/announcement in the chat.

It is also possible to change this interval. In order to do this, first follow the steps above to disable it. Then, you'll want to create a Scheduled Task for saving your world – this will allow you to customise when the /save command is run. We have another guide on how to manage Scheduled Tasks, which you can view here.

For Craftbukkit and Spigot servers, you can adjust how often your server's world is automatically saved. To do this, access your server's Bukkit Config and adjust the autosave value.

It is recommended to use the default value of 6000 which autosaves every 5 minutes or higher to ensure that this doesn't affect server performance.

If you are using PaperMC, your server autosaves based on Bukkit's settings. However, you may override this by adjusting the auto-save-interval value within the Paper Config (paper.yml) file.

Additionally, you may limit the number of chunks that are auto-saved in one tick by changing the value of the max-auto-save-chunks-per-tick value.

There are also mods and plugins that allow you to further customize world autosaving for your Minecraft server based on your preference.
