backupcommand allows the creation of
.tar.gzarchives of a game server. This can be used to transfer a game server to another Linux server, to backup the game server before a risky change, to save the current state of the game server.
maxbackups. If the number of backups exceeds this value, the oldest backup will be removed after a successful backup.
maxbackupdays. Any backups older than X days will be removed after a successful backup.
stoponbackup. If the server is running it will be stopped while the backup is running and started again once complete. This is useful to prevent any file changes during compression that could result in a corrupt or failed backup.
