My kids and I are trying to determine the issue with Minecraft server not saving worlds on reboot.
If we log off and log back in, any progress is still present, but if I reboot the machine, the world is reset.
It seems like this might be a permissions issue as I have encountered a few with setting up the MC server, but I don't have enough MC experience to know if this is expected behavior.
Do I need to set up some type of tear-down script to save progress or is there a way to elegantly shutdown the MC server before the machine powers off?
MC 1.9.4. There is a user
minecraft and a
systemd service to start the server on boot that I set up based on a tutorial. Other than that, it's more or less out of the box.
