Snapshots do not function in shared hosting environments

      The latest snapshots do not work properly in a shared hosting environment.

      Utilizing Multicraft, each server has its own user and its own folder stored in <multicraft dir>/servers/server<id>, and that user does not have access to the overall `/servers` directory.

      As it stands the snapshot attempts to create a folder outside of the server's running directory (./../backups), so that would be in <multicraft dir>/servers prompting an AccessDeniedException and preventing the server from starting.

      To fix this issue, either allow setting a custom backup directory via command line, or create the backups folder in the server's running directory.
