Ubuntu 16.04 dedicated server tarball backup creation command

I recently purchased a subscription for a dedicated server using ubuntu 16.04. It is a fresh install of ubuntu 16.04 with no added programs. I am new to linux and want to backup the entire server as it is now so that if I make any mistake while using it and I can just rollback the server to the fresh install and start from the beginning again.

I understand that the best way to do this i with a "tarball" backup. I need the command to create the tarball and the command to execute it so the server is returned to its original state before I made any changes.
