  1. Multiple backup rules or more options

    At this moment, you can set only 1 rule to make backups (daily, weekly, or monthly). My idea is to make multiple backup rules (ex. which daily backups should be deleted) or simply make more backup options.

    Ex:
    I want to make daily backup and delete every older than 2 days, except one day of the week and one day of the month.

    ex interface:
    Make [daily/weekly/monthly] backup and keep only:
    [n] daily backups (enabled only for daily backups)
    [n] weekly backups (enabled for daily and weekly backups)
    [n] monthly backups (enabled for daily, weekly and monthly backups)

    So, if…

    Hi all, Thanks for your input, really appreciate this! As you know, in Plesk Onyx 17.8 we made a significant improvement that allows you to use several cloud storages or even SFTP for remote backups. In Plesk Onyx 17.9 we will continue to improve Plesk Backup Manager in general and Flexible Backup Scheduler Manager in particular.

    Based on the initial description and comments I can highlight 3 scenarios in the scope of this request:

    #1. Keep Daily & Weekly & Monthly backups at the same time: (Example: 2 weeks of daily backups + weekly backups by each Monday)

    #2. Backup to different storages (like daily to FTP and monthly to Google Drive)

    #3. Multiple Storages of the same type (like 2 different FTP servers)

    ID in our Issue Tracker: PPM-1701
    -DL

  2. Backup and restoration

    Hi, To restore a single file from FTP repository, it required whole full to download and then restore required data. Which consumes lot of time. Please try to work this backup/restore operation like other backup application where we can select required data and it get easily download without time consuming.

    Also the backup tab should give option like dayswise full, incremental backup. Start and stop backup schedule, etc...

  4. Limit amount of backups per customer

    Hey guys,

    I am sure that I speak for hundreds of users when I say that having a limit on backups per customers and or subscriptions should be an important and available option. The option to also limit backups based on the customers subscription storage size will be even better. Otherwise, customers who overuse the backup option will dramatically increase storage space on the server without realization of the administrator. It wouldn't be ideal for an administrator to enter the dumps folder to delete random customer backups. Really hope you guys can resolve this and add this feature as soon…

  5. Trash folder in the server (please)

    When you eliminate some file or folder for mistake a folder of recycling does not exist to be able to restore it, only with the backup but not always it has been done

  6. add backup password protection to Backup Manager Backups (NO..it doesn't have it at the mo)

    This may also be a security issue.
    Currently there are no special protection of user content in the backup. Plesk protects only its sensitive data, web content archived without any encryption.

    If some gains ADMIN access to a wordpress/drupal/other web applications install parts of the Plesk container file system, cron jobs, etc will be compromised and would undoubtably increase exponentially the chances of the system to be exploited with virus, rootkits, malware “indirectly” affecting Plesk. (as an analogy no point to build a metal wall if the door is still glass)

    So, in other words ... if a wordpress installation…

  7. Support incremental backup for mail content

    Nowadays, many users are using IMAP, maybe because is the default setting in many popular email clients (Mozilla Thunderbird, and I remember Mail on Windows 8.1 didn't support POP3 at all).

    Mail content usually grow but previously stored messages doesn't change often. In Maildir format, used by Plesk, qmail and Postfix, when an user got new mails, new files with unique name are added on disk, and only some files are changed (basically, only courier-imap and dovecot caches and indexes, perhaps easy to rebuild from scratch).

    So, please, support incremental backup for mail content too

  8. Backblaze B2 Backups

    Hello,

    Due to the nice facility offred by having a multiple bucket system, nothing would be easier and more secure than doing a backblaze B2 Backup. Also because of the competitive pricing.

  9. backup local and remote at once

    I've seen many options for backups, but it would be a great addition if we could use the backup schedule to make a backup local AND somewhere remote.

    Now i can schedule backups either only local or only remote and since i cannot make multiple schedules for remote backups and local backups i have to make local backups with the scheduler and do things by hand to get another backup in my personal FTP storage.

    I prefer to have backups local, for quick restore availability and remote for when sh*t hits the fan.

    So, i'd like to see an option…

  10. Interface that show progress process before download

    Many customers can not wait and press the download button too often. That generates to many big TEMP files in the /tmp folder.

  12. Backup single account

    It would be great to have a single interface to manage backups of individual accounts (single-domain or single user).
    I would like to manage a single server backup ftp and let me choose which accounts to backup.

    Obviously the backup file must be "single" for each account and not a single file for the entire server. If you want to make the restore of a single account, I have to use a single backup file.

    Currently I have a script that through bash (or cygwin for windows) backs up the single account by bees and upload via ftp on external…

  14. Start the backup only if your server has the specified amount of free disk space (in megabytes) *

    why MB?
    why is the input field so small?
    why only 5 digits?

    we need GB!!! or?

  16. mail after successful backup

    Currently you get after completing a backup, only one mail, if errors occur. For me it would be helpful to have the option to receive an e-mail even when successful backup.

  17. Exclude domains from backup in UI

    Add an option to exclude domains / clients / resellers from a backup to the Plesk user interface.

    Currently, it is possible only via command line:

  19. Backup Manager: Multiple FTP Storages

  20. Backup / Restore for Service Plans

    Hi there,
    it would be very nice to implement the possibility to backup / restore the service plans. (export & import)
    We have many servers and it is a lot of work and it takes long time always to create the service plans again, and again...

    Or is there already such a feature and we didn´t find it `til now?

    Regards,
    Thomas Kälber
