    • Delete temp. backup files!

      Please clean up temp. backup files from the dumps folder.
      Failed backups (to FTP) remain in the dumps folder filling up the storage space.

      This should not have to happen: please remove these files!

      I am running a workaround cronjob script to delete them every day:

      #!/bin/sh backup_dumps_delete#
      # Delete backup more than 90 days old.
      #
      backupDir="/var/lib/psa/dumps"
      #
      daysToKeep=0

      echo "Checking for files older than $daysToKeep days in $backupDir"
      listOfFiles=`find $backupDir -mtime +$daysToKeep`
      if [ ! -z $listOfFiles ]
      then
      echo "Found [$listOfFiles]"
      else
      echo "None found."
      fi
      for toDelete in $listOfFiles
      do
      echo "Deleting $toDelete"
      rm -rf $toDelete …

        • 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…

            • 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…

              • 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

                • 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…

                  • 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.

                    • 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…

                      • 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...

                        • 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?

                              • Return backup file name features to 12.5

                                I know that the backup feature was rewritten in 12.5, but it is very difficult to easily identify various server and individual site backups on a remote FTP drive now that all you see displayed in the UI is the date / time. The backup features of 12.0 that included adding a prefix to the file name and also being able to actually see the file name is sorely missed.

                                    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

                                      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.

                                        • Manage folder for download dump backup

                                          Actually, you can't manage folder destination when you download a backup from plesk interface

                                          Add an option in plesk interface to define the folder path for :

                                          Full backups -> /usr/local/psa/PMM/tmp
                                          Domains backups -> /usr/local/psa/tmp

                                          However when you download backup files from the Plesk Control Panel, they are copied to a temporary location as a temporary file (these parameters are not manageable) and if you have small partition genrally /dev/md1 not enought than 18 Go, you can block all plesk server
