  1. Display backup restore progress bar and ETA for restore process

    Please enter the percentage of database restore in progress ... it is very frustrating to restore without knowing either the time left or the totality of kbytes transferred and remaining, with progress a bar
    Thank you

  2. 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.

  3. If target FTP folder is missing from FTP repository, Plesk Backup Manager shall create it

    When it comesto FTP Backup one can configure external FTP space and det a folder to be used.

    If that folder does not exist Plesk errors out this fact and the normal user is somehow lost.

    It would be a nice feature to have a checkbox to be checked that says "create folder structure if not existing".

  4. Include roundcube settings in backup

    it would be great when the content of roundcubemail, like contacts and identities can be included in the backup. It would make life easier in case of restoring a customer who uses only the webmail feature for mail.

  9. Exclude mailboxes for a specific domain from a backup

    Hello,

    While creating backup via Plesk control panel it would be great to have ability exclude email accounts of particular domain name, not all email accounts at once.
    This is due to the fact that when the mail accounts are very large, it significantly increases the time to create a backup, and causes it's freezing as a result.

    Thanks.

  12. Backup via SSHFS

    We have huge amounts of Backup Data (currently around 450gb per file). The whole process using FTP takes around ~ 13 hours to complete. Trying to restore something is a big bottleneck for us. Restoring from FTP is ****, and we searched for alternatives.

    We decided to give SSHFS a try by mounting /var/lib/psa/dumps to the remote Server and disconfigured the FTP Settings. The result is annoying. The Backup now takes around 2,5 hours, the Plesk Backend is really fast now and local space is not consumed anymore!

    So i suggest you to give SSHFS a try. It is like…

  14. Disaster Recovery Plesk _ Speed Up Backup Restoration procedure with possibility to open multiple process pleskrestore running

    Allow the pleskrestore command to be run under different example accounts

    pleskrestore --restore domains1.tar -level clients [<option_N> [<param>]]
    pleskrestore --restore domains2.tar -level clients [<option_N> [<param>]]
    pleskrestore --restore domains3.tar -level clients [<option_N> [<param>]]

    in order to obtain more simultaneous processes for the restore and therefore speeding up the recovery procedure of an entire server through plesk backups, in case of emergency.

    It is very important to allow you to run multiple simultaneous processes, also because today's CPUs and disks are very powerful and performing, if in case of emergency recovery, 8 restore commands are launched, the recovery process is speeded up…

  15. Backup Extension for Google Cloud / Amazon Glacier

    Plesk does currently only support Amazon S3. Amazon Glacier is cheaper than S3 and also good for backups. Also support for Google Cloud would be great since at the moment, Plesk does only support Google Drive which is no professional backup (example: https://github.com/plesk/ext-cloud-backup-example).

  18. Purge before restoring feature

    If I want to restore all files of a domain because the website has been hacked.... default restoration will simply overwrite existing file.

    In the cased of a hacked website, hackers can add suspicious files on the domains and those files won't be remove upon restoration.

    It will be great to have an option allowing us to opt for a purge before restoration so that we can completely replace the files, databases, etc. and not simply overwrite existing files.

  20. Have a status/progress bar when uploading restore files to a new installation (Migrator progess bar)

    At the moment I have no idea how far along my upload is, or if the Plesk Control Panel has times out or just stuck.

    It would be really helpful to have a progress bar or remaining data outstanding to upload on the screen
