  1. Add the possibility to back up/include selected files and folders in the Backups

    Currently, it's possible to exclude some files/folders from backup creation: https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000773605

    But this feature should be improved because in some cases excluding is not a valid solution.

    Let's say that there are multiple files and folders, as you can imagine, the list of exclusion would be too long and it would require a lot of time to create it. Moreover, the list will need to be updated each time there are new folders on the webspace.

    Due to these reasons, an improvement should be provided to this feature, the customer should be able to create a backup including only the…

  2. FTP storage setting for backups for multiple subscriptions.

    When added the FTP server storage parameter in the settings of the Plesk panel (tools&settings - Backup Manager - FTP Storage Settings) for the backup.
    Automatically distribute this FTP repository to all subscriptions as a place for backup by default.

  3. Off site backup on the fly. Currently offsite backup needs half the disc to be empty to work

    Currently the Plesk backup routine to FTP off-site or Dropbox is clumsy in the it makes a tar file (not compressed as far as I can see) on the server BEFORE sending it to the remote storage server. So to back up 20gb you need at another 20gb free on the original server to be backed up. The programme should be able to tar compress send with a small cache on the fly. I cannot use the PLESK back-up as I am 60% full on the VPS

  5. Restore Backup to alternative domain

    When restoring a Backup of the domain it would be beneficial if you could restore it to a different domain.
    There sometimes is the case that data has to be extracted from an old backup, but the current domain state can't be overwritten.

  7. Plesk Backup Manager - Local Storage used before transfer to FTP Server

    I would like to suggest that it would be great if it's possible to split backups into multiple parts during the backup process.

    I know the option -s or --split but actually, it's just split the backup in the location into multiple parts but during the backup process the local storage is still in use. If you got a Server with 200GB space and 150 GB are used I can't Backup the server because the command "Plesk bin pleskbackup server --output-file=ftp://user:pass@destination/backup_file" would create one file with round 120 GB in local storage.

    I would suggest an option that…

  10. Add option to include backups in remote storage into Disk usage statistics

    Add option to include backups in remote storage (such as FTP/S3) into Disk usage statistics. For example, it is possible to include backups that were created by administrator and it would be useful to add option to exclude/include backups in remote storage into statistics

  11. Possibility to change Plesk backup file names

    It would be great if backup names included the Server Name in the backup file name, so instead of the file name being: backup21092403142109300314.tar it is identifiable as: backupexampleserver21092403142109300314.tar.

    For ie: an INI variable that can be set or some other option to change this behaviour

    The reason for this change is that long term storage and search tools only allow file archival retrieval by searching for a file name part or a date range. So restoring a backup for a specific server becomes very challenging when the backup files for all the servers…

  14. don't write in the backup repository during plesk updates

    I mounted a remote server via sshfs and set it as the plesk backup repository, so I can backup my domains through sftp (with a keyfile).

    But now, whenever I try to upgrade my plesk installation, plesk writes files to my backup repository (i.e. mysql backup before a mysql upgrade) and immediately tries to change the owner of the file, which fails because chown it is not supported on mounted directories.

    The best solution would be to provide the option to set a different path for automated backups.

  16. Change password type in Backup Settings via CLI

    Currently, it is only possible to change this setting via Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Settings > Backup Security Settings > Password type

  18. Add Incremental backups support for Presence Builder

    Currently, Presence Builder attachments (for example, images that have been added via Slider module to a domain) ends up in every incremental Plesk backup. Such attachments should not be in incremental backups as they are not being changed, modified, etc before the incremental backup starts.
    I suggest adding such a feature for incremental backups support for such Presence Builder files.

  19. Allow users to add (dynamic) prefix (e.g. date) to backup filename

    Applies to: I'm currently using a paid Dropbox account as an offsite backup, but this is relevant for all (offsite) backups.

    What happens: When running full server backups, Plesk currently creates a file called server.domain.tld.tar.

    The problem: When scheduling (daily/weekly/monthly) full server backups, the new backup file will have the exact same name as the previous backup file.

    The result: When selecting e.g. the 12 latest backups to be saved, Plesk backup manager will display these backups as individual entries, but in reality when using a service like Dropbox to create automated off-site backups, the next backup overwrites the previous…
