  3. Backup by dated folders

    As I have a setup for backing up to offsite storage, it would be great to have a backup folder structure that uses dated folders so when it comes to backing up using rsync,it will be easy to see which folders can be copied/deleted and move them

  4. Backup Options

    I can see lots of backup function request and here is some background.
    Onyx backup is file base and applicable. However for client with snapshot backup - due to time to complete backup and backup sizes - snapshot will be used vs Onyx backup.

    However with snaps restoring databases is a paint and hence we will disable the value option of Onyx backup and use a custom task to daily backup the database in a rotation of x days -- so

    a) if you need to restore file we do from the snap
    b) if we need to restore db…

  5. Ability to exclude web access logs file from schedule backup setting

    The incremental backup of plesk works great except for only one thing: log file.

    I find that on high traffic site, the backup will always backup ALL log file even if this is an incremental backup. This create a very large backup file even the site hasn't been changed at all.

    The ability to exclude log from "scheduled backup" will help incremental backup run much faster and save more space.

    There's already an option for "MANUAL" server backup. But not for scheduled / customer / reseller backup. Please enable this option for them too.

  8. Upload backups to Dropbox with timestamps

  10. Do not include the huge Plesk mobile log file in server backup

    Since I installed the "Plesk mobile" extension, my daily server backup via Plesk (only configuration and e-mails) is much larger than before and gets larger every day! There is a log file called "MobileConnector.log" in that backup and this file currently is 150 MB in size (it increases by about 50 MB per month).

    I would like to have an option to exclude this file. As it's part of an extension, this log file cannot be excluded via the checkbox "Exclude logfiles"! This option is not even visible, because I do not backup user files.

  11. Allow direct access to Backup Manager from Files tab.

    It's a nuisance having to go back to the main page to do a backup after uploading new or revised files.

  12. Add the possibility to check the content of a backup

    Add the possibility to check the content of a backup so it can be reviewed and identify if the backup contains the needed files / information such as by date, name, etc.

  14. Adding feasibility of downloading backup files via download management applications

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to download backup files via applications such as internet download manager now, and this can be the reason of some problems for users (Failing downloads and repeating them) and hosts (ٌWasting bandwidth and other resources of servers).

  16. Add option to Resellers can to restore data from Administrator's full backup on FTP

    In Plesk reseller can restore data from a full backup created by Plesk administrator. Currently, the backup created to FTP storage can be restored only by its creator.

    Add option to Resellers to restore data from the Administrator's full backup stored on FTP.

  18. Separate rotation for backups hosted in clouds

    When on Plesk server there is not much space, and on clouds (like Amazon S3), there is a lot - the separate rotation for backups would be useful: to set on Plesk to rotate frequently, and in the cloud - far more rarely.

  19. Plesk should recognize the failure of backup at FTP Storage as an emailable error.

    In Scheduled Backup settings, you can tick; "if errors occur during the execution of this backup tasks send a notification email to...". However, if the backup is set up to go to FTP Storage and the FTP site can't be reached, the backup is done to the Server Storage and no error email is sent. This is a problem because if a few days of backups intended for FTP Storage fail and go to Server Storage, contracted server space could be exceeded causing Plesk to suspend / disable the site.

    Plesk should complete the backup to the Server Storage, but…
