  1. Add an option to Archive sites

    Would be great to be able to archive sites.

    1 - Create a backup of files and database in the default (cloud) backup storage.

    2 - Remove files and database from the hosting.

    3 - Change the site status to Archived but keep on the site list.

    4 - Allow to easily restore from the cloud backup when needed.

  4. Include Plesk backup download in Action Log

    Currently, when downloading a Plesk backup via Plesk, this action is not tracked by Plesk Action log.

  6. Sending a WOL magic packet before backup via FTP

    Hello !
    My Plesk scheduled backups are send by FTP to a computer that might be in sleeping mode. I would appreciate the possibility of sending a WOL magic packet before the transfer.

  7. An option to limit a number of full backups via CLI

    It'd be great to have an option to limit the number of full backups in directory via cli, for example:
    plesk bin pleskbackup ... -max_backups=2

  8. Multiple scheduled Backups

    It would be useful to have the ability to make scheduled backups in more than just one FTP server, so that you have multiple backups.

    For example, with the Strasbourg fire, I lost two VPSs and the server where I had backups of them.

    By having a backup on an additional server, I would have limited the damage.

  9. Limit number of local backups when option 'Both server storage and FTP(S) storage' is used

    Add more customization to the Backup Manager > Schedule > Both server storage and FTP(S) storage, e.g.:
    Create a limited number of backups on server storage (option to indicate the number of the backup specifically for local storage), in order to save disk space

    This is a valid request, so we'll look into it. There is no ETA at the moment, but we would really appreciate you voting for this request so that we can accurately assess its popularity relative to other features.

    Thanks in advance!

    IG


    I have merged the request by creoline into this existing one. Actually, adding a parameter like --single-transaction requires careful consideration of many side effects that this can have. It is explained well in https://stackoverflow.com/questions/41683158/mysqldump-single-transaction-option and comments. But like IG I also think it is a valid request.


    We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.

    Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

  11. Generate Backup Hash to Verify on Download

    Its a good idea once a backup is generated to expose a hash of it, so if we download it to another media server we have a easy way to check if the backup transfer was successful.

  12. Add a detailed status message for restoring specific domains via Backup Manager

    Restoring a backup in Tools & Settings > Backup Manager always results in a generic message:

    Restoration of the backup <timestamp> completed

    But this message remains the same both after restoring a full server backup or just some specific domains, which can be confusing.

    If only specific domains have been restored, please add a separate message listing these domains.

  13. Backup retention period options

    It'll be useful to have the ability to configure the retention period of the backup. Right now it's only possible to set the "Maximum number of full backup files to store (including both scheduled and manual backups)".

    While it'll be useful to set something like "Keep backup for "x" weeks", to have more flexibility, when it gets to the backup storage.

  14. Allow resellers to use remote FTP backup, but prevent them from changing it's settings

    To let resellers use the ftp archive without letting them change the FTP remote settings could give Administrators more control over backups.

  15. Limit rate of backup

    Full weekly backup for all domains create a huge I/O throughput on our SAN that stress too much our infrastructure until backup ends. It would great if we can tune data through a pipe like "pv" command do.

    I.e.
    This is an example of backup that stress the SAN:
    mysqldump -A -q --single-transaction=TRUE -u $MUSER -p$MPASS | gzip > $_file

    This instead is and example that do not stress the SAN:
    mysqldump -A -q --single-transaction=TRUE -u $MUSER -p$MPASS | gzip | pv -L 512k > $_file

    in the last command we set the maximum rate limit of 512k. Of course…

  16. Implement a disk space check for "plesk sbin pmm-ras" utility

    Exporting a backup via "pmm-ras" utility may bring down the server because it ran out of disk space during the procedure:

    plesk sbin pmm-ras --export-dump-as-file --dump-specification=backupinfo<timestamp>.xml --dump-file-specification=/root/backup.tar

    Please improve the "pmm-ras" utility to check for free disk space before starting the operation to avoid these scenarios

  18. Clear failed backup/restore notifications at once in UI

    There are so many notifications in backup manager regarding failed backups and clearing them 'close this message' is so slow. It would be nice to have a way to clear them all at once

  19. Add incremental backups for Plesk extensions

    Currently, Plesk backup manager creates incremental parts only for the web and mail content. And Plesk extensions backup always contain full data even if there were no changes. It is required to add incremental backups for Plesk extensions

  20. Exclude lscache folders from backups [LiteSpeed Extension]

    If plesk is running with LiteSpeed extension all subscriptions containing a lscache folder which can't be included in backup due to executable permissions. This folder should be excluded from all backups globally (Server Backup & Subscription Backups)
