  1. Give better information regarding backups created in higher level.

    When a customer in Plesk removes a subscription-level backup which is a part of full-server backup (or reseller's backup and some customer's backup in case of special rights), it is not displayed anymore in subscription's backup manager. However, it is not actually removed from the server. This confuses customers because they are not aware of what actually occupies so much disk space.

    Feature suggestion: make some note/banner in customer's backup manager to inform them that there are some backups which were created on a higher level.
    Or
    Prevent backup deletion if created at an higher level.

  3. backup

    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

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  11. SSH key support for ftp-remote backup storge

    To increase the security, SSH key support for the ftp remote backup storage would be a great feature. Also, please consider to add S3 compatible backups.

    Could you please be more specific? ssh and ftp are different protocols. What do you mean “SSH key support for the ftp remote backup”? And what do you mean “consider to add S3 compatible backups”? What is the desired usage scenario of this feature? What are the expected benefits of this feature?

  12. Improvement in Backup Manager

    The Backup Manager should be able to show the backups of all domains below the admin, including resellers.

  13. Add Rsync as a backup method for remote storage

    Would love to see Rsync support added. SFTP is slow.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  19. 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).

  20. 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.
