  2. Plesk Backup & Restore IV - protocol functionality

    Plesk Backup & Restore IV

    I personally think it's better to save all backup logs in a MariaDB / mySQL database table so that I can search for problems there later. So searchable logs with timestamps and users per domain / all domains, sometimes also by topic such as "email" / "database" / "files" / "configuration"

  3. Plesk Backup & Restore III - Wrong Option

    The output during import in any combination whether "database only", "files only", "configuration only" is really insufficient, no information is passed on, e.g. the individual steps mentioned above, when importing a "domain" the domains all run as above, but for which task and how far the individual task is completely missing. Perhaps the old progress bar should be kept and another one should be shown where the individual steps are carried out, the more details the better.

    At the end after the import, unfortunately you can only see the "date and time" and not what was imported at all. I'm…

  4. Plesk Backup & Restore Part II

    Plesk Backup & Restore

    In my opinion, it makes no sense to import a backup where the software only "Only the configuration of the selected objects" means that if you click the wrong button, the database data can no longer be imported.

    The databases have to be deleted manually in order to then select the correct setting "Configuration and contents of the selected objects". There is no setting to "Overwrite configuration and contents".

  5. Please Provide Better Notification Capabilities

    Plesk needs a full featured notification solution, so users can customize what notifications they want to see, from whatever service is running on Plesk. For example the Plesk backups only allow for notification if the backup fails. Why not have a notification for either situation, success or failure. This is what I am referring to when I say the notifications need to be more robust.

  6. Backup and restorations should be noted in Plesk's Action log

    As the title says, in order to better understand what have happened in Plesk, Backups and restorations should also leave a note in the Action log for Admin to understand what has been done in Plesk.

  7. Add a way to automatically restart scheduled backups in case they fail

    In case a scheduled backup fails, users have to wait until the next execution date. Please add a customizable timeframe for restarting a scheduled backup ahead of time in case the current execution has failed

  9. Database views should be saved and restored correctly

    Backup and restore does not work correctly when database contain views.

  10. Add Storage Location to DB Copy Functionality

    Currently the db copy functionality only allows for a default location that is where the db server is located. I would ask that you provide the ability to add a second predetermined location that is just a storage location and not associated with the db server. This allows us to keep the db server storage clean.

  14. Manual Lock for Preservation of Specific Backups in Plesk Backup Manager

    Introduce a functionality in Plesk Backup Manager that allows users to manually 'lock' specific backups, preventing their automatic deletion during the backup rotation process. This feature would enable administrators to preserve critical backups indefinitely, without the need to move files externally or re-upload them, thereby ensuring essential backups remain accessible and protected within the Plesk ecosystem.

  15. Provide option to include the warnings on a backup task, alongside errors

    there is the option "If errors occur during the execution of this backup task, send a notification email to..." but the notification is sent only when the backup is not successful at all. It does not include warnings.

  16. Add ability to Backup from the Subscriptions view

    Add ability to Backup select subscriptions in subscriptions view. Basically instead of doing a full server Backup, I'd like to select a number of subscriptions via the checkbox and then click Backup to create a Backup of only those Subscriptions. This will allow me to archive a number of subscriptions so I can delete them.

  17. S3 Storage with enabled Object Lock

    AWS S3 Storage offers the Object Lock feature, which ensures that a file cannot be deleted within a certain time frame. This is ideal for protecting your Plesk backups from accidental manipulation or attackers.

    However, to use this feature, the PUT request must include the checksum of the uploaded backup file. If this header is omitted, the following error message appears:

    Transport error: Extension transport: ext://s3-backup/server/: Content-MD5 OR x-amz-checksum- HTTP header is required for Put Part requests with Object Lock parameters

    Adding one of the headers described at https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/userguide/checking-object-integrity.html would solve this problem.

  18. exclude large files from backup

    Some customers store large videos for their website,
    some of them just zip an entire website for manual backup or download, and keep it in the server storage.
    some have wordpress backup plugins that will generate >500Mb files with weird extension.
    others just can't understand that a PNG file >50Mb is not good for your website.

    for the backup/restore functionality,
    I Suggest adding the ability to exclude large files.
    or even combine large files for specific extension (allow to backup any size of MPG, but exclude ZIP files >20Mb)

    currently, it is possible to exclude by extensions, but PNG and…

    Thank you for your idea! 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. 

    A workaround for some cases could be to place large files in separate directories and then to exclude these directories from the backup. Nevertheless we get the idea of this request to filter them from all directories by size.,

    -- PD

  19. Verify backups using checksum instead of partial file download

    FTP backups are verified using the download of part of the file, however some hosts do not support partial file download. It would be good to allow verification using some other method such as fle checksum.
