  1. 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.

  4. Define maximum number of saved backups in Service Plan

    As an administrator you currently can define the maximum number of full backups to store. This maximum number applies to all backups, stored locally or remote.

    This is a feature request for:a) defining a separate maximum for locally stored backups and a separate maximum for remotely stored backups. b) as well defining those maximum numbers in service plans.

    The option to define the maximum number of stored backups in a service plan would allow administrators to fulfill backup needs on a per customer basis. And even sell additional backups to customers who might have a need for much longer backup retention.

    Defining a separate maximum value for local and…

  6. Ability to set a Subscription or Domain Backup Default

    I'd love the ability to set a subscription such that a Scheduled Backup configuration is enabled by default? E.g. "backup all files, daily, store 1 day"?

    Often times I realized after the fact that a domain backup was not turned on. The "scheduled backup list" extension is nice, but I'm looking more for a default option.

    Thank you for your idea! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular. However, the normal procedure for integration of third-party platforms with Plesk are extensions. These should be developed by the vendors who want to integrate their product with Plesk. Many other storage platforms already have developed extensions for Plesk, so Mega could do the same using the free API toolkit: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/extensions-guide/plesk-extensions-basics/how-to-create-and-install-extensions.76094/

    Hi Pugmarks Techs,

    thank you for your feature suggestion. I assume you are using the Slack extension of Plesk and your suggestion is that Plesk shall add backup manager events  such as "backup completed without errors", "backup completed with some errors" and similar to the event handler list so that the Slack extension can react to them.

    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.

  10. 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.

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

  15. 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.

  16. 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:

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
