backup only database
backup only database daily. not with all file..
for me my DB only 200mb and site 5GO...
In Plesk Obsidian 18.0.54, published July 18th, 2023, Plesk has added the ability to back up databases separately from other website content by splitting the “User files and databases” checkbox into separate “Databases” and “User files” checkboxes in Backup Manager.
Please let us know your thoughts and ideas on further improvements on this new feature.

There must be an option to take and restore database /databases backup separately.

I have a database approx 2.5 GB and lots of pictures (approx 50GB). I would like a daily/weekly database backupo, but do not need all user files. Copying the user files would eat all my disk space on a VPS plan... This is currently only possible through a manual exercise?

Add the ability to create a scheduled backup for a certain database

This is an absolute necessity. We must have a way to schedule a single database backup. Alternatively, make it an option in 'Scheduled Tasks'.
Also, please see here, which had 138 votes for this feature: https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/4341835-database-backup-scheduled-and-on-demand
I believe the requested feature was to give Plesk users the choice to backup only the database; the fact that Plesk will incrementally backup only the database if no other files has changed does not resolve the feature request, in my opinion.
automysqlbackup only works if you have root access?
We need a way to choose only database backups from within Plesk.
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 and it is in the Onyx backup pool we do else we restore from snap and then import this restore via onyx database import
The request is to allow admin to set the path of the backup to be a folder in the domain webspace so a copy of the db is in the client webspace and onyx db import can be use to restore
Set options to backup the database only on a rotation cycle and time of day to start the backup
If possible for site files also with an feature where client can restore the site within the past 7 days say there after the snaps will be used

You can try to use "automysqlbackup" for this. It is perfect and you can have DB back to months.
In database Tab add new feature. Scheduled mysql daily and export to private folder.
Is is extra backup, not replace the original BackUp system of all data.
Dear sir add new option in control panel scheduled tasks in auto backup in zip file each set database backup.
