Multiple backup rules or more options
At this moment, you can set only 1 rule to make backups (daily, weekly, or monthly). My idea is to make multiple backup rules (ex. which daily backups should be deleted) or simply make more backup options.
I want to make daily backup and delete every older than 2 days, except one day of the week and one day of the month.
Make [daily/weekly/monthly] backup and keep only:
[n] daily backups (enabled only for daily backups)
[n] weekly backups (enabled for daily and weekly backups)
[n] monthly backups (enabled for daily, weekly and monthly backups)
So, if someone picks daily backups from 2 days, but also wants a 1 monthly backup, the script makes daily backups and deletes every backup older than 2 days except 1 monthly backup. This way it doesn't make double work - backup for daily backups and backup for monthly backups.
Hi all, Thanks for your input, really appreciate this! As you know, in Plesk Onyx 17.8 we made a significant improvement that allows you to use several cloud storages or even SFTP for remote backups. In Plesk Onyx 17.9 we will continue to improve Plesk Backup Manager in general and Flexible Backup Scheduler Manager in particular.
Based on the initial description and comments I can highlight 3 scenarios in the scope of this request:
#1. Keep Daily & Weekly & Monthly backups at the same time: (Example: 2 weeks of daily backups + weekly backups by each Monday)
#2. Backup to different storages (like daily to FTP and monthly to Google Drive)
#3. Multiple Storages of the same type (like 2 different FTP servers)

Make per domain backups! No need to deal with a 300GB file if one client makes a mistake. But don't force me to activate the backups individually and configure individual backup space for each customer, how is that helping?

For our sanity, please enable the Plesk Migrator to also transfer the subscription Backup settings when migrated to a new server.
Since System-Dist-Upgrades are not advisable on production server, once in a while all customers/subscriptions etc. have to be migrated to a new node. But the backup settings are not transfered. Guess what, customers don't pay for you to add their backups settings back.
This shouldn't be to hard, since this is all in the database already.

Please add this options to Plesk.
+ 1 for me.
Thanks in advance for the support.
Is that possible backup files and databases separate? For users or domains, i think only files or only databases choices should be.
how is it going with the feature?
plesk 17.9 is out but without the new stuffs ..
It would be great if it will be possible to set the default backup configuration for new subscriptions from Plesk or possibility of backup configuration for subscription from SSH
Thomas Papamichail commented
permissions to backup/restore or only restore.
It would REALLY help if we had the option to have the scheduled backup make a backup per subscription rather than in one file. If there's a major issue and I need to access files in the full backup, I need to download and join 235GB worth of files, which takes hours.
If we could do it per account, I could just download the one I needed.

Please allow different settings for database and file backups. For example I may want to do database backups twice a day and keep them for just 15 days, but I want to keep file backups (for ex.: invoices, user uploads) for years.
How about Hourly backups, could you please add this in the incoming improvement.
- its no fun to get the 8 TB File just to restore 1 Domain or Database.
- i guess you will also have problems if your server harddrives are more then 50% full (since you can´t download the backup)
i would really love if there is an option that all (sub)domains are split + databases as an extra file.
if its a matter of knowing which files counts towards which backup, you could just create a folder per backup(job) and put the split archives inside.
Backup is sooo important, please bring some improvements. i.e. Continuous Data Protection (CDP) Features
Agreed with Martin's commented.
DirectAdmin as its price cheaper than any CP can do this. But Plesk not?
I would also recommend to have a option to Backup the FTP AND the DB in the same .zip or at once.
It should be possible to set a pattern for the Name.
For me it would be:
"[Name of Subscription] [Date].zip"
Like mentioned in the OP a intervall in which the subscription gets Backuped would be nice.
or create 2 backups on 2 external FTPs
Yes good idea.
possibility to create differents tasks.
for example I backup the full config with datas on a FTP server
and only the config on a google drive

You really should see it urgently. In cPanel we have for example JetBackup that for less than 5 dollars offers us a complete interface with several integrations. Currently there is only the Plesk backup system that is currently insufficient.
Please bring Acronis backup module for Plesk to the masses!
