  4. add bzip2/xz compression support for backups

    Would be nice to have the option to choose other compression formats for backups, especially bzip2 or xz. To reduce compression time, parallel implementations can be used (pbzip2 and pxz). Additionally there should be an option to set compression level (1-9).

  7. Encrypt backups before upload (for example to GDrive)

    There is no option to encrypt backups. I do not trust Google or any other cloud service. Yet I could use the (otherwise completely useless) storage to put my backups there.

    So please include a proper and secure encryption. Thanks!

    Edit:
    It could be as easy as running gpg as a last step before uploading:

    Encrypting (simple tar example):
    tar -czf - [FOLDERS] | gpg -c --batch --passphrase [PASSWORD] -o backup.tgz.gpg

    Decrypting:
    gpg -d --batch --passphrase [PASSWORD] backup.tgz.gpg | tar -xzf -

  10. don't write in the backup repository during plesk updates

    I mounted a remote server via sshfs and set it as the plesk backup repository, so I can backup my domains through sftp (with a keyfile).

    But now, whenever I try to upgrade my plesk installation, plesk writes files to my backup repository (i.e. mysql backup before a mysql upgrade) and immediately tries to change the owner of the file, which fails because chown it is not supported on mounted directories.

    The best solution would be to provide the option to set a different path for automated backups.

  11. Enable additional Schedule Backup with or without Full Backup

    Enable additional Schedule Backup and provide an option to disable the obligation to make a Full Backup (letting user the option to create additional Incremental Backups, without messing things like repeated Full Backups). This already happends if the Admin and Client both setup Backups, it create multiple Full Backups which is not necessary since Admin Backups are create in behalf user.

  12. Change password type in Backup Settings via CLI

    Currently, it is only possible to change this setting via Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Settings > Backup Security Settings > Password type
    In case of deploying multiple servers it becomes very time-consuming, so it would be useful to add the ability to change this setting via CLI

  13. Add Incremental backups support for Presence Builder

    Currently, Presence Builder attachments (for example, images that have been added via Slider module to a domain) ends up in every incremental Plesk backup. Such attachments should not be in incremental backups as they are not being changed, modified, etc before the incremental backup starts.
    I suggest adding such a feature for incremental backups support for such Presence Builder files.

  16. Know which Plesk login has created or restored backup in Plesk

    Include in Plesk a new feature to find out which Plesk login has created or restored a backup in Plesk. This could be done recording such logs in Plesk Action Log.

  17. Comments for FTP backups

    May it could be great for a next release of Plesk, that comments could be display in the backups list from the start! Correctly comments for backups on the remote FTP server can not be viewed.

  18. Backup Options

    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…

  19. Keep Static Back up, that can be deleted ONLY manual

    Keep Static Back up, that can be deleted ONLY manual. Prevent rotation to delete a specific back up that i decice, so i have a base back up as reference for as long as i need. That will make me feel safe that if the 7 days of rotation that i have to my back up, passed, i still be able to retrive a back up!
