  1. Add multiple S3 Backup destination/locations

    It would be interesting to be able to have multiple S3-compatible storages configured at a time, so that multiple backup destinations can be used.

  2. Allow configuring additional storage for Acronis Backup extension users

    Acronis allows setting up additional storages for backups https://www.acronis.com/en-us/support/documentation/AcronisCyberCloud/#managing-locations-and-storage.html

    Currently, the way Plesk defines integration with Acronis, Acronis extensions users can't do this.

  3. 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!

  6. Backup/Restore a table or DB to file

    Backup / Restore manager is fine, but what if we only want to restore one / several tables, not the whole Database?
    Add feature to restore single tables only.

    Or even more flexible: add the possibility to restore a DB dump to a file. This file can then be searched / adjusted to restore specific tables only. Once it is adjusted we could load it in the DB / perform the restore.

  7. Change the extension order of Plesk multi-volume backups

    At the moment the extension order of Plesk multi-volume backups is the following:
    <DateFormateHHMMss.zip>
    <DateFormateHHMMss.zip1>
    <DateFormateHHMMss.zip2>

    This means that volumes .zip1, .zip2 can not be extracted after their downloading because they have an incorrect zip extension format.

    The idea to change the extension order of Plesk multi-volume backups to:
    <DateFormateHHMMss>.Zip
    <DateFormateHHMMss>1.Zip
    <DateFormateHHMMss>2.Zip

    That the multi-volume backups have the correct zip format and can be extracted.

  9. Separate rotation for backups hosted in clouds

    When on Plesk server there is not much space, and on clouds (like Amazon S3), there is a lot - the separate rotation for backups would be useful: to set on Plesk to rotate frequently, and in the cloud - far more rarely.

  11. 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. 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.

  16. 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…

    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.

  20. Log the action of the backup download by the administrator.

    There should be a log event for the backup download by the administrator user.
