  1. Delete temp. backup files!

    Please clean up temp. backup files from the dumps folder.
    Failed backups (to FTP) remain in the dumps folder filling up the storage space.

    This should not have to happen: please remove these files!

    I am running a workaround cronjob script to delete them every day:

    !/bin/sh backupdumpsdelete

    Delete backup more than 90 days old.

    backupDir="/var/lib/psa/dumps"

    daysToKeep=0

    echo "Checking for files older than $daysToKeep days in $backupDir"
    listOfFiles=find $backupDir -mtime +$daysToKeep
    if [ ! -z $listOfFiles ]
    then
    echo "Found [$listOfFiles]"
    else
    echo "None found."
    fi
    for toDelete in $listOfFiles
    do
    echo "Deleting $toDelete"
    rm -rf $toDelete…

    Hello,
    Thank you for your input. We do not consider this as a feature request but as a normal way for the backups: unnecessary or temporary files should be removed automatically. We already work on this direction, and all known bugs were delivered for Plesk Onyx 17.5 and Plesk Onyx 17.8.
    Do not forget that on “Tools & Settings → Backup settings” there is a separate option “Save backups in the server storage if the upload to FTP fails” – it controls a part of this behavior.
    I would recommend reporting each case with unnecessary backup files to our support department, we will check it carefully and fix.

  2. Make it possible to download large backup files by clicking the green arrow in the backup list.

    Large backup files can not be downloaded since the browser needs to keep connection while the backup is prepared (copied from FTP, recompressed, etc.).

  4. how to schedule a (SQL Server) database backup WITHOUT also copying all user files?

    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?

  5. Fix the scheduled backup lists page - bug alert

    On this page -> https://***.xxxxx.com:8443/modules/scheduled-backups-list/?context=extensionButton_1, when you click on any of the column headings, they are supposed to sort by that column. This is true on all except for the "Name" column. When I click on "Name", the column doesn't sort either way.

  7. Apache log rotation

    Apache log rotation
    Good Morning,
    Why do the log files "logs / access_log.processed" not reach me by email if I have the option "Set log rotation" and it appears as "rotated"?
    Before, the records came to me perfectly, but lately they only get to the mail for a few days.
    Can you help me with the problem?
    Thank you very much

  8. Unable to download large backup files through backup manager in plesk

    Hello,

    We have a backup file of 103 GB size. While trying to download the backup through backup manager by clicking the green arrow in the backup list. It starts to download but fails. Backup is stored in a different locations, so FTP won't helps. Please suggest any download manager helps to keeps the browser connection while backup is prepared. Download manager handle the backups as they usually allow for restarting an interrupted download as well as error checking to ensure the file is completely downloaded. Will this corrupt the backup file? Please advise.

  14. Better translation

    In Backup admin the Backup button in spanish should be traduced as "backup" and not as "copiar". It is confusing.
    The correct rtanslation would be "copia de seguridad", which is too long I guess. But "copiar" is the same as in English "copy",
    The English word Backup is more precise and short at the same time.
    By the way backup admin is traduced also as "Administrador de backups" so it would be more consistent to choose the same word for the button.

    Kind regards

    Nick

    Each backup is already labeled with date in the interface and backup file name put on ftp includes time stamp. Could you please describe specific scenario with the use of this functionality if backup files are placed into separate directories?

    UPD: Sorry, we are closing the request as no information were provided for over a month.

    We have to close this item as Irrelevant, because it does not contain any actual feature request or useful information.

    This says that the maximum number of scheduled backups is limited to 2. You can change this limit in Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Settings > Maximum number of scheduled backup files to store
