  2. Limit amount of backups per customer

    Hey guys,

    I am sure that I speak for hundreds of users when I say that having a limit on backups per customers and or subscriptions should be an important and available option. The option to also limit backups based on the customers subscription storage size will be even better. Otherwise, customers who overuse the backup option will dramatically increase storage space on the server without realization of the administrator. It wouldn't be ideal for an administrator to enter the dumps folder to delete random customer backups. Really hope you guys can resolve this and add this feature as soon…

  4. Backup single account

    It would be great to have a single interface to manage backups of individual accounts (single-domain or single user).
    I would like to manage a single server backup ftp and let me choose which accounts to backup.

    Obviously the backup file must be "single" for each account and not a single file for the entire server. If you want to make the restore of a single account, I have to use a single backup file.

    Currently I have a script that through bash (or cygwin for windows) backs up the single account by bees and upload via ftp on external…

  6. backup local and remote at once

    I've seen many options for backups, but it would be a great addition if we could use the backup schedule to make a backup local AND somewhere remote.

    Now i can schedule backups either only local or only remote and since i cannot make multiple schedules for remote backups and local backups i have to make local backups with the scheduler and do things by hand to get another backup in my personal FTP storage.

    I prefer to have backups local, for quick restore availability and remote for when sh*t hits the fan.

    So, i'd like to see an option…

  7. Start the backup only if your server has the specified amount of free disk space (in megabytes) *

    why MB?
    why is the input field so small?
    why only 5 digits?

    we need GB!!! or?

  8. mail after successful backup

    Currently you get after completing a backup, only one mail, if errors occur. For me it would be helpful to have the option to receive an e-mail even when successful backup.

  11. Backup / Restore for Service Plans

    Hi there,
    it would be very nice to implement the possibility to backup / restore the service plans. (export & import)
    We have many servers and it is a lot of work and it takes long time always to create the service plans again, and again...

    Or is there already such a feature and we didn´t find it `til now?

    Regards,
    Thomas Kälber

  14. Return backup file name features to 12.5

    I know that the backup feature was rewritten in 12.5, but it is very difficult to easily identify various server and individual site backups on a remote FTP drive now that all you see displayed in the UI is the date / time. The backup features of 12.0 that included adding a prefix to the file name and also being able to actually see the file name is sorely missed.

  15. FTP - Auto-Create Folder

    When it comesto FTP Backup one can configure external FTP space and det a folder to be used.

    If that folder does not exist Plesk errors out this fact and the normal user is somehow lost.

    It would be a nice feature to have a checkbox to be checked that says "create folder structure if not existing".

  18. Exclude domains from backup in UI

    Add an option to exclude domains / clients / resellers from a backup to the Plesk user interface.

    Currently, it is possible only via command line:

  20. Dropbox Backup Extension

    Can you please make an option in the Dropbox scheduled backup for weekly and monthly...?

    We want to turn off daily but keep weekly or monthly.

    This is also useful for bandwidth when you are being charged everyday to output xxGB out of the sever to Dropbox. (weekly may be ok since this Dropbox is not the primary backup solution but a secondary one for us and we don't need it to upload the xxGB backup daily...)

    Thank you
