  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…

  3. 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:

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  11. Backup Manager: Multiple FTP Storages

    It would be very nice if it would be possible to define more than one FTP Storage in the backup manager for that we can backup all on two or more different FTP Backup servers.

  12. R1Soft server backup manager

    R1 Soft SBM is a stable and effective way of backing up the full server, and per user / per domain accounts. It is long overdue for support in PLESK, in the same way (and for the same reasons) that other major control panels already implement it.

  13. 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. Add XML API operations to manage Backup Password and Scheduled Backup

    Some useful functionalities of Backup in Web UI are not available in the XML API. Like configuring Password or Scheduled Backup. Those operations are at server level.

    I think it would be useful to add the 4 following operations :

    backup-manager / set-secure-backup-settings
    backup-manager / get-secure-backup-settings

    With attributes like :
    - use-password-protection : boolean
    - password : string

    backup-manager / set-schedule-settings
    backup-manager / get-schedule-settings

    With attributes like :
    - enable : boolean
    - period : 86400 | 604800 |2592000
    - hour : integer from 0 to 23
    - minute : 0 | 15 | 30 |45
    - use-incremental : boolean …

  15. 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.

  16. 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".

  19. Extended Backup Settings

    Right now Plesk backup system is very limited to be honest, it's missing some key features, one thing i would like is to be able to controle backups way more then now, and have multiple locations to backup to.

    1) Abillity to do multiple backups pr. day, option to controle what is backup at what time points, ex database backup at 6:00 12:00 18:00 and full backup 00:00.

    2) Abillity to have multiple backup locations, with our barebone setup we have multiple backup locations, 2xFTP and S3 backup, Plesk is missing the option for multiple backup locations.

  20. Set day for full backup on incremental backup.

    Requesting the ability to set a day of a week, or day of the month that the full backup will be ran if using incremental backup.

    reason for request:
    for our setup, we have 15 plesk servers running all of one SAN. we find that on the day of the week the full backup is running, the IO / load on the SAN is much higher. it would be nice to be able to space out those servers by selecting days the full backups are preformed.
