  • Applies to:
  • Plesk 9.x for Linux/Unix


The backup file made and uploaded to the external FTP repository (using the command below) is not visible in Plesk Panel CP:
# /opt/psa/bin/pleskbackup --server -c -s=2047M --output-file=ftp://LOGIN:PASSWORD@HOST/srv38_fullServer_configuration.backup.tar


Plesk Panel only lists files in a FTP repository. The names match the following regexp:
Unix platform -- ^.*_[0-9]{10}\.(tar|tgz)$
Windows platform -- ^.*_[0-9]{10}\.zip$

Parallels recommends using the following schema for backup file names: {PREFIX}{DATE}.tar where {PREFIX} could be substituted with the arbitrary string, {DATE} -- date as it is returned by the command date "+%y%m%d%H%M"


Consider the backup file name format listed above when uploading backup files to the remote FTP repository.
