When I am trying to restore backup using Plesk CLI, I am getting the following error:

/usr/local/psa/bin/pleskrestore --restore /var/lib/psa/dumps/domains/ -level domains
Unable to decrypt backup. Specified key is not suitable.


Backup was created with password protection, but you are trying to restore it without password.


If you used password protection for a backup, use -backup-password option to specify the password. You can also set the password with the environment variable PLESK_BACKUP_PASSWORD:

 /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskrestore --restore /var/lib/psa/dumps/domains/ -level domains -backup-password password

You can restore this backup without password from GUI, but all the user's passwords will be lost.
