The scheduled domain level backup rotation does not work. Backup files are not being deleted automatically.


This behavior is considered to be a software issue. The issue was fixed in Parallels Plesk 11.5 #MU 42. The internal request ID is PPPM-1556.


Please update Plesk to the latest avaliable microupdate in order to fix the issue. If for some reason you are unable to carry out the update, use the fixed plesk_agent_manager as below:

  1. Back up the original file:

    # cp /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/plesk_agent_manager{,.orig} 
  2. Replace the file with the fixed plesk_agent_manager

  3. Make sure that plesk_agent_manager has the correct permissions and ownership:

    # stat /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/plesk_agent_manager
    Access: (0755/-rwxr-xr-x)  Uid: (  500/  psaadm)   Gid: (  500/  psaadm)

    Change permissions if necessary:

    # chmod 755 /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/plesk_agent_manager
    # chown psaadm:psaadm /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/plesk_agent_manager
