How to restore the backup on another Plesk server?


  1. Transfer the exported backup to destination Plesk server.

  2. Restore the backup:

On Linux:

    # /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskrestore --restore /tmp/ -level domains -ignore-sign
  • /root/ - path to domain backup
  • -ignore-sign - is used to ignore server-specific, randomly generated key #126324.

More restoration options can be also found:

# /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskrestore --help

On Windows:

`"%plesk_cli%\pleskrestore.exe" --restore "c:\" -ignore-sign -level domains -verbose`
