  • Plesk 12.5 for Linux


Exporting a backup to a file over the CLI does nothing, just waiting:

# /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/plesk_agent_manager export-dump-as-file --dump-file-name "/var/lib/psa/dumps/domains/"  -v --output-file "/home/testback.tar"


Wrong utility is used for the exporting.


The following command should be used instead:

# ./fullbackup.php -e /var/lib/psa/dumps/backup_info.xml <output_file>

For more detailed description of the utility, please, refer to KB article.
