Where is the server backup repository located and how to change it?
The root backup directory is stored in the file
/etc/psa/psa.conf and is set by the variable
# cat /etc/psa/psa.conf | grep -w DUMP_D DUMP_D /var/lib/psa/dumps
This directory contains server backups, backups of resellers, clients, domains, and daily MySQL dumps.
Object backups are placed according to their ownership.
To change default server backup repository follow the steps below:
Create a directory for server backups, for example:
# mkdir /plesk_backups
/etc/psa/psa.confin your favorite text editor;
Change the value of
DUMP_Dto the one created in step 1:
# cat /etc/psa/psa.conf | grep -w DUMP_D DUMP_D /plesk_backups
Set correct ownership to directory
# chown psaadm.psaadm /plesk_backups
# /etc/init.d/sw-cp-server restart
Now backups will be stored in directory
