I get the following error if I open "CP => Domains => DOMAIN => Back Up" page:

Up LevelUp Level
DumpsList::init() failed: Backup files repository does not exist
0: /usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs/domains/backup/dumps_list.php:1 psaerror(string
"DumpsList::init() failed: Backup files repository does not exist")


Such error occurs if the domain backup repository doesn't exist.


Find where are dumps stored:

# grep DUMP_D /etc/psa/psa.conf
DUMP_D /var/lib/psa/dumps

And create this domain dump directory in DUMP_D directory:

mkdir /var/lib/psa/dumps/DOMAIN_NAME
chown psaadm:psaadm /var/lib/psa/dumps/DOMAIN_NAME
chmod 750 /var/lib/psa/dumps/DOMAIN_NAME

Replace DOMAIN_NAME with the real domains' name in the commands above.
