  • Plesk 9.5 for Linux/Unix


When you perform the backup procedure on Parallels Plesk Pane,l backupmng utility can be interrupted with the following error messages:

/bin/sh: line 1:  2462 Segmentation fault      /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/backupmng>
/dev/null 2>&1;

In the /var/log/messages log file you can see related errors like:

Aug 24 01:33:02 srv9 kernel: backupmng[30573]: segfault at 0000000000000010 rip 00000039b6a4a855 rsp 00007fff4fa91710 error 4


The fixed backupmng utility for CentOS 5 and Debian 5 is located in the attached file.
To fix the installation, replace the %plesk_dir%/admin/sbin/backupmng file with the attached file and correct owner and permissions to root:root, 750. You may correct permissions with commands chown and chmod:

# chown root:root /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/backupmng
# chmod 750 /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/backupmng

Note: %plesk_dir% is an environment variable, which points to the Plesk installation folder. By default, the installation folder is /usr/local/psa/

Note: this problem was completely  fixed in the version 10.2 and higher.
