Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Can't Restore Backup And Replace Files
May 25, 2014
I am trying to restore a backup that Parallels Plesk made (latest version) and I used to get the option at some point to replace everything. Now, I only get the options to select what I want to restore and it fails because it says certain things, domains, content is already there.
I can't find the option anymore that allows me to say replace everything during the backup. Was that removed? If so, I'd really....really like it back.
Failed deployment of domain localhost.localdomain
Execution of /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/api-cli/domain.php --create localhost.localdomain -owner admin -do-not-apply-skeleton -notify false -guid 4fe5de63-3103-4fa0-a01c-04894e167107 -vendor-guid 75b2fa01-6c6e-4cb2-8f1b-9c69757fd3ec -creation-date 2014-02-13 -ip 188.8.131.52 -ignore-nonexistent-options failed with return code 1.
An error occurred during domain creation: There are no available resources of this type (domains) left. Requested: 1; available: 0.
After restore (without any errors) some of my files are missing from one particular domain. The files are present in the backup however, they just don't restore. In this case it is a Wordpress installation and the complete wp-content folder did not restore one one of the domains.
i have make a full Plesk Backup on my Old Server with Plesk 12.0(Ubuntu) and will restore the Backup on my new Server with Plesk 12.0(CentOS).When i will restore the backup i get this error: "Error: The source file is not a valid XML file. If you supplied an archive file containing a backup from Plesk version 9 or later, then extract the contents of this archive, and process the extracted XML file with the converter. If you want to convert a backup file from a Plesk version earlier than 9, then you first need to process it with the pre9-backup-convert utility, and then process the resulting file with the pre10-backup-convert utility."
I made a backup of my website with plesk backup manager on an external FTP, now I want to restore this backup on a new server which isn't using plesk, for test purposes. I've downloaded the backup (which is in .tar) on my PC, and extracted all files firstly from the general .tar archive, then the user_data from .tgz. Then to extract all the databases (they were in a folder "databases" after I've extracted the general .tar file), I extracted them from database_name_145536536.tgz, then from database_name_145536536.tar, so that now I've a series of "database_name_145536536" files. (145536536 are some example numbers).
I'm interested in restoring both files and mysql databases.
To restore the files, I can simply use the extracted files from the user_data archive.
To restore the mysql databases, I tried to do "mysql -p -u username database_name < file" and everything seemed to work fine.
Is this process ok? Is it 100% safe and sure or I could face some bugs?
I've generated migration files on a source server that runs plesk11.5..I've transfer these files to my new server (plesk 12).I've logged into plesk on the new server, go to migration tool and create a new migration using local files.with chrome dev tools. i can see the following a post request is sent to :
/plesk/ server/migration/start/ the response is a redirection ( http status 303 , location = /admin/backup/restore/type/import/id/migration )a
After several attempts to this url I've got : admin/backup/restore/type/import/id/migration net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS..is there a way to restore the data using the command line ?
I have a 6GB backup file created with another Plesk Backup Manager, now I trying to upload this backup file to my Plesk Backup Manager but after upload 3% I am getting "413 Request Entity Too Large" error, I tried with disable NGINX but still getting this error.
how can I resolve this error or is their any other way to upload my file on backup manager?
I see that Backup Manager have a file size restriction of 2GB how can I increase this?
I have a repository backup that I want to partially restore. I see the option "Selected Objects" but it cannot be selected. I'm wondering why that is not an option? I'm also wondering what "restore this backup despite the fact that it does not have a valid signature" means. I see a check box. Is Plesk telling me my backup doesn't have a valid signature? What is the meaning of a "signature"?
When i do full backup and download this backup, plesk create a temporary file inside directory /usr/local/psa/tmp but after download finish this file is not deleted, and this is causing problem because i have a server with small disk space.
I was running on a Ubuntu 10.04 LTS VPS and had this error too, then yesterday imported the domain from the old VPS to our new Plesk Server (Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS) and I still get this error on this one domain.
This is the error in question...

When you delete a site backup from its "Backup Manager" Panel, it is removed and no longer displayed in the Panel. However, I cannot tell if this action actually does anything with the real site backup files in "/var/lib/psa/dumps". Does this action merely remove it from PSA's database but not touch any actual files? If this is true, then how are site backup files supposed to be managed if this action doesn't actually delete them?
Since Microupdate 11.0.9 #52/#53 I get the following error from my scheduled backup:
<description>Failed to pack files back__domainname_mn_1306110314 in /var/lib/psa/dumps/xy/clients/xy/domains/domainname [ 945838637056 bytes free of 980876906496 bytes total on mount point 0]</description>
Some related problems have already been discussed here in the forum (e.g.: [URL] .... or this one: [URL] ...., but it all did not quite match with my problem.
Would like to know what are the dangers of backing up and restoring full entire system backups (with plesk installed) to another server with a different ip address? Will the restored plesk setup operate properly and offer an ip address change in the system, or will there be any pre-requisites required such as manual ip changing within the system core files?
We've been experiencing a lot of trouble with novice customers that want to install an Application Vault package that has sub-optimal default settings, e.g.
customer wants to install wordpress, clicks on Application Vault -> wordpress -> "INSTALL"
This will install, without any questions for settings, wordpress into domain.com/wordpress - which is not what people want. I know that there is a button with teh drop down menu that shows "custom", however, people don't see/know about it and click "install".
Is there a way to remove / replace the "quick install" button and have the "install custom" as default.
I have anywhere between 80,000 - 90,000 webpages that have a single code into this. Unfortunately at the time the web developer I used didn't use PHP includes. So each .html file has the code in it.
I want a way so I can do a single command either a program or an SSH command can find the syntax in the files and replace it will code I have. Its just a single line of code that is basically for an adsense code, so the pub-blahblahblah etc..
Does anyone know of a SSH command I can use, or a program that will find and replace without manually opening up each file? 80k - 90k of opening files then find/replace will take forever!
