Plesk 11.x / Linux :: How To Do MySQL Database Daily Backup Via Scheduled Tasks

Feb 12, 2015

I'm new to Parallels Panel. I use version 11.0.9. I want to backup mysql database daily. First of all, what is the best way for daily database backup in plesk. I'm trying to do this in Scheduled Tasks and I use mysqldump command although I'm not sure.

I chose the time and day first and then I switched on the task. I typed the following command to Command line.

mysqldump -uusername -ppassword databasename | gzip -9 >/httpdocs/mydatabase.sql.gz
mysqldump -uusername -ppassword databasename >/httpdocs/mydatabase.sql.gz

This created only a blank file. When I use this without gzip, nothing changes.

1- Is mysqldump right command for database backup?
2- Should I define full path for mysqldump, gzip and database? If so, how can I find out the full path of mysqldump, gzip and my database? Because I can't see their locations in panel.
3- I can't see any error message. There is not any log file in httpdocs folder. Where does the log file exist?
4- It is weird but should the username be "database user" or should I write "root" ?

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Scheduled Tasks - Correct Permissions

Jun 2, 2014

I have the following command to execute every 5 minutes this PHP file which is working correctly:

/usr/bin/wget -qq -O /dev/null

How can I make it so only the system (scheduled task or the server itself) can access to the file to execute it. I tried placing CHMOD 700 to the PHP file but everyone is still able to access to it and executive it.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Domain Scheduled Tasks (Client Area)

We have a VPS with Centos 5 and Plesk 12.0.18.

The CRON service is running and works correctly, the Scheduled tasks on the administration Plesk Panel (tools & Setting / Scheduled tasks / root user) works ok, but when a customer sets a new scheduled task from her domain panel, don't works.

The task is a simple WGET command.

Plesk 12.x / Windows :: Scheduled Tasks Not Working After Moving To New Server

Jul 7, 2014

I've just migrated server to server but I didn't use the migration manager, I simply backed up each domain's content and restored those backups on the new server.

The issue I have run into is the scheduled tasks at the admin level (Tools & Settings > Scheduled Tasks) work but any schedule task under a domain do not. The scheduled tasks under the domains show as inactive (no green tick) and when I click to enable them, I get the following message

"Information: The scheduled task Google Product Feed Daily Scheduled Task was switched on."

If I then look at the page, even though the above message says it is, the scheduled task is still not enabled. Going into the scheduled task and switching it on there results in the same message, but it doesn't switch on.

How to rebuild all of the scheduled tasks within Plesk?

Currently Installed: v. 12.0.18

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: How To Create Two Backup Tasks

Nov 6, 2014

I see I can only create a single backup task in plesk, server self repository or ftp repository.

My idea is duplicate backups inside and outside of my vps, I mean, I want to create a backup task in my vps and in my own ftp server.

It is possible?

Mar 1, 2015

I have setup Backup Manager to backup Files and Configurations every week for every subscription. This worked really good however we are now considering changing this to daily basis.

As the free space on server will decrease. I was wondering i there is any way with cronjobs how to remove the backup older than 24 weeks. How to make such an cronjob script?

If possible i also would like to know where the Backup Manager physically stores its backups?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Scheduled Backup Not Working?

Nov 5, 2014

I am running Plesk 12 on CentOS 7 64bit. I have set up the server backup instead of the website backup as I assume that will backup all server settings, as well as the website? I am running Plesk Web Admin Edition.

I have the backup set to run and dump into Personal FTP, but it does not run. If I run the backup manually, everything works great, but the scheduled backups don't work.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Global Scheduled Backup Task Not Working

Dec 19, 2014

I'm running: 12.0.18 Update #29

I'm having troubles getting the global scheduled backup task to work at Home > Tools & Settings >Backup Manager > Server Repository.

At a subscription the scheduled backup works how it should.

Home > Subscriptions > > Websites & Domains > Server Repository

The problem is as follows: When I set the scheduled task at a specific time example 00:00 it does not run at all. But when I just do "Create a backup" it does work...

I've done [URL] .... and everything in here is configured how it should be.

This is my configuration for scheduled task:

Cronjob is placed in : /etc/cron.d/plesk-backup-manager-task

Also did run: rpm -q --scripts psa-backup-manager | sed 1d | sh

This problem is only in the global backup configuration.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Scheduled Backup Hangs At 100% - Never Finishing Completely

Jan 24, 2015

I have an issue with my daily backup. I configured to have a daily backup on an external FTP server. Everything looks to work correctly but in the panel I see that the task is a 100% forever. Never finishing completely.. So the next day, the task is not starting.. I have to remove manually the task in backup manager screen.

here is the last lines of the log file (in /var/log/plesk/PMM/backup-2015-01-20-20-46-02-824)

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Required Storage For Multi-volume Scheduled FTP Backup

Apr 8, 2015

My Centos server running Plesk12 is running scheduled backups every sunday 3AM.

The backup is configured so that it's created as a multivolume backup with a volume size of 2047MB.

The backup is placed on my Personal FTP repo (another plesk12 server mounted with big storage).

The backup content is configured to backup server config and content (all).

The problem I have is when the backup is running I can see that it creates the volumes and stores it locally. After it send all the volumes the the external FTP repo it will delete the local (tmp) data. See my attached screenshot for storage health during backup.

Is this behaviour normal? This way we can never run a backup to an external FTP repo when our server passed 50% storage. Is it not normal to:

- Create a volume
- Send it to FTP repo
- Delete volume locally
- Repeat until done

Plesk 11.x / Windows :: How To Run A Task After Scheduled Backup

Oct 29, 2014

Is there a way to run an additional task after the scheduled backup has completed?I want to copy the backup off-site. I can't use FTP, otherwise I'd use the built-in 'Personal FTP Repository' feature. (See Rsync, Amazon S3, Rackspace cloud files, etc)

I could just create a new scheduled task, but the backup takes an unpredictable amount of time, and the tasks need to run sequentially. Also, the 2nd task should only run if the backup succeeds.

I could disable the backups in the control panel and create a new scheduled task that does both the backup and the additional task. But then the functionality of the control panel's Backup Manager page is lost.
