Our server is running; Plesk 11.0.9 and CentOS 5.7 it has a Q8200 CPU @ 2.33GHz and 2GB of RAM. Now there are just two websites on the server plus a couple of redirects/forwarding domains, although lots of domains are still on the server but turned off in Plesk. Both websites are OSCommerce sites and I just need to keep these sites going until the end of the year when we will switch to our new Joomla based website.
We have seen an increasing number of server crashes and after various checks of the logs, fitting a new BIOS battery, check of the hardware by EasySpace who host the server, installation of ClamAV, LMD and RKHunter (which did find some Trojans and Suspect software), I have traced it down to some external Http activity that is taking all of my CPU time and RAM. Here is a screen capture of the Htop listing and when I killed these processes the CPU and RAM went back to normal. The problem is that I usually have to restart the HTTPD service and sometimes things get so bad that the server crashes and I have to request a power cycle.
I have multiple backups stored under server repository (subscriptions --> <domainname> --> website and domains --> backup manager).
The physical files are located at: /var/lib/psa/dumps/clients/904279/domains/<domainname>/
When I click the green arrow to download these files to a local computer (see attached image) I get a new page with title "Download the backup file". On this page I have the option to set a password on the downloaded file, but no matter what I do (password or no password) the file is not downloaded to my local PC. I don't get a pop-up box with the option to save the file. Just nothing happens ...
Firstly I wonder if there is any possibility to limit the number of cores the plesk backup zipping tool uses? This pigz takes up all my CPU. Is there any way I can reduce the amount of cores it uses because all my websites are down every time a backup takes place for around 3 minutes.
Secondly I get the following in my syslog:
1 baby plesk sendmail: Error during 'check-quota' handler
I don't know what is wrong. I think it's since the upgrade to Plesk 12. I now have 12.0.18 Update #13.
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 an Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit virtual private server with Plesk 12. The server is hired from a hosting provider. The server is used to run the Odoo ERP application (using postgres database).
The Odoo application is running fine and now I want to create a backup of the application using Plesks Backup manager.
I choose configurations and content option in the backup manager but the created backup is only 200kb.
I think the problem is the location where the Odoo application is installed is not included in the backup. I made a tar backup from the server and extracted it on my pc. It seems that the main parts of the Odoo application are in the var, opt, etc and usr directories (not in a domain but under root).
Installing the application in a domain would solve the Plesk backup issue I think but the installation script of Odoo puts Odoo in var, opt, etc and usr directories even if I put the install script in the directory of a created domain. Since the manual Odoo installation is complicated I am very happy to use the script.
My questions are:
1. Is it possible to include the directories var, opt, etc and usr in the Plesk backup and how and where do I do that?
2. Can I restore such a backup without no problem in Plesk?
I created a backup using the backup manager in plesk panel (~4Gb). When I click the green arrow on the right to download, I get transfered to another page that suggests I should enter a password to protect my backup. No matter if I enter a password or skip this security option, I get back to the backup manager overview, but the download doesn't start. There is no error message. Just nothing happens. I also searched in /opt/psa/admin/logs for an error log, but there is none.
From another thread I read the owner should be psaadm for /var/lib/psa as well as /var/lib/psa/dumps (and files/subfolders), on my server the owner is root for all those. But that thread was for plesk 8.
I am trying to run backups to an off site location, however, I have noticed that even if I try on the server side, it will only backup 2gb, which when I check the backup, the file structure is there, but there arent any files in the backups.
I am having issues with the plesk backup manager. I set up my personal FTP personal repository in tools & settings, then backup manager. My ftp is secure with a specific port. here are my options:
FTP server hostname or IP: myipaddress":"port without quotes. Directory for backup files storage: complete also used /complete. Both correct username and password
Use passive mode checked Use FTPS checked Use password protection checked
Here is my scenario:
Personal FTP repository backups are set up with:
Create a multivolume backup Volume size: 2047 Store backup in: Personal FTP Repository max number of backups: 1
For some reason when I manually backed up the server with server repository, my storage went from 14gb to 6gb.. I have zero backups in both server repository and personal FTP repository because I deleted them. Now its stuck at 6gb, which seems that the backup is stored somewhere in the system and is not deleted.Where can I find this backup? I am using CentOS.
I upgraded Plesk 11.5 to the latest version 12.0.08 # 5 and now I can not configure the external FTP backup I get the error:Transport error: unable to list directory: Curl error: Timeout was reached. Also failing the backup shows this error: Unable to rotate dump: The dump rotation is failed with code '126 'at / opt / psa / admin / bin / plesk_agent_manager line 1041.
And this one:Can not upload file 'domains/domain.tld/backup_domain.tld_info_1406210716.xml' to ftp. Error code: 1..my SO Debian 6.0.8
We have a problem with a Plesk backup. We have about 300 domains, the scheduled task starts 23.30 and takes about 16 hours and thats not normal. Before it took about 9-10 hours for 'All configuration and content' and that was too long, so we set up for 'All configuration and content except mail'. It worked for a few days and then it started to take 14 - 16 hours for a server backup. We use Plesk 11.5 on CentOS 6 64bit.
I have a problem with my Plesk Backup Manager... When I'm doing server backup (sending to FTP) I get this message...
Error: Runtime error: Export dump to FTP failed at /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/plesk_agent_manager line 727. at /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/plesk_agent_manager line 727 main:erform('verbose', 4, 'owner-type', 'server', 'split-size', undef, 'session-path', '/usr/local/psa/PMM/sessions/2014-08-12-094353.297', 'description', ...) called at /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/plesk_agent_manager line 1319

A load of my domains were backed up last night and they have been suspended ever since. I have tried the following:
1. Domains -> Backup Manager -> Back Up 2. tick off the box to the left of "Suspend domain until backup task is completed" 3. Tick off the box to the left of "Domain configuration" 4. Click "Back Up".
...That did not fix it
I've tried suspending/activating the domains, but I just receive "Error: Unable to activate the domain: The domain is suspended."
I've also logged into MySQL PSA database and run "update domainaliases set status=0 where status=2;" ...That did not fix it
I have checked and /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/conf/httpd.include file is missing.
I have also run the following command: /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/httpdmng --reconfigure-all
That did not fix it
if I try "/usr/local/psa/bin/domain -u mydomain.com -status enabled" I receive the following error message...
An error occurred during domain update: Turn on domain failed: /usr/share/tomcat5/conf/server.xml:1451: parser error : Extra content at the end of the document vice> tomcatmng: Unable to parse tomcat server config /usr/share/tomcat5/conf/server.xml
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?
Currently Plesk only has the ability to make a full backup of the data. Now, this is quite an issue since I have accounts on my server that are over 280GB. Making a full daily backup of that and allowing clients to have a history of 10 days, isn't viable.
Is there perhaps a way one can make differential backups?
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.
