Servage Review - Will Not Restore Backup

May 27, 2008

I just found out the other day that all my website files have disappeared.

I emailed Servage who said it was a hardware failure.

I don't have a backup as they never advised me to.

They have said they have their own backup but they will NOT use it as it would restore over other people's accounts.

Why can't they just restore it to a different server and copy?

I am fighting them on this, they didn't even tell me there had been a failure.

So I Do An RSync Backup - How Do I Restore It?

May 3, 2008

Backing up a server is obviously very important. Lets say I do a daily rSync backup and eventually my server HDD crashes, I know it isn't just a 'one click' job to restore my backup but what is it necessary to do in order to carry out a complete and effective restore back to how it was?

A step-by-step 'tutorial' on restoring an rSync backup would be helpful not just to me but to many 'would-be' server administrators.

Full Backup, Can I Restore With No Modifications

Jul 8, 2009

I have inherited a server that has somewhat non-standard config, e.g. NFS mount and lighthttpd. I don't have a handle on all the way it is setup quite yet.

So my question is: If I rsync backup the hard disk to an offsite backup, then in case of a crash, can I restore the whole thing (again using rsync) without any tweaking necessary (which I may not be able to do). In other words, would the webserver start working without any tweaks?

Host That Allows MySQL Backup/restore Via FTP

Sep 24, 2009

I need to get the h3ll away from Godaddy, fast!

However, my site has a large MySQL database (200 megabytes) and it's impossible to backup or restore via phpMyadmin. Godaddy has a feature on their control panel, where you can restore/backup your MySQL database to a special diretory on your web http file space, which you can upload/download vis FTP. I use this alot.

Is there any other web hosting company that offers such a feature? I haven't seen this anywhere except on Godaddy.

As to why I need to get away from Godaddy:

Basically what they did was, my site was getting too much traffic (even though it's still well under Godaddy's advertised limits for that plan)... so they sent me an email that says:

"Your site is using too much server resources. We have moved you to a new server to protect our other customers. Please identify steps to reduce your site traffic and contact us."

They moved my site to what is, apparently, a punishment area (Godaddy Hell) where all the high volume sites go. It is so extremely slow, my site might as well not exist... it is inaccessible to my visitors for all intents and purposes.

Backup And Restore Mysql Databases

May 10, 2008

I have a corrupted VPS, and have some mysql databases on it.

I want to backup databases and restore them on the new server.

Cpanel service is down on the vps and I cannot transfer accts.

Is it possible to do so ?

1- Zip or Tar the username folder in /home dir.

2- zip or tar the database name in /var/lib/mysql folder

Either by SSH or File manager trough HyperVM

Then transfer files some where safe...

When vps is rebuilt, restore the archives and databases to
the folders I have backed up before rebuilt.

There are also some accounts on a terminated vps that there is only an image of the vps available so, I only can tar files using a jailed shell account, move to the new vps and untar them.

how to do it and avoid database problems.

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Restore Backup On New Server

May 24, 2014

I recently opened a new plesk account on another server and need to restore a backup from a previous server. Both plesk 11.5.

How can I do this ?

I don't have ssh or other access.

Can I just copy the guid ID off the new server and overwrite the extracted backup files?

Only issue I have with that is that a can't redo the XML file required for uploading backups to restore...

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Restore Backup Via PHPMyAdmin

Dec 6, 2014

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?
