    Hi to all,

    Well all I can say it's defiantly Friday the 13th for me!

    In the early hours of this morning I had a server hardware fault which has resulted in my entire server being lost, not to worry I thought, I have my backups on the 1and1 backup server which is cron'd by Plesk, well that's all well and good until I tried to restore them.

    First I have imaged my server to the same Centos 5 version which included Plesk 10.0.1, then via SSH I incrementally upgraded to each version to ensure every thing was reinstalled up to the latest version I had this being 10.2.0 as I have had issue before when trying to jump straight to the latest version.

    Now the fun starts as if I try to do a restore in Plesk which requires me to copy the personal FTP (1and1 backup server) repository tar file to the server repository all hell breaks lose resulting in below error or even a server 500 error with no access to Plesk CP!

    I had this once before many years ago and remember there was a way to restore the 1and1 backup server tar files via the serial connection you get with 1and1 accounts trouble is I cannot for the life of me remember the commands need to accomplish this so wondered in anyone here would know and care to share it please.

    I am looking to restore a backup of 4.80GB which might be why Plesk is having a fit, alternatively anyone know the command to download it locally for archive as I cannot afford to lose it. Again if I try this in Plesk it results in errors.

    Here is the error being received while in Plesk when trying to do a transfer or download from the personal FTP repository.

    Here's hoping some bright spark can come to my rescue.

    These connections are issued by Plesk Backup Manger - whenever remote FTP repository is browsed through Control Panel interface, Backup Manager downloads all XML descriptions for each backup in the directory. It appears that each file is downloaded in its own connection instance which causes FTP server to promptly reject such connections.
    The only solution I can suggest is to increase limits on number of connections on FTP server.

    Hi to all,

    If anyone is getting the following error:

    You might want to check your tmp size, when I had the above error my tmp partition was only 2GB in size while the backup file I was restoring was 4.80GB. So all I did was increase my tmp partition size and all went smoothly.

    HOW TO INCREASE YOUR TMP PARTITON (NOTE: This following tut info is not mine and I cannot remember the original source as I have had it for a while now and shows you how to create a 2GB partition so increase to your desired size)
