    I would just run teh pleskbackup utility from a manually setup cron. I have a shell script that runs pleskbackup --all /tmp/file which then tarbalsl it up onto an NFS share. Its a bit more complicated than that, but thats how I use it in a basic form. As I said, I would create a shell script to run the pleskbackup utilty or call it directly from cron at a specified time every night. If you still have time drift, I'd say theres something wrong with your system clock or NTP if you utilize it.

    How I would set it up, keep in mind this backs up everything and not just client level.
    Basic setup (as ROOT):
    crontab -e
    0 3 * * * /pathtopleskroot/bin/pleskbackup --all /pathtofile/filename

    I personally don't trust a lot of the new gui stuff they introduce. When alls said and done, the CP executes the pleskbackup utility anyhow.

    For the client backup its almost the same see here: http://download1.swsoft.com/Plesk/Plesk8.0/Doc/plesk-8-backup-restore-users-guide/18900.htm

    Backup manager No.

    Sorry not able to reply you earlier. I got a very serious problem now! - backup could not work after upgrading to plesk 8.0.1!

    Saw my disk full and received a plesk system email - cannot log FTP account .. cannot backup.

    I got to solve the disk problem first as I could not even able to login to plesk admin.

    Any idea.

    Backup Manager version - 8.0.1-fc2.build80060713.16.

    Using FC2, Plesk 8.0.1

    I keep getting this backup problem whereby disk became full.

    - received email logs for every domain continuously:
    e.g Domain: xxx.com
    Plesk entry point: https://xen2.com:8443/

    Following error is occured during scheduled backup process:

    Couldn't resolve host 'ftp:'

    Checked the dump folder /var/lib/psa/dumps/ and found folder 0, 1 ,2, 3, 4.. etc. taking lots of diskspace with dump files.

    So far, I use only backup to local directory, not using any ftp account at all!

    How can I stop the backup manager for the time being?

    Going crazy! Plesk development team - could you post some immediate help or advise?!
