    hello

    I need to backup my plesk domains more than 1 time a day.
    The graphical interface allow to backup only 1 a day...

    So I've decided to schedule a "pleskbackup domains ...." command line.
    Is this correct? Does this backup everything ? (mails, mysql database, files, DNS...)

    It seems to do the backup correctly, but how to restore then if I have problem?
    Using the graphical interface, I see the red-cross saying "this is not a backup file" or "backup incorrect". And I cannot use the file to restore.

    Is this a known bug?
    is there any command line to restore?

    Thanks!

    If you choose "pleskbackup domains" it will backup just your website.

    To backup the server configuration settings and all user data you have on your hosting machine, including server and control panel configuration, remote database servers, license keys, user accounts, Web sites, databases, and mailboxes with e-mail messages,

    1. Log in as root to your server.
    2. Change to the directory, where Plesk is installed:

    cd /plesk_installation_directory/bin
    3. Run the following command:

    ./pleskbackup all <filename>

    I have not heard about it. Does backup performs correctly? Have you notice any error messahes?

    >is there any command line to restore?

    yes, you can restore it by the following way:
    /plesk_installation_directory/bin/pleskrestore --restore <backup file name> -map <map file name> -level all
