    version

    I'm running windows 2000 with plesk 6.5.1
    First i installed the original release with the fixes and then the 6.1.1 patch ...and then again plesk login an install the hot fixes for the raid issue.
    My new server will not have raid.

    Plesk 6.5 does not have backup facility at this moment. They are working on it.

    The best thing to do is ghost your entire drive I guess.

    When changing hardware like that a ghost will probably not function properly.

    You can backup the \plesk\mysql\data directory, the \plesk\mailenable\ dir for mail, the \vhosts\ dir and the NT User Security database.

    Once you restore these after installing Plesk you can then run command line utilities to recreate all sites, web and ftp, in Plesk.

    Is anybody have a clue about the release date of Backup Restore utulities for 6.5?

    I could not understand why Sw-soft focusing tools as auto updater etc.. even Backup&Restore utulities still not released.

    If someone know how can we Backup&Restore successfully Please share with us..

    You could also just email SW-Soft and ask for the beta backup utilities.

    Ah i dind't know they have allready a beta version out there for the backup util.

    does it work?

    do you have it, and can you give it to me?

    i have set up a test server with plesk on it and i also test the german language package for it. but it has still some mistakes in it.

    best regards chris

    Works great, but there are some known bugs. Couldn't state them off the top of my head because it is what Plesk is telling me, not what I"m seeing. I believe they were more client side then server side.

    There is a post about them somewhere in these 6.5 forums about beta testing them and where to email.
