    You can backup using the psadump, but this is quite slow, or you can backup using a shell script (there are a couple on this forum also). Another solution is 4PSA Total Backup, which is more advanced as it supports incremental backups and remote storage.

    I would go with total backup with the tar method.....

    This backup system has recovered my entire sitebuiler dbs after someone took a huge **** on my server. ;)

    OKeee...
    So now i am using a script --> tar -cvzf Total_backup_03.10.2005.tar.gz /home/httpd/vhosts /var/lib/mysql /var/qmail/mailnames to backup the system. i was looking for PSADump but cant find it anyware.
    Is this a standard plesk tool ore is it custom?

    Sorry for asking but i am a newbie at plesk administrating.

    (thanks for al the help so far )

    when we try to execute the command

    psadump -f /root/psa_backup/my_psa_backup_file --clients-ids-skip=/root/psa_backup/my_client_ids_file

    it says :::
    psadump : command not found

    Any idea?

    Here's what it looks like in my weekly cron job:

    PHP:
    /usr/local/psa/bin/psadump -f backupfilename --nostop --nostop-domain
    You can modify the above to include a client ID list file., which is what I do for my nightly backup.

    This is essential reading:
