    I'm trying to use pleskbackup to back up some domain before removing them from the server. Let's say the domain I want to back up is "mydomain.com". I go and create a 0-byte file at /root/backup/mydomain_com and then execute the following:

    I've searched around but can't find much information on this error. Any advice?

    I'm pretty new to pleskbackup tool, but I'd say the last argument is the output-file which is simply the path/file without any flags, like the -f.

    By the way I think the -f flag reads from file which domains to backup.

    The backup tool won't create the path for the backup file, so you must create it previously.

    And last but not least, it also support help in the form of:

    /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup help

    Here is how to backup a domain by command line.

    #/usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup -v domains <domain name> <backup file name>

    #/usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup -v domains mydomain.com /root/backup/mydomain_com
