    When I was setting up MSSQL, I was having problems getting everything working. I finally figured out what the problem was, but I had the host set to because initially I thought it might be having trouble with the localhost designation.

    Now that I have it working, I was trying to get backups frunning, but PSA is telling me that it won't backup remote MSSQL installations!

    I am guessing that it is assuming since I have an IP in there that it is a remote install, even thought the is the same as localhost.

    Well, I tried to change it to localhost so I can have backups, but it won't let me telling me there are databases already in use (true statement)

    So, long questions short, how can I force this cahnge? Where is this data stored and how can I manually change it since there really is no difference between localhost and

    I love answering my own questions. :)

    Okay, using MySQL Front, I connected to the special psa database on por 8306. Then I found the table misc which contains the settings. I cahnged the fiels mssql_data_source to localhost, and now everyone and and everything is happy!

    Right you are. Plesk cannot backup mssql databases from remote server. It's not a bug . It's feature :)) Plesk just has no any permissions to do it.
