    [solved] How do I change / set up the backup directory

    Hi.

    I only have a very small /var-partition, so I have to move the backups on another.
    But the filmng (maybe part of automatic backups) failed, because it cant create a directory where a symlink already exists.

    Situation: /var/lib/psa is a symlink to /srv/backup/psa
    Error Message while creating a backup:
    I also cant run the mkdir command as root.
    How can I change the plesk backup directory main path?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    try to change this directly in /etc/psa/psa.conf file. should work.
