I have two servers with plesk 8.1

    I try to clone the 2nd server in order to have a complete backup.

    I used pleskbackup and pleskrestore (all). But this resulted in a corrupt Database.

    Is it possible to only backup all Domains, Domainaliases and all Emailaccounts?

    I have to synchonize some MySQL-DBs (I assume, that plesk stores there the configuration too).

    I should have two different physical servers but with identical configuration of email and the web (httpdocs-folder).

    Does anyone have some hints how to do this correcty?

    My 1st approach was a failure. I tried to do this full pleskbackup and I synchronized the mysql-path (I assume that whis was the mistake !!!) and I synchronized the Web-folders. After that, my Emailaccounts were corrupt (some plesk-DB errors).

    Hi Martin,

    What I did was the easy way. I created a backup server that did incremental backups every night with a full back up every Saturday. This way I had two weeks of backups and then it would dump the backups and start again. This way you can bring down a server and upgrade it if you needed.
