    pleskdump prints its output to your terminal. When using pleskdump in a cron job for instance you can redirect the output to a log file yourself:

    Code:
    /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup --all $backupfile > $logfile 2>&1

    I've tried running pleskbackup in my terminal specifically to see the output.

    Pleskbackup runs and finishes, but it did not output anything into the terminal!

    What am I supposed to see?

    Also note that I'm running the latest 8.0.1.

    If you're not redirecting output you should see a lot of output about what pleskbackup is doing. What command did you execute exactly?

    That's what I thought too. I'm running:

    /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup --all filename

    PLESKBACKUP_DEBUG=1 /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup ...

    Logs will be in /var/lib/psa/dumps/tmp/ AFAIK

    Hmmmm....

    I tried that too this week, and that folder is still empty.

    Any other ideas?

    I contacted SWsoft support regarding the issue and they refused to offer me any support because I'm licensed through my datacenter.

    I really hope these full server backups are being created correctly...

    I could try a test restore on another server, but I'd need another license for that.

    If anyone has any other ideas, please let me know.


    Regards,

    Limedrink.
