    What format is the Plesk backup file? It doesn't have an extension. I am just trying to automate file backup for a sinlge domain, but the file is huge (130 MB). What is in that file? It appears to be binary.

    Sorry for the n00b question, but boy howdy are those docs tough to parse.

    It is gzip compressed data, you can use -z option while backup (from command line), in this case you will have the xml file with data.
