psadump not working without postgres?

    I have a standard plesk license with no postgres support. When I try to run psadump it stops because it says postgres is not configured. Can anyone tell me how to get around this so I can back up my server?

    Here's exactly what the script says from start to finish:

    [root@srv1 bin]# ./psadump -f /home/root/systembackup/ -z --nostop --nostop-domain


    Attempt to connect to MySQL server ... done



    Checking packages installation ... done
    Postgres is not configured (unable to define pg admin login and password).
    Requested method is not supported or the file '/home/root/systembackup/' corrupted

    Any ideas at all here? Backup is a very basic function, this should work.

    Or can anyone tell me the most complete way to back everything up manually if I can't use the psadump script?

    This the command I use without problem:

    ./psadump -F -f /home/backup/$(date +%F) -z

    If it doesn't find PostGRES it will just skip it.

    AFAIK, the ROOT homedir is not in /home but /, make sure your path is to its destination is correct.
