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.
