PSADUmp says 'Maximum File Size Reached' and bombs. I can't backup!

    I went to do a PSADump last night so I have a full backup on hand, and after three hours it bombed with the message "Maximum file size reached". When I looked at the file it was 2.0g.

    How do I do a full backup now? Is there an updated PSADump or another method I can use?

    I normally use this syntax: psadump -F -z -f /backups

    I am running Plesk Relaoded for Linux v7.5.3 but don't want to upgrade without a backing up first.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    why dont you split the files?

    psadump -F - | split -b1000m - /backups/NAME -z -f

    That should make you get rid of the max file limit error.

    read the manual for further information on splitting and restoring from splited backups.
