    I am trying to backup my configuration of Plesk 7.5.0 on fedora core 2. Last time I tried updating my server, apache wouldnt start. So I will play it safe this time, since I had it re-imaged, and try to backup everything.

    I logged in as root and try psadump -f /root/psa_backup/backupnew

    I get -bash: psadump: command not found

    I try man psadump and get entry for this not found.

    I thought psadump comes with Plesk 7.5.0?

    Any help ?

    /usr/local/psa/bin/psadump -f /root/psa_backup/backupnew

    Great thanx

    Server backup is successfully completed

    Now my next question is:

    I ran

    /usr/local/psa/bin/psadump -F -f /root/psa/psa_backup/backupnew

    Now If I upgrade from 7.5.0 Plesk to 7.5.3 and run whatever Plesk updater has for updates, and If I have a problem and need to restore to the backup I just created, Will I get get Plesk 7.5.0 back and everything else prior to the backup?

    If I upgrade PHP from 4.3.4 to 4.3.11 and have a problem, can I use psarestore to revert back to 4.3.4 ?

    Yep, you'll get everything back. And you should have no problem stepping up to PHP 4.3.11.

    What you may wish to do is use ART's yum to upgrade Plesk. He makes things easy.

    How do I setup my current yum to point to Arts ?
