Using "--nostop-domain" with psadump - will databases be corrupted?

    I'd like to use --nostop-domain with my psadump, since there's no risk of Plesk users logging in while the process is being run.

    Can the mySQL databases be corrupted during this process (in the dump file, that is), or does psadump do a good "snapshot" of the database during the backup process?

    Its better to just let PSAdump stop it when it dumps. It only takes mysql down for a few seconds on my servers. I don't see the point in doing a -nostop since apache is stopped while the sites are dumped so everything is unreachable anyway..

    Apache isn't stopped if you use --nostop and --nostop-domain. If you're concerned you may like to use just --nostop but not --nostop-domain as that will disable that particular domain when it gets to it so there should be no MySQL queries.
