How do I backup my account (Plesk) Print

  • 19

To create a backup login to plesk:
Home -> (Top Row) Backup Icon (you may have to scroll to the right) -> Create Backup Icon

There are 3 options you can choose here:
create backup file and store in repository
do not store backup file in repository, only download it
create the backup file and store on FTP server

Most likely you are going to want to use the last 2 options:
The first will give you a file to download when it finishes.
The second will create the file and then put it on the ftp server of your choosing (you have to supply the login info)

NOTE: The "Backup file name" part MUST be filled out no matter what option you choose.

We strongly suggest using the "Suspend Domain" option as that will prevent changes from being made to your databases while the backup is generated, although this is not required.

Once you have your options selected just click the "Back Up" button at the bottom of the page.
