The following procedure makes a complete backup of Plesk. The backup includes the domain and account structures, domain names, e-mail accounts. The backup DOES NOT include the contents such as websites and e-mail contents.
# mkdir /home/backup
# /usr/local/psa/bin_uk/psadump -F -f /backup/
"Server backup is successfully completed"
/usr/local/psa/bin_uk/psarestore -f psa-7.1.4-p15160828.pureserver.info-20041011.12.archive -m map_ip -s shell_map
The restore backup might fail on the 1st run. The reason for this is Plesk looks for the map_ip and shell_map files
which may not be located, so on the first run it creates the files. If you run the restore command again the
procedure would now start to restore Plesk on the system. If you do not get the following message then run the command
again for the third time;
"Server restoration is completed"
