Restoring Data from Plesk Backup

You can restore data from backup files kept in:

  • The Panel internal repository.
    To restore backup files from Panel repository, choose the backup file name you want to restore on the Account tab > Back Up My Account and Websites > Server Repository tab.
  • An external FTP repository.
    To restore backup files from Panel repository, choose the backup file name you want to restore on the Account tab > Back Up My Account and Websites > Personal FTP Repository tab.

After you choose the backup file, Panel will start the restoration wizard. You will be prompted to specify the following restoration parameters:

  • Types of data to be restored.
    From a full backup (configuration, mail and content) you can choose from
    • Domain configuration
    • Virtual host content
    • Mail
    • Databases
  • Suspend website until restoration task is completed. Select this if you want to avoid possible conflicts that may occur when users modify site content or settings while they are being restored.
  • Send an e-mail notice when restoration task is completed. Type your e-mail address if you want the control panel to notify you when restoring is completed.
  • Conflicts resolution policy. Specify what to do if any conflicts occur during restoration.
  • Backup security settings. If the backup was protected with a password, enter the password into the Password field. Note that Panel is unable to check whether the password you enter is wrong: The backup will be successfully restored but the data will be corrupted.
    If you wish to reset user passwords, clear the Provide the passwords option.

If any errors or conflicts occur during restoration of data, the wizard will prompt you to select an appropriate resolution. Follow the instructions provided on the screen to complete the wizard.
