Backing Up the Entire Server

To backup the server configuration settings and all user data you have on your hosting machine:

  1. Log in as root to your server.
  2. Change to the directory, where Plesk is installed:

    cd /plesk_installation_directory/bin

  3. Run the following command:

    ./pleskbackup all <filename>

    Where the <filename> is a target backup file name with absolute or relative path. The data will be backed up without disruption of hosting services and downtime. The resulting backup archive will be placed in the directory you specified.
