You can restore data backed up by Plesk 7.5.4 control panel. Before you restore such data, you need to log in as root to your server and run the conversion utility for each backup file created by 7.5.4 as follows:
plesk_installation_directory/bin/backup-convert.py convert -o <new backup file name> <old backup file name>, where <new backup file name> is the path to the new backup file created by the conversion utility, and <old backup file name> is a backup file created by Plesk 7.5.4.
To restore the server configuration and all user data from a backup file:
./pleskrestore --create-map <backup file name> -map <map file name>
If you have a multivolume backup, you should specify the first volume as the <backup file name>.
A mapping file will be generated and saved to the specified location. In most cases you will not need to edit this file: you will need to review its contents and specify mapping for items only if you fail to restore data from a backup due to object conflicts (for example, the range of IP addresses listed in the backup file is different from those available on the server), or if you wish to specify individual objects that should be restored.
./pleskrestore --restore <backup file name> -map <map file name> -level all
where the <backup file name> and <map file name> are the paths to the backup and map files, respectively. If you have a multivolume backup, you should specify the first volume as the <backup file name>. The data will be restored without disruption of hosting services and downtime. The server configuration settings and all user data (including the content of Web sites and messages in mailboxes) will be overwritten.
To restore a user account with domains:
If this account or any of its domains were assigned other IP addresses or database servers than specified in the backup file, you will be prompted to resolve the conflicts by selecting the new IP address and database server to use. Click Next >>.
To restore a domain (Web site):
Restoring will start and its progress will be shown. To update the information on the screen, click Refresh.
