Plesk - How to Backup Databases

 

With Parallels Plesk Panel, you can back up and subsequently restore the databases, database user accounts and data used by domains hosted on your server. You can:

  • Back up your domain databases with all data and user accounts
  • Restore databases from backup files
  • Download, upload and remove database backup files
  • Recover users who became orphaned after the restoration.

To back up a database:

  1. Go to Domains > domain name > Backup Manager -> Database Backup Repository.
  2. Select a check box corresponding to the database you want to back up and click Back Up.
  3. Specify the name of the backup file and click OK.
  4. If you want to download the resulting backup file, click the file name on the next page after the backup process was finished. Specify the location where you want to save the file and click Save.
  5. Click OK.

To back up all databases on a domain:

  1. Go to Domains > domain name > Backup Manager > Database Backup Repository, make sure that All domain repositories is selected in the Database field, and click Back Up.
  2. Specify the name of the backup file and click OK.
  3. If you want to download the resulting backup file, click the file name on the next page after the backup process was finished. Specify the location where you want to save the file and click Save.
  4. Click OK.
