Create backup

First log in to the Customer Center with your access data and call up the Plesk Control Panel of the affected server.

Backup from the server

Navigate to the menu item Tools & Settings โ†’ Backup Manager and select the Create backup button.

In the next step, you can select which content you want to back up. Then define whether the manual backup should be created completely or incrementally. If you select "Complete", a new backup is created independently of the existing server backups. If you select "Incremental", only the changes since the last full or incremental backup are backed up.

Then click on the "OK" button to start the backup task.

The Plesk backup task requires CPU resources and free disk space, so the performance of the websites hosted on the server may be degraded during execution. Therefore, before starting the backup task, make sure that the server has sufficient CPU and hard disk resources.

As soon as the backup process has been successfully completed, the backup is available for restoration in the global backup manager.
