    /var/www/vhosts/domain1.com/folder2/* - only files in folder2 on domain1.com

    /var/www/vhosts/domain2.com/folder2/* - only files in folder2 on domain2.com

    Topic has been updated... "Note: when excluding specific files from Full Server backup all files specified in Exclude specific files from the backup option on all domains will be excluded. It is not possible exclude specific file from specific domain only. Vote to implement features on Plesk User Voice Portal." :-(

    Is it a joke??? Really in 2021 year???

    Maybe you would also say, that i can not exclude domain complete? Like /var/www/vhosts/domain3/* - completely

    If yes i would say big thanks to Plesk! )))

    I hope you notice my sad emoji at the end. I feel the same as you: in 2021, not being able to resolve this issue is very sad.

    How do I exclude a path from the server-side, so that later backups I don't have to add that path to the exclude entry?

    Like Lrnt and Michael M. Im looking for a possibility to exclude whole domains from backup.

    There is a Vote going on, to implement that Feature: https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/35420890-exclude-domains-from-backup-in-ui
