How to create hourly backups in Plesk?
Connect to the Plesk server via SSH.
Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Schedule to set up server-wide backups
Domains > example.com > Backup & Restore > Schedule to set up subscription backups
Note: By default, only Plesk administrators can set up hourly backup tasks. To allow resellers and customers create them, go to Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Settings and tick the option Allow customer and reseller accounts to schedule hourly backups.
Note: Hourly backups feature was introduced in Plesk Obsidian 18.0.55. If your Plesk Obsidian version is 18.0.55 or later, but the feature is absent, enable it in Plesk:
Install Panel.ini Editor from the Extensions menu.
Open Panel.ini Editor extension and switch to the Editor tab.
Add the configuration below:
allowHourlyTask = on
Warning: If you have manually created tasks for hourly backups previously, it is recommended to remove them and switch to the embedded UI function.
