Domains backup is included into server-wide backup while backup task for all domains is disabled

Applicable to:

  • Plesk 12.5 for Linux

Symptoms

There is a backup files for each individual domain despite the fact that individual backup has been disabled in Domains > Backup manager > Activate this backup task is unchecked .

Cause

Server-wide backup that is enabled in Tools and Settings > Backup Manager will still include domain's backups, unless there is a setting to backup only server configuration without content. If it is server configuration with content selected globally in Tools and Settings > Backup Manager , then all domains content will be included into the backup, as a result, each domain will have a separate backup folder in the server-wide backup location.

More details are available in Plesk Administrator Guide :

The backup settings in Domains > Backup manager allow Plesk customers to backup website content and configuration when required. Visit Plesk Administrator Guide for more details.

Resolution

To exclude individual domains content from server-wide backup, generate backup of only server configuration:

Tools and Settings > Backup Manager > Backup > mark Server Configuration

If server-wide backup created in ools and Settings > Backup Manager > Backup is included into disk space of a domain and is visible in Domains > example.com > Backup Manager , it is possible to exclude it from subscription's disk space.
