(Advanced) Backing Up and Recovering Websites

Plesk provides the backing up and restoration facilities that you can use to prevent the loss of your data.

During the backup operation, Plesk saves your account settings and websites' content into a number of files. You can create a number of backups and restore any of them at any time later.

This chapter describes how to perform the following operations in Plesk:

  • Backing up all data related to your account and sites. Learn more in the section Backing Up Account and Websites.
  • Scheduling backups. Learn more in the section Scheduling Backups.
  • Restoring data from backup archives. Learn more in the section Restoring Data.
