Downloading Database Backup Files (Windows)

Starting from Plesk 12.5, the database backup storage is available only if you had created database backups in earlier Plesk versions. You can only remove or download your backups. To back up databases, use the export and import operations in Websites & Domains > Databases.

To download a backup file from backup storage:

  1. Go to Websites & Domains > Backup Manager > More Actions > Database Backup Repository.
  2. In the Database menu, select the database whose backup files you want to browse. Leave All domain databases selected if you want to browse backup files of all databases on a domain.
  3. Click the icon corresponding to the database backup file you want to download.
  4. Select the location where you want to save the backup file and click Save.

The backup file will be downloaded from the backup storage.

To remove a backup file from backup storage:

  1. Go to Websites & Domains > Backup Manager > More Actions > Database Backup Repository.
  2. In the Database menu, select the database whose backup files you want to remove. Leave All domain databases selected if you want to browse backup files of all databases on a domain.
  3. Select a checkbox corresponding to the database backup file you want to remove. Click Remove, confirm removal and click OK.
