This chapter describes how to back up and restore data by means of the command-line utilities pleskbackup and pleskrestore, and introduces the tools for migrating hosted data between servers.

Backing up by means of the pleskbackup utility is done by issuing a command that specifies the objects to be backed up. The utility creates a backup archive containing settings and content. You can then perform a full or a selective restoration of data, and specify how to resolve possible conflicts that might occur.

Note: It is also possible to backup and restore data via Plesk user interface. For details, refer to Administrator’s Guide.
