Backing Up and Restoring Websites

To help prevent data loss, Plesk can back up your data, such as websites' content, databases, or emails, to a file. Should your data become corrupted or lost, you can restore it from a backup file. This topic explains how to back up and restore your websites in Plesk.

You can back up manually at any time. You can also configure a scheduled backup that will be created automatically and periodically. To ensure the safety of your websites’ data, we recommend configuring a scheduled backup.

You can create any number of backups in Plesk. However, the disk space taken up by backups stored on the Plesk server counts against your total disk quota. To avoid running out of disk space, you can remove outdated backups, configure remote storage, or download backups to your computer.
