若要计划数据备份:

  1. Go to Tools & Settings > Backup Manager (under “Tools & Resources”) > Schedule.

  2. Keep the “Activate this backup task” checkbox selected and then specify the following:

    • Next to “Run this backup task”, specify when and how often to run the backup.

    • To reduce the disk space usage and the duration of backup process, “Use incremental backup” is selected by default (for details, refer to Incremental Backup).

    • Next to “Perform full backup”, select how often to make full backups. The list of allowed values depends on the time period selected in “Run this backup task”.

    • To make Plesk automatically delete old backups, specify the maximum number of full backup files to store (including both scheduled and manual backups). For details, see Backup Rotation.

    • Next to “Back up”, select what data to back up. You can back up only settings, or settings and user data. To learn what is included in backups, refer to the Backing Up and Restoration section.

    • Next to “Store in”, you can see the local storage path where Plesk stores backups. To configure remote storage, click the corresponding link.

    • If you have configured remote storage, you can split backup files. To do so, select the “Create a multivolume backup, volume size (MB)” checkbox and specify the volume size in megabytes.

    • To exclude all log files from backups (including logs from the system directory), select the “Exclude log files” checkbox.

    • You may also want to exclude some files and directories from backups: for example, temporary file directories or files you do not have access to (to avoid errors). To do so, select the “Exclude specific files from the backup” checkbox and then specify the files and directories you want to exclude.

      Specify the files or directories according to the following rules:

      • 另起一行或使用 “,” 符号隔开文件。

      • “*” 标记可用于替换文件或目录名称中的任何符号,“/” 符号除外。例如: /some/*/logs – 表示 some 目录的某个子目录中的 logs 目录, /some/log* - 表示 some 目录中以 log 开头的文件和目录, */logs – 表示订阅根目录的某个子目录中的 logs 目录。

      • “**” 标记可用于替换多个重复的符号或目录。例如: **/logs - 表示订阅根目录中一序列子目录中的日志目录。

      • 目录路径不得等同于 “.” 或 “..” 且不得包含如 “t”、“n” 之类的特殊字符。

        注解: The “Exclude log files” and the “Exclude specific files from the backup” checkboxes are available only if you have selected “User files and databases”.

      • To receive email notifications when something goes wrong during backing up, select the “If errors occur during the execution of this backup task, send a notification email to” checkbox. Plesk suggests the email address specified in your profile. If necessary change the email address to another one.
