How to restore a Plesk .tar (Plesk for Linux) / .zip (Plesk for Windows Server) backup on another Plesk server?
A Plesk backup can be restored either via Plesk interface or a command-line interface directly on a server.
- A Plesk .tar backup file cannot be restored in Plesk for Windows Server. A Plesk .zip backup file cannot be restored in Plesk for Linux.
- A restoration server must have the same or a higher Plesk version.
- A restoration server must have the same or higher Plesk license edition than the server where the backup has been created.
- The maximum size of an uploaded backup file is limited to 2Gb. If a backup file size is larger than 2Gb, upload this backup file via a command-line interface.
