How to restore domain’s backup files created on local repository on one server that were uploaded to another server?
It is not possible to upload a backup in Plesk UI in Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Upload because .tar file is missing.
– 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.
Connect to the server via SSH.
Create a backup directory for the domain, for example:
# mkdir -f /var/lib/psa/dumps/domains/example.com
Upload the backup files to the domain backup directory
/var/lib/psa/dumps/domains/example.com.This will allow the backup to appear in Plesk UI.
For example, if backup files are located in
/root/backupdirectory, it is required to move them under a domain’s backup directory:
# mv /root/backup /var/lib/psa/dumps/domains/example.com
Go to Plesk > Domains > example.com > Backup Manager and restore the backup.
Warning: A backup will not be added to Plesk Backup Manager if .discovered hidden directory is missing. In this case, restore the backup using the command line.
