Is there a way to create a backup to an FTP storage without using local storage?
Plesk Onyx and below:
In case of the backup to an FTP storage, Backup Manager requires to use local storage in order to create a backup, it creates an archive and then uploads it to FTP storage.
If full server backup is created (or even incremental), it is going to take a lot of disk space, that server may lack.
This improved in Obsidian, to back up the server to cloud storage, you now need additional free disk space equal to the space occupied by two largest subscriptions, rather than the amount occupied by the entire server.
