How to find & change default backup server path on Plesk 12/Onyx


Configuring the parent directory is located at /etc/psa/psa.conf and is set by DUMP_D.

# cat /etc/psa/psa.conf | grep -w DUMP_D
DUMP_D /var/lib/psa/dumps

To change the default backup server path, follow these steps:

Step 1: Create a folder that containing the backup:

mkdir /plesk_backups

Step 2: Open the /etc/psa/psa.conf file

Change the value of DUMP_D created at step 1 /plesk_backups to

DUMP_D /plesk_backups

Step 3: Permissions for /plesk_backups:

chown username.username /plesk_backups

Step 4: Restart sw-cp-server service

/etc/init.d/sw-cp-server restart

Now configure the backup path to be stored in the /plesk_backup directory

Good luck!
