[edit] How-to backup my plesk ?

[edit] Before you start

You need your primary server (wich had Plesk installed and running). We call it "ServerA".

You need a second server, where you send your backup file. We call it "ServerB".

I think it's a good idea to use an encrypted connection, like TLS, between your two server. ServerB need a ftp deamon wich support TLS.

Create "/var/backup/" directory on ServerA and ServerB.

Install "lftp" on ServerA.

On Fedora Core :

yum install lftp

On Debian :

aptitude install lftp

[edit] Script on ServerA

Create this script :

vi /path/to/your/script
# Format date YYYY-MM-DD-HH-MM
date=`/bin/date +%F-%R`
# Create plesk backup
/usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup all /var/backup/fullbackup-$date.bak
# Connect to FTP, change directory, send files, disconect.
lftp -u login,password ftp.serverb.com <<EOF
cd /
lcd /var/backup/
mirror -R
quit 0
chmod +x /path/to/your/script
crontab -e
15    23    *    *     *    /path/to/your/script

[edit] Verify on ServerB

tail -f /var/log/messages

[edit] Notes

This script send all files on /var/backup/

Need improvement.
