Define the way how the backup process will be performed includes the following:
Defining level of backup verbosity
Verbose mode of backup process is defined by the
-v option. The option behavior differs on Linux/Unix and Windows systems.
On Linux/Unix, the level of backup process verbosity is defined by a number of the
-v options used in the backup command. Depending on the number of used -v options, we distinguish the following three levels:
09:18:40 INFO Create backup task description).
pleskbackup outputs information on its execution to
stdout only. If you want to have the backup log saved, redirect the utility output to a file with standard command line means.
To run a task on creating a complete server backup with maximum level of verbosity:
pleskbackup --server -vvvvv
On Windows, only two verbosity levels are supported, depending on whether the -v option is used in the backup command or not:
In case your backup is going to include domains, it is recommended to use the
--suspend option to suspend the domains during the backup process. Doing this ensures from errors in backup files that may be caused by changes done to the domain configuration and/or content during the backup.
The suspension is made up to be as short as possible: each domain is suspended only for the time it is being backed up, the domain is started automatically as soon as the domain data is processed.
