Restoring Backups

If your data is corrupted or lost, you can restore it from a backup file. This topic explains how to restore data from a backup in Plesk.

When restoring from a backup file, you can restore all data contained in the backup, or select individual objects to be restored (for example, a particular site, all databases, and so on).

You can restore backups made in Plesk 8.6 and later. Starting with Plesk Onyx Preview 9, it is not possible to restore backups made in Plesk 11.x or older.

Caution: When you restore objects from a backup, they overwrite and replace existing objects with the same name. You will not be prompted when an object being restored is about to overwrite an existing one. You will lose all changes to objects being restored that were made after the backup was created.
