Package Plesk Backup from the Command Line

If you are unable to package plesk backup from plesk panel then I suggest you manually package the backup from the
command line using "%plesk_bin%\pmm-ras.exe". That is the utility that Plesk
uses internally to package backups for download. Below is the tool's usage
report followed by an example:

--get-dump-list Get local repository files list. Available options --type,
--guid, --id.

--get-ftp-dump-list Get ftp repository files list. Avaiilable option --mask.

--get-dump-info Get local backup info. Available options
--dump-file-specification, --dump-storage, --check-sign.

--get-ftp-dump-info Get ftp backup info. Available option --dump-storage,

--import-file-as-dump Import dump to file. Available options
--dump-file-specification, --dump-storage.

--delete-dump Delete dump. Available options --dump-specification,

--delete-exported-dump Delete exported dump. Available options
--dump-file-specification, --dump-storage.

--get-dumps-storage-credentials Get dump storage credentials. Use
--storage-type to specify storage type.

--rotate-dump Rotate dump. Available options --dump-specification,
--dump-rotation, --guid, --storage-structured, --dump-storage.

--get-domain-dumps-disc-usage Get domain dumps disk usage. Available options
--domain-guid, --owner-guid.

--export-file-as-file Export already exported dump (even splitted) to one
file. Available options --dump-specification, --dump-file-specification.

by any means (FTP, RDP, etc.) and then either upload it to the Plesk interface
or manually extract it to the Plesk backup directory.
