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.

--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

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.

In order to further improve IEEE Final Year Project Domains practices we need to explicitly describe and utilise our knowledge about software domains of software engineering Final Year Project Domains for CSE technologies. This paper suggests a modelling formalism for supporting systematic reuse of software engineering technologies during planning of software projects and improvement programmes in Final Year Projects for CSE.
