You would never believe it, a bug in the Plesk control panel. When trying to backup via the Acronis module in Plesk it backs up about 100MB of data and then stops… however, if you run a full backup from the command line like:
> trueimagecmd –create –partition:1-3 –progress:on –filename:/mnt/backup/root.full.01.06.2009.tib
it works fine.
Turns out it’s a bug in Plesk 9.0, which, is meant to be fixed after Plesk 9.2. The fix can be found at:
Wouldn’t things be boring if they didn’t keep us on our toes like this.
