how to extract files from plesk backup??
i have my site backup and i want to extract its file on my desktop
i try and try but with no benefit
so please can some one tell me what can i do?
Which platform was plesk running on? Windows or linux?
The compression is different and from my experience, if on windows, you may not be able to.
I'm not sure but I think you can extract this plesk backup file through winzip or winrar in windows environment.
thanks for reply
plesk run on linux
See if you can extract the content using 7-zip (it's free):
http://www.7-zip.org/. I believe it is quite versatile.

As far as I know the file will only work on Plesk. It can't be unpacked with any other system. If you're looking to backup your files for for download to your PC you can do it with a simple cron:
What you can even do is dump your MySQL databases via cron first and then when you tar your home directory it will include database backup sql files.
/bin/nice -n 19 /bin/tar -czvf /path/to/domain.com/backup.tgz /path/to/domain.com/*
Your host might like you very much if your database is over 1GB in size as it will cause load. But for smaller sites it's a nice end user solution.
/usr/bin/mysqldump --opt --host=localhost --user=[db user] --password=[db pass] [db name] > /path/to/domain.com/whatever.sql
Then just bookmark the backup.tgz and download it via your browser after it runs or once a week or whatever. I used to do this on our main sites as an extra security measure (too big now).

you can extract the plesk backup files easily, Check Plesk KB for for more help in this regard.
I believe if this file is a TGZ(Tar G-Zipped) file then you can unpack it with WinRar. then search through the directories for the files you need.
thanks to every one
i had the backup file already on my laptop
but it doesnt extract by any method
you can unpack it by 7zip
The people posting here (all except for NexDog and mioot) have no idea what they're talking about and have obviously never used Plesk. Plesk backups are proprietary and there's no possible way to extract them (at least properly) on your computer. You'll need to either run the commands NexDog posted on your Plesk backup file or restore the settings on another Plesk provider.
