4PSA – tbrestore from Total Backup for Plesk- phew


I bought the 4PSA Total Backup for Plesk some time ago for my Plesk server. Of course, 1 week before I was due to retire the server, it crashed. I had to reimage, and then came the nail biting task of restoring it.
But I had a few errors, I installed the correct version of Total Backup, but when I ran


I got the error


Error! Cannot cd to directory

‘Crap!’ I thought to myself. Googling didn’t help, nor did the 4PSA forums. Turns out the fix was that I had to specify a local backup directory through the Plesk control panel, for tbrestore to work.

It’s running now, it’s a slow, nail biting experience …..
