Plesk backup mainly stop working because of space issue.

You will get error says “plesk backup no space left on device” or

“ERROR: Zend_Db_Statement_Exception: SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 1030 Got error 28 from storage engine (Pdo.php:234)”

This happens when Plesk backup fills / partition with temporary backup files. Solution is to mount the Plesk backup folder /var/tempfiles/pmm_tmp and /var/tempfiles/tmp to some other temprary directory. Mostly Plesk servers comes with more space on /var

First stop plesk

/etc/init.d/psa stop

Create new temporary directory for pmm_tmp folder

mkdir -p /path to new location/pmm_tmp

Create new temporary directory for tmp folder

mkdir -p /path to new location/tmp

Correct ownership for new locations pmm_tmp

chown -R user.user /path to new location/pmm_tmp

Correct ownership for new locations tmp

chown -R user.user /path to new location/tmp

Mount /usr/local/psa/PMM/tmp to new temporary location

mount --bind /path to new location/pmm_tmp /usr/local/psa/PMM/tmp

Mount /usr/local/psa/PMM/tmp to new temporary location

mount --bind  /path to new location/tmp /usr/local/psa/tmp

Now start Plesk

 

/etc/init.d/psa start

Now you need to add entry for temporary folder in fstab to mount it permanently /etc/fstab

/New/Location  /usr/local/psa/PMM/tmp none bind
/New/Location  /usr/local/psa/tmp none bind
