This article will provide an overview of the process to restore from a backup of your website via Plesk Onyx. Especially when undertaking changes to your website, ensuring you have a backup of your site is very important. This also provides you the opportunity to keep a historical copy of your site for future reference.

Note: While Conetix maintains backups of your website, we do so for disaster recovery purposes only. A full outline of our backup procedures is available here.


  1. Navigate to the Backup Manager under your Plesk subscription:

  4. If available, select the sites, databases or mail accounts you want the restore and move them to the right hand box.
