Purposes of site snapshot in Web Presence Builder

While working on the content and design of a website, you can save several copies of each site to the server and restore sites from the saved copies (also referred to as snapshots). Saving site copies can be useful in the following cases:

  • You want to prepare several versions of the same website so that you can later load them for review, choose the best-designed or the most appropriate version, and publish it to the Internet.

  • You want to make significant changes to or experiment with the site's design or content with the option to safely undo the changes, should anything go wrong.

Web Presence Builder application for Parallels Plesk Panel (PP) versions 10.x and 11.x

The best way to back up and restore a site created with Web Presence Builder is to dump and restore the whole domain with Plesk Backup Manager.

Additionally, a site snapshot may be created and restored with the command line utility bru.php.

Using the following command, you may create a snapshot of the site with <uuid>:

  • For Linux:

    /usr/local/psa/bin/sw-engine-pleskrun /usr/local/sb/utils/bru.php --backup --target=site --uuid=<uuid> --file=file.zip
    
  • For Windows:

    "C:\Program Files\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin\php.exe" -c "C:\Program Files\Parallels\Plesk\admin\php.ini" -dauto_prepend_file="" "C:\Program Files\Parallels\Plesk\Sitebuilder5\utils\bru.php" --backup --target=site --uuid=<uuid> --file=file.zip
    

Here are the commands to restore the snapshot:

  • For Linux:

    /usr/local/psa/bin/sw-engine-pleskrun /usr/local/sb/utils/bru.php --restore --target=site --uuid=<uuid> --file=file.zip
    
  • For Windows:

    "C:\Program Files\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin\php.exe" -c "C:\Program Files\Parallels\Plesk\admin\php.ini" -dauto_prepend_file="" "C:\Program Files\Parallels\Plesk\Sitebuilder5\utils\bru.php" --restore --target=site --uuid=<uuid> --file=file.zip
    

NOTE: In both Linux and Windows, a site's uuid is stored in the table dom_param of the Parallels Plesk Panel database. Execute the following query to get a site's uuid with the name of the PP domain:

mysql> select domains.name as 'domain', dom_param.val as 'site uuid' from domains, dom_param where domains.id=dom_param.dom_id and dom_param.param='site_builder_site_id';
+------------------------------+--------------------------------------+
| domain                       | site uuid                            |
+------------------------------+--------------------------------------+
| plesk10.domain.tld           | 375c7bff-5f73-4437-5fa4-2c0aa7179c39 |
....

The following command will show you the help

/usr/local/psa/bin/sw-engine-pleskrun /usr/local/sb/utils/bru.php help

Web Presence Builder Standalone versions 10.x, 11.x

Use the same method with bru.php from the previous chapter with specifying /usr/bin/sw-engine instead of sw-engine-pleskrun

Parallels Automation for Web Presence versions 10.x and 11.x (APS package Web Presence Builder)

A site snapshot may be created and restored through GUI only. The utility bru.php is not tested for APS package Web Presence Builder versions 10 and 11.
