Some times we have noticed that domain is into suspended status and as we try to activate the domain through plesk control panel suddenly a following error occurs:
“Warning: The domain is still suspended for the following reason: Domain is temporarily suspended for backing up or restoring”
The basic reason for this error to occur is that domain is into backup process and when the backup process was scheduled or started, check box “Suspend domain until backup task is completed” was selected and this settings keeps the domain suspended until the backup process completes.
If you want domain shouldn’t suspended into future to remove these settings, go to
Plesk >> Domains >> Backup Manager >> Scheduled Backup Settings >> Suspend domain until backup task is completed (deselect the check box)
But to activate the current suspended domain see the steps below :
%plesk_bin%\domain.exe --on domain.com
<em>Note: replace domain.com with your actual domain</em>
[root@server ~]# /usr/local/psa/bin/domain -u domain.com -status enabled
Note: replace domain.com with your actual domain.
