Backup / restore problem with Typo3

My website handled by Typo3 (4.1.2) is hosted on a Suse 10.2 server with Plesk 8.2. In order to test my config, I tried to make a complet backup / restore process (at the OS level) for all my datas (files, website cinfig and database).

Plesk is providing such tools (plesbackup and pleskrestore) it save and restore everything.

Backup and restore were done and everything seems to be ok. Direcories, datas and using phpmyadmin, I can see database is ok.

... unfortunately, the website is not working:

1. in BE, the list of the installed extensions is not up to date
2. all the pictures inserted in webpages are displayed in their big size (however, I defined a smaller width)
3. I can see in file error_log entries saying that some PHP files cannot be found (especially for real URL) but all these files exist

I realy don't understand why I get such situation. Is that access rights related probleem? Something already known?

Thank you in advance for your help.

The image problem suggests it's not seeing your image package - imagemagick, gd etc which will be resizing down to the smaller versions.

Are you sure all of the files were backed up ok - was it a permission problem with failing to backup all files, rather than seeing them now. The smaller versions of images will be in /uploads if memory serves, are all of these still there?

The extension lists and other bits and bobs will probably be stored in typo3conf/localconf.php. In that same folder try deleting the temp_CACHED_.... files and clearing your backend caches as well.
