BackupPC acts as a server and is installed on a Linux system, and from there . Documentation contains the whole BackupPC documentation. Adding a CGI Administrator to BackupPC; Modifying the etc. can be found in the BackupPC Documentation: Step 9 CGI Interface.

Many people have reported bugs, made useful suggestions and helped with testing; see the ChangeLog and the mailing lists. These files are compressed and pooled like any normal file. Turn off at your own risk. The backuppc-devel list is only for developers who are working on BackupPC.

BackupPC Documentation

These are set at installation time and are here for reference and are used during upgrades. Some Limitations BackupPC isn’t perfect but it is getting better. Answering questions on the mailing list is a big help too. Several users have reported significantly better performance using reiserfs compared to ext3 for the BackupPC data file system.

Old location of optional configuration settings specific to this host.

Ssh is the preferred method. Next you should decide whether to run tar over ssh, rsh or nfs.


This results in a significant performance improvement. These files are aged monthly. Xavier Nicollet, with additions from Guillaume Filion, added the internationalization i18n support to the CGI interface for v2. Currently ftp restores are not fully implemented.

You need to be running an ftp server on the client machine. All of BackupPC’s data Bacluppc backup images, logs, configuration information is stored below this directory. In this case, rsyncd provides its own authentication, but there is no encryption doxumentation network data.

The backup is done using the specified XferMethod. This might mean one or two extra full dumps are kept until the oldest incremental backups expire.

Full path to the df command. Any old files with the same name will be overwritten, so use caution. So, for example, if two badkuppc files were identical to the first, except the last byte was different, and assuming the file was larger than 1MB so the MD5 digests are the same but the files are actually differentthe three files would be stored as:.

This makes backing up hardlinks accurate, compared to V3, and provides for consistent inode numbering across backups. It does this without needed to write the file to disk.

Output from smbclient, tar or rsync during restore nnn. In addition to total disk space, you should make sure you have plenty of inodes on your BackupPC data partition. GNU tar is required. A checksum for the entire file is sent to as an extra check the the reconstructed file is correct. Finally, direct restore to the client machine using smb or tar for selected files or directories is also supported from the CGI interface.


These packages can be used as complete solutions, or also as back ends to BackupPC to backup the BackupPC server data to tape.

There are several ways you can tell BackupPC the smb share password. Sorry, there is currently no option to documentatipn a restore that has been started.

At some sites the disk-based backup will be adequate, without a secondary offsite cloud, disk or tape backup. When these machines are backed up, only one copy of the file will be stored on the server, even though the file appears in many different full or incremental backups. The -r and -p options can be used to relocate the paths in the zip archive so extracted files can be placed in a location different from their original location. When undefined, the default is seconds. Otherwise, set it to the destintation domain, eg:
