Cannot edit configuration using the web interface

while working on getting backuppc up and running I've run 
into a major snag. 

I have set the password for the following command:

htpasswd -c /etc/BackupPC/apache.users backuppc

I've also double checked and the backuppc user is indeed in 
/etc/BackupPC/apache.users file as it should be. The config.pl file in 
that same directory is also correct as far as I can tell. The /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file also 
appears to be configured correctly.

Still when I log into the web interface by entering backuppc as the user 
and the password I set using htpasswd I'm not seeing any "Edit Config" 
tab on the left side of the page. I've attached a screen shot so you can 
see what I'm looking at. Any guidance you have to offer here would be 
greatly appreciated.

Thanks

hangs

Hi
 
I have the latest backuppc installed and trying to run the first full backup on few machines.

one machine has 246GB and the backup has been running almost 2 days.

the other machine is 300gb over wifi and after few hours it gets stuck one one file and it doesn’t continue.
the count is stuck at 16600 and it never progresses. I guess it is because the wifi was interrupted at some point and backuppc doesn’t restore the backup process from where it left.

What information do you need to troubleshoot the speed issue and the freezing ?

Kind Regards Chris

Troubles with different encodings of filenames

Good evening,

I'm struggling backing up some windows fileservers.  I'm using DeltaCopy Server v1.3 on Windows Server
2008R2 to share some rsyncd modules which I'm pulling in using BackupPC version 3.2.1 running on Ubuntu 12.04.4LTS.

The web interface transfer errors log shows the filenames in different encoding.
ClientCharset 	(default, nothing filled in)
ClientCharsetLegacy iso-8859-1

Some examples:
(Polish I believe; TęznikA.pdf) error:
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "TeznikA.pdf" (in P2)

(Poznań 017.jpg) error:
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "Poznan 017.jpg" (in Users)

(Russian I believe; GMDAT_Размеры машин.xls) error:
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "Kaliningrad/GMDAT_??????? ?????.xls" (in Users)


Any clue to what I'm doing wrong?

Kind regards, Jürgen

rsync file is vanishing

Hi,

I’m running the latest Cygwin on Windows 2003 Server (rsync 3.0.9) and Ubuntu 14.04 (rsync (3.1.0).

I make a shadow copy of the drive I’m backing up.

I get a lot of ‘vanishing file’ messages from rsync.  Do the version of rsync I’m running still have issues with file names?  This is a sample of the filenames I’m having issues with:


Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/oracle/product/10.2.0/client_1/xdk/include/xmlotn.hpp"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/oracle/product/10.2.0/client_1/xdk/include/xmlproc.h"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/oracle/product/10.2.0/client_1/xdk/include/xmlsch.h"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/oracle/product/10.2.0/client_1/xdk/include/xmlxptr.h"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/oracle/product/10.2.0/client_1/xdk/include/xmlxsl.h"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/oracle/product/10.2.0/client_1/xdk/include/xmlxvm.h"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/oracle/product/10.2.0/client_1/xdk/mesg/lpxus.msb"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/oracle/product/10.2.0/client_1/xdk/mesg/lpxus.msg"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/oracle/product/10.2.0/client_1/xdk/mesg/lsxus.msb"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/oracle/product/10.2.0/client_1/xdk/mesg/lsxus.msg"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/oracle/product/10.2.0/client_1/xdk/readme.html"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/proftpd/proftpd-1.2.10-1.src.rpm"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/proftpd/proftpd-1.3.0a.tar.bz2"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/proftpd/proftpdadmin-1.04.tar.gz"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/svn_backup/Daily/osfiles(10.06.14).tgz"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/svn_backup/Daily/svn(10.06.14).dump"
Remote[2]: file has vanished: "/cygdrive/c/shadow/d/svn_backup/Daily/svn(10.06.14).tgz"

Is it the extra dots or brackets in the file path or name?  If so, how can I get around this?  My clients last backup had 349416 "vanishing" files.

Gerald

BackupPC_zipCreate all shares

Hello there !

I used to use BackupPC_tarCreate tool and to make an archive with all shares of a host, I set "-s \*".

I try this trick with BackupPC_zipCreate but it seems to not to work.

Could someone tell me what is the syntax to use to have all the shares of a host using BackupPC_zipCreate
please ?

Thanks 

Nicolas

Hi....

I have a problem ragrding restoring files, if I try to restore from the browser it times out when it tries to list the files it is over 400000 files in the folder (oden)...

So I'm trying to restore from the command line on the Backuppc host.
It is a windows machine that i have backed up the folder from with smb and i tried both:

/usr/share/backuppc/bin/BackupPC_tarCreate -h oden -n -1 -s folder/ > /restore/restore.tar

and

/usr/share/backuppc/bin/Backuppc_zipCreate -h oden -n -1 -c 3 -s folder / > restore.zip


i tried with different path an slaches to the folder that I read on the net but no luck...

Anyone have a suggestion how to succed to make a restore like this?

Windows 7 client goes to sleep during backup

I'm using a Centos 6 system running BackupPC 3.3.0 to back up a small 
home network of mixed linux and windows PCs.  I recently added a windows 
7 (professional) box and installed cygwin 1.7.29 on it. I'm using rsync 
over an ssh tunnel to back it up.  I've got password-less ssh running, 
and rsync works fine, as long as the machine stays awake.  The problem 
is that windows puts itself to sleep before the backup can complete.

I've got wake-on-lan working, so I can wake the machine up if it starts 
out asleep, and I can run commands on it via ssh, so I can use 
powercfg.exe to (supposedly) set power options.  I have tried creating a 
power scheme on windows that disables sleeping and prevents spinning the 
disks down for long enough to do a back up.  I can use powercfg to 
switch to that power scheme -- I can log in and see the power scheme has 
changed -- but windows still goes back to sleep in a few minutes.

Does anybody know a way of telling windows not to sleep that will work 
if no user is logged in?

Thanks,
Ted

Two things I use for backups of low bandwidth clients is make sure you 
have--one-file-system set to avoid getting more backups than you expect 
and also set rsync --max-size= to limit the size of files. This avoids 
the mistake of leaving a large file (think .iso / .tar.gz) and slowing 
your backups down. Just use this with care for obvious reasons.

Tan,
Thanks for the quick reply but that is not the solution as it is 
perfectly possible to login with ssh so the keys are OK (at least that's 
my conclusion).

Backuppc won't backup a remote system

I have an - I assume simple - problem that I can not solve.
I'm running Backuppc to backup 2 systems at the moment. One, my local 
workstation works without a problem. The other, however, gives the 
following error message:
_______________________________
The following hosts had an error that is probably caused by a 
misconfiguration. Please fix these hosts: - scenic-2 (Unable to read 4 
bytes).
_______________________________
In the status log it says:
_______________________________

full backup started for directory /
Running: /usr/bin/ssh -c blowfish -q -x -l USER SYSTEM sudo -n /usr/bin/rsync --server --sender
--numeric-ids --perms --owner --group -D --links --hard-links --times --block-size=2048
--recursive --inplace --ignore-times . /
Xfer PIDs are now 17987
Read EOF: Connection reset by peer
Tried again: got 0 bytes
Done: 0 files, 0 bytes
Got fatal error during xfer (Unable to read 4 bytes)
Backup aborted (Unable to read 4 bytes)
___________________________________
However, in the log on that system I can see that sshd is started but immediately closed.
Can somebody give me a clue how to solve this?
Thanks in advance,
Joep
