SCGI on Backuppc - help set up

I have installed BackupPC-4.0.0alpha3 on my debian (jessie) system.  I believe that it is set up correctly as when I run the command:  "/etc/init.d/backuppc start" I get a backuppc starting message and then an ok.  I am now trying to set up the SCGI Apache interface but am not quite sure specifically what to do.  What I have done so far is to install the Apache SCGI module "libapache2-mod-scgi".  Then I enabled the module using a2enmod so it now shows up in the mods-enabled directory.  What I don't understand is what to do next.  I expect that I have to make some change or changes to the config.pl file of Backuppc, however, I am unclear of what those changes are.  Does a change need to be made to the below section and if so what change?  What information goes into the $Conf{CgiURL} = section and where would I get that information.  Also are there any other changes that I need to make?  Thanks in advance.    akibuflash

$Conf{SCGIServerPort} = 10268; # Full URL of the BackupPC_Admin CGI script, or the configured path # for SCGI. Used for links in email messages. $Conf{CgiURL} = '';

Anyone have a copy of BackupPC_DeleteFile.pl?

When I searched for BackupPC_DeleteFile.pl it appears
that the only place it was posted was on the wiki
for BackupPC.  And the URL is no longer valid.

Can someone shoot me a copy of the file or, even
better, make it available on the Internet?

Thanks!

R: Re: Issue with backup

Hi Les,

thank you very much for your reply.
Yes, there is a firewall between BackupPC and this specific server, so they 
can't ping each other.
This situation is very common on my network environment.
I'll investigate about a possible fw issue.

FreeBSD backups?

Hey,

Looking for best practice here. I have converted my workstation from Debian to PCBSD. So I'm looking for ideas on what to back up. Since the system and the userspace are separate, would it be prudent to back up /home and /usr/local (plus the usual suspects like /etc)?

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

BackupPC_nightly slow 100% cpu

I'm struggling with the performance of BackupPC_nightly.

The system is FreeBSD 10.0 running BackupPC on a zfs pool with 109Tb of 
space across 30 disks. The system has 128Gb of ram and dedicated ssds 
for zfs intent log and L2ARC. Performance is generally good, as expected 
for this hardware.

 From BackupPC cgi:

There are 53 hosts that have been backed up, for a total of:

368 full backups of total size 111871.28GB (prior to pooling and 
compression),
265 incr backups of total size 3520.74GB (prior to pooling and compression).

This is consuming about 19.4 Tb on the zfs pool.

What I see is that BackupPC_nightly runs sometimes for hours or days and 
with 100% CPU consumption. A simple "find pool/ -links 1" also runs a 
long time, but top shows it spending nearly all it's time in zio (disk) 
routines, not in cpu. I would expect walking the backuppc pool to 
involve mostly disk io with relatively little cpu, which makes me 
question BackupPC_nightly spending it's time in cpu.

I currently have:
MaxBackupPCNightlyJobs = 4
BackupPCNightlyPeriod = 8

I wonder if there is something about having such a large pool that's 
causing BackupPC_nightly to get stuck at 100% cpu? Maybe the number of 
files in it's working batch is too big?

Thanks
Russ Poyner

BackupPC on Nginx - help, it is killing me!

I have been trying to set it up since two months, but every time I solve one problem, I get into another one.

I am running Arch linux with latest Nginx. 

When I login in into BPC web interface, I get

Error&#58; Unable to read config.pl or language strings!!

Note&#58; $ENV&#123;REMOTE_USER&#125; is not set, which could mean there is an installation problem.
BackupPC_Admin expects Apache to authenticate the user and pass their user name into this script as the
REMOTE_USER environment variable. See the documentation. 
The only solutions I found online were related to Apache, so useless to me.

Can anyone help me here?

Backuppc rsyncd vor windows --> is there a good client?

Hello,

we use Backuppc with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. We backup Linux and Windowsshares. On Linux we use rsync and never had
problems with. On windows in the past we used SMB, but we hat a lot of login and permission problems, so we
changed to rsyncd (Delta Copy). That works for an half an year, but also problems with filepermissions on
recovery. Recoverd files had permissions 000. So we was not able to recover files directly. This time on
some Servers deltacopy does not work anymore. There are timeouts, no error messages. 

So we need an solution. Is there anoter rsyncclient/daemon for windows, or an sshserver for windows. We
have done this with cygwin fine, but only on servers with no domain. But we have an every server the
windowsdomain, so we were not able to fix this with cygwin on windowsdomain. 

Thanks for help
Best Regards

BackupPC-4.0.0alpha3 - Can't create a test hardlink between a file...

I am having a bit of a problem starting  BackupPC-4.0.0alpha3 on my debian (jessie) system.  When I run the command:  "/etc/init.d/backuppc start" as user backuppc or as root, I get the following output:

"Starting backuppc: 2015-01-28 17:12:12 Can't create a test hardlink between a file in /data/BackupPC/pc and /data/BackupPC/cpool.  Either these are different file systems, or this file system doesn't support hardlinks, or these directories don't exist, or there is a permissions problem, or the file system is out of inodes or full.  Use df, df -i, and ls -ld to check each of these possibilities. Quitting..."

They are not different file systems they are ext4; the directories do exist and the permissions appear to be correct (755).  Additionally, the filesystem is not out of inodes and is not full.  Here are some outputs:

Any suggestions as to what the problem is?  It is probably something simple but I am not that well versed on debian (or any other flavor for that matter).  Thanks.

btw, when I run the start command "/etc/init.d/backuppc start" as another user, I get the following output:

"Starting backuppc: /etc/init.d/backuppc: 37: /etc/init.d/backuppc: start-stop-daemon: not found"

Exclude directory having no effect

I'm backing up a host samba, which has a directory I want to exclude named " <at> Recycle".  Adding a global or host exclusion doesn't seem to cause BackupPC to skip the directory.  I've tried substituting a wildcard for the <at> symbol, and reversing forward vs. backslashes, to no avail.  I'd appreciate any suggestions.
