Hi, I am trying to install BackupPC-3.3.1 (the latest, AFAIK) on a Synology NAS.
Obviously I have no way to use pre-packaged distributions and thus I resorted to install from .tar

I installed using:

==================================================
#!/bin/bash

user=backuppc
home=/opt/backuppc
pdir=$home/BackupPC
ddir=$home/data

cd BackupPC-3.3.1

perl configure.pl --batch --backuppc-user=$user --compress-level=3 --config-dir $pdir/conf \
                   --cgi-dir $pdir/cgi-bin --data-dir $ddir --no-fhs \
                   --hostname syno0 --html-dir $pdir/images --html-dir-url /images \
                   --install-dir $pdir --log-dir $pdir/log --uid-ignore
==================================================

User backuppc exists and its HOME dir is /opt/backuppc.
/opt/backuppc is a mount point for a ext4 filesystem (actually mounted "-o bind", if it matters).

Problem with tar backup

Hi,

I'm trying to do a tar backup of a pfsense machine, but I'm getting an 
error:

     Got fatal error during xfer (No files dumped for share /cf/conf)

However tarExtract says everything is fine:

     tarExtract: Done: 0 errors, 32 filesExist, 487438 sizeExist, 196984 
sizeExistComp, 32 filesTotal, 487438 sizeTotal

I've also found out where the problem is. In Xfer/Tar.pm there is code 
counting the files tarred on the remote host:

         } elsif ( /^\./ ) {
             $t->{XferLOG}->write(\"$_\n") if ( $t->{logLevel} >= 
$logFileThres );
             $t->{fileCnt}++;
         } else {

However, the machine I'm backing up is a pfsense machine which is based 
on FreeBSD, and tar outputs "a ./theaddedfile.txt" instead of simply 
"./theaddedfile.txt", which causes the above line not to match. I've 
replaced it in my BackupPC install with:

         } elsif ( /^(a )?\./ ) {
             $t->{XferLOG}->write(\"$_\n") if ( $t->{logLevel} >= 
$logFileThres );
             $t->{fileCnt}++;

2016-era best practices for macs

Hi all,

It's been a while since I followed BackupPC closely, although I have 
been using it to back up linux clients for at least 10 years.

I'd like to start backing up a mac, and I'm concerned about resource 
forks.  I realize that resource forks aren't as big a deal as they used 
to be, but a quick find showed several existing files with resource 
forks, and I certainly want my backup solution to be fire-and-forget.

I recall many years ago, there was someone who backed up tons of macs 
using backuppc with "XTar" as the transport - it's a tar that supports 
resource forks somehow.  Xtar still is available for download, but it 
hasn't been updated since 2004.

Similarly, there's old discussion out there about hfstar, a set of 
patches to gnu tar.  Also hasn't been updated in forever.

The backuppc docs note in passing that tar works, but I wonder if there 
are caveats - e.g., does my pool filesystem need to support extended 
attributes natively?  It seems like modern rsync's -X option will 
transfer the xattr's but expects the remote filesystem to support them 
(seems reasonable).

So - any current best practices?   Can backuppc run rsync "natively" 
somehow, that is, without File::RsyncP but rather by calling rsync on 
the server?

thanks
danno

R: Keep getting "Aborting backup up after signal PIPE"

Hi,
I suspect that this could happens when there are lots of file to be saved.
In my case, if I run backuppc manually through CLI (with -v option), I noticed 
failures in folder with lots of email:

BackupPC Aborts Backup at 8GB on F23

I have just upgraded, to Fedora 23, a CentOS 6.7 system that had been 
reliably running BackupPC to back up a Windows 7 system via SMB for 
several years. All BackupPC config files were restored from backup.

After the F23 upgrade, which also included an upgrade of BackupPC to 
version 3.3.1, backups now always abort at about the 8GB mark, with 
something like this in the error log:

2016-02-28 14:00:02 Started incr backup on pelican (pid=325, share=C$)
2016-02-28 14:18:37 Backup failed on pelican (tar:712  Total bytes 
received: 8287158228)

Actual byte count varies a bit from one failed backup to the next, but 
is always around the 8GB mark.

Anyone have suggestions on fixes here? Thanks.

Warnings in Log Since F23/3.3.1 Upgrades

Just upgraded my CentOS 6.7 system running BackupPC to Fedora 23. Along 
with that upgrade came BackupPC 3.3.1 (specifically, 
BackupPC-3.3.1-2.fc23.x86_64).

Since the upgrades, the BackupPC log file is showing (apparently 
non-fatal) errors:

ftp auth using sftp

Hi everyone,

I have set up my backuppc site and it working like a charm :-)

One site I am backing up is connected using ftp. It is working but auth 
and transfer is insecure (not encrypted). The server provides sftp and I 
want to use it. The question not is now to configure backuppc to use 
sftp instead of ftp ? I did not find a custom command for ftp. Can I use 
"rsync"-xfer and change all commands to fit sftp?

Anyone ever did this?

Thanks & best regards

Martin
