Download the UrBackup Server source package. There are two possibilities. Either you download the normal package which uses Python to display graphs, or you download the one which uses google chart. Google chart only works if the computer you'll access the server's web interface with has an internet connection.
Using the google chart one is strongly recommended as it has fewer dependencies and thus is easier to compile and install.
Extract the archive (tar xzf [filename]) and navigate into the newly created folder.
Run ./configure and make.
Run sudo make install. One binary, several libraries and one script will be installed. You can use the script to start UrBackup server. It is called start_urbackup_server
Add UrBackup to the system startup. There is no easy, distribution unified way to do this. Thus the make install
does not do it for you. An init script for Debian is already included. You can install it via:
cp init.d /etc/init.d/urbackup_srv
update-rc.d urbackup_srv defaults 90
If your distribution is not Debian or Debian based (Ubuntu, Nexenta, ...) you have to either build your own init script or just put start_urbackup_server
into your rc.local
does not work maybe the paths in there are off. Then you have to take a look where make install
installed all the files and modifiy start_urbackup_server
If you build an init script it would be highly appreciated if you send it to me, so that others can profit from your work. Packages for other distributions would be appreciated as well.
