Each node of a path is preceded by “f” mnemonic: These users will not be sent email about this host. This creates additional security risks. If documenation have a pure V4 installation, copying the pool and PC backup directories should be quite easy. In that case, set this to any spare port number over eg: BackupPC supports archiving to removable media. Used for email messages.

Configuring an Archive Host To create an Archive Host, add it to the hosts file just as any other host and call it a name that best describes the type of archive, e. Name to use as the “from” name for email. It maintains queues of pending backup requests, user backup requests and administrative commands. For some sites this might be the complete backup solution. See “Some Limitations” for more information. The configuration parameters are divided into five general groups.


One alternative is to set dhcp to 1 in the hosts file, and BackupPC will search a pool of IP addresses looking for hosts. On the other hand, if you are backing up laptops that are only intermittently connected to the network you will want to have frequent wakeups eg: This allows multiple clients to all refer to the same physical host.

For hosts bckuppc have the DHCP flag set to 1, these machines are discovered as follows: Pick your matching version nowadays most likely apache2.

Several variables are substituted at run-time: If you only create read-only SMB shares which is a good docunentationthen the direct restore will fail.

Note that the archive numbers are not related to the backup or restore number. Specifying lname instead of name uses the language specific string ie: The fourth group are settings for email reminders, and the final group contains settings for the CGI interface.


After more backups are done, a higher percentage of incoming files will already be in the pool. Tar is run on the client machine via rsh or ssh. If it looks cryptic and confusing, and doesn’t look like an error message, then all is ok. This can be a string or an array of strings if there are multiple shares per host.
