Maximum number of simultaneous doxumentation to run. The backuppc-announce list is moderated documenntation is used only for important announcements eg: This creates additional security risks. Zip, also from http: This saves space if all the files in a directory have the same attributes across multiple backups, which is common. By selecting the backup number you can navigate the shares and directory tree for that backup.

It is ok to change the compression value from one non-zero value to another non-zero value after dumps are already done.

Deleted, new files and renamed files are detected by rsync incrementals. The Apache web server, see http: This specifies one blackout period from 7: To see if your perl has setuid emulation, see if there is a program called sperl5.

Now let’s move onto BackupPC itself.

If empty, then the graphs will be skipped. You can of course use any kind of RAID system or logical volume manager that combines the capacity of multiple disks into a single, larger, file system. Subdirectory in which the current backup is stored. So in the sadly common case of a large attachment emailed to many recipients, Eudora will extract the attachment into a new file.

FTP is a standard module. It can be browsed from the host’s home page.

There are several ways to do this. Manually requested backups via the CGI interface will still occur. Uses the commandline par2 par2cmdline available from http: The parameters are explained in the config. Use “df -i” to see your inode usage. To verify that it can run sendmail and deliver email correctly you should ask it to send a test email to you:. The setting can be a hostname or IP address, eg:.

Each incremental backup averages about 0.


First, you can keep the backups accessible and browsable, but disable all new backups. This is a four step process:. Here’s a rule of thumb. It’s pretty easy to fetch and compile samba, and just grab smbclient and nmblookup, without doing the installation.

In particular, you will need to decide whether to use smb, tar,or rsync or ftp transport or whether to set it on a per-PC basis and set the relevant parameters for that transport method.

You should be able documentatuon run simultaneous backups on a moderately configured server. BackupPC can be configured to do a full backup at a regular interval typically weekly. If you want documentqtion disable ping checking for IPv6 hosts, set this to some program that exits with 0 status, eg:.
