On RedHat/Fedora you may need to:
yum install perl-suidperl
Look for the error messages in /var/log/httpd/error_log.

If the target is unix/linux rsync is probably what you want.

You need to set up ssh keys so the backuppc user can execute commands
as root on the target machine without a password prompt.

It is in the web page for the host.  You may need to set up
http authentication so you can log in as the backuppc admin
