[K12OSN] [Fwd: K12OSN Digest, Vol 15, Issue 26]

Hi Les,

I was hoping you'd chime in. So, with your help, and somebody named bimal (http://fedoranews.org/blog/?p=603 - thanks yahoo) I got the cgi-admin going and I think backuppc is running. Thank you for the rescue. (I think suidperl, was my problem).

Is there a quick way to add clients to be backed up? I'm wondering if you have an example of the config needed to backup the entire home and etc directories of a k12ltsp server, for example? Have you ever backed up any os x macs using this? Any gotchas there?

I'm asking this here because I know there are some BackupPC mavens on this list. Also, I'm installing on top of a k12ltsp install.

A k12ltsp install would be the same as the equivalent fedora version.

Does anyone know an easy way to get this going? I'm having to do a lot of make installs, etc. and I'm worried that I'm missing some super easy yummified way of doing this.

There may be an rpm version somewhere, but I don't think it is up to date.

Plus, I'm theoretically all done with the install and nothing is working. The BackupPC docs are full of typos, so I'm getting a little confused. Any help would be appreciated. I'd like to be able to use the cgi interface. A quick checklist perhaps? I did the minimal "server" install from the k12ltsp 4.2.1 disks, so that' my starting point. I had to install perl, Archive, Compress, etc. from scratch.

Perl should have already been part of your k12ltsp install, and the needed perl modules could have been installed with the perl CPAN module easier than doing it by hand - type: perl -MCPAN -eshell (you can usually answer 'no' to the first time question about setup and just go with the defaults). Than at the CPAN prompt enter install module_name and 'quit' when done. If you followed the instructions to create a backuppc user to own everything, you may be having apache permission problems caused by selinux. Turn it off. Also, you need the setuid version of perl. 'yum install perl-suidperl' if you are using the stock version of perl or compile with that option if you really built your own. Look in /var/log/httpd/error_log to see what problem you are having if it still doesn't work.
