BackupPC

Has anyone here installed BackupPC on a FreeBSD server successfully?

I have been reading.. configuring.. testing.. and been getting angry all day. I've double checked to make sure the paths in the config.pl file are correct. It's just not working for me.

I keep getting the "Error: Unable to read config.pl or language strings!!" error when I open http://hostname/cgi-bin/BackupPC_Admin from another PC.

OK I have some progress...

Code: Select all
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/backuppc start

Quitting...


The fs is UFS. I tried 2 different hard drives with UFS. (don't have any others to try them though)

Edit: It was a permission problem. The parent dirs were restricted so it didn't matter that the folder I was using for Backup was chown'd for backuppc.
