Configuring Duplicati without GUI

Hello friends!

I’m installing Duplicati in CentOS 7 running on Google Cloud. I would like to know if there is a guide for this kind of installation.

I’ve read that is not recommended expose the Duplicati’s GUI to the internet. So, since I’m working on a Linux installation that hasn’t GUI, should I start Duplicati GUI exposed to the internet, make all the configs needed to have a backup job an then reconfigure Duplicati to run only on the loop-back interface?

You could use duplicity instead, I think it’s the underlying component that does the actual backups.

Duplicity and duplicati are two entirely different products that have nothing to do with each other.

I guess you can ssh to the machine. Just do a port forward on 8200 and connect via localhost:8200.


I agree. Assuming Google Cloud allows them this is the safest method as it keeps Duplicati from being publicly exposed AND ensures all communications between you and it are well encrypted.
