I’m testing duplicati on linux (ubuntu) for ca a week now and have come across 3 oddities:
A) Installing the .deb via dpkg does not enable the systemctl service for duplicati: I consider this tremendously important, otherwise you set up your backups in the webui and trust your machine is backing up, when in fact it is simply doing nothing.
B) After googling why the machine is not backup up I systemctl enable duplicati manually, assuming it will now work and backup without me starting duplicati manually after every reboot. I was mistaking: Duplicati server is running, I see it in the process list and in systemctl status, but when I launch the webui no backup has been made, and then the backup starts catching up the missed backup, and the last shown backup is not e.g. 1pm as configured but 5pm, when I launched the gui
C) I just started duplicati manually again since I know it won’t backup automatically and all my backup sets and configurations are gone. It gives me the first time setup question whether I have a multi user system, the whole this is reset. Was there a silent update in the background that wiped my configuration?
Thanks for any input !
