So - Crashplan refugee here. I used to use crashplan to back up my home machines, my friends / family machines and I have a server dedicated to being the ‘backup server’.
Previously under Crashplan I’d just enable ‘backup to peer’ and have everyone turn off their peering, and select my backup server as a destination. Everything worked well ( where the definition of ‘well’ for crashplan = crapped out regularly after version 3.x). But more or less it was pretty plug-and-play.
I’m trying to figure out how to do similar with Duplicati.
But similar to What about a manual? " Where’s the manual" i’m having difficulty in even figuring out where to start. That thread asks for 'help understanding where people are getting confused" so here’s mine
I’ve downloaded the rpm (my backup server runs fedora), and the windows installer.
I’ve looked at the ‘getting started’ Article, which starts with 'Let’s begin configuring a backup…"
But I’m not seeing anything on ‘how to create a backup server’. It looks like it’s all geared towards destinations which are providers - S3, OneDrive, etc etc.
I figured I’d have to create myself a WebDAV service on my backup machine (I can do all the port forwarding etc etc) but I’m not seeing anywhere for ‘how to create a backup server of your own’.
Am I missing something, or can someone point me at a ‘how-to’ to ‘roll my own backup service’?
Thanks in advance
