I’m trying to set up a remote backup to Wasabi. If there are some comprehensive step by step instructions on how to do this from start to finish, I’m sorry but I could not find them. Everything I could find just seems to assume you already have the buckets and user accounts already set up (including both on the Wasabi and Duplicati sites). This was the bit I am struggling with because the UI stuff in Duplicati is mostly self-explanatory.
What I have done:
- I have a wasabi account with a user specifically crated for using with duplicati.
- Created a bucket with a folder specifically for use with duplicati
- I have given that user full access to that folder
- created a folder inside that folder specifically for the backup set I am currently creating
- I have created the access ID and Key for that user
- I have no idea if I need an API key (I can’t see anywhere in duplicati to put that) so that user was created with console access (since it’s the only other option and you have to select one)
- I have also done a lot of web searches and all of them seem to assume you the user account for the backup is already all set up and good to go but no information on what the settings should be for that.
What I am trying to do now, at the backup destination screen:
- Selected S3 Compatible
- Use SSL didn’t seem to make any difference? I’m not sure if I would need my own certificate or if it’s using wasabi’s, it is unchecked by default
- I set the server to Wasabi Hot Storage
- I set the relevant bucket name and region
- Folder path is set to duplicati/diary/
- Access ID and Key is for the duplicati user
- client library is left at the default of Amazon AWS
When I click ‘Test Connection’ nothing happens, except a status bar message indication a call to the local duplicati server
I have tried various combinations of SSL on/off, client library (Amazon or Minio) and whether the folder path should include initial and/or final slash, or whether it should be the full path or just the path inside the home folder for the backup user.
In all cases test connection just doesn’t provide any feedback at all.
Years ago I used Wasabi with rclone and a fairly simple batch file for my backups so it’s not my first time dealing with S3 style storage, but it has been awhile. I don’t remember it being this difficult.
