Hello, I am trying to find a backup solution that will work with a linux server that is CLI only. Does duplicati require the Linux server to have a GUI like Crashplan to install?
Hello and welcome!
No, duplicati does not require a GUI to be installed. You can manage it using a web browser on a different computer, but note that you’ll need to adjust what network interface duplicati listens on. By default it only listens on localhost so it isn’t accessible across the network.
Using Duplicati from the Command Line is completely GUI-free if you really want that (but it’s harder…).
Note the true command line operation is independent from server, so lacks features such as schedules.
There’s also a third-party duplicati-client project around, if you need to use server facilities using the CLI.
