I’ve just started playing with duplicati. Looks very good!
The issue I’m running into is backing up files using storage type SFTP (SSH) without a password using pubkey (keyfile) only. I’ve searched the forum, spend time on it but perhaps I did not look in the right area’s.
In the UI when creating a new backup under the ‘backup destination’ there is a ‘password’ field requiring ‘authentication password’, even though that should not be needed when using pubkey based authentication and when the correct keyfile has been set. In the webinterface I’m forced to enter a password, even though I’ve selected the correct keyfile (/root/.ssh/id_rsa) and using the correct the ssh-fingerprint. A ‘test connection’ gives ‘you must fill in the password’.
How can I make backups over SSH without password?
- I’m using an unencrypted private key. I’ve tried both the ssh-key option as well as the keyfile options.
- Manual backup works using rsync and the provided information. So permissions, server address, port, key paths etc. are correct.
Thanks @JonMikelV for helping clarify the question.
