How To Install R1Soft Backup Server on CentOS

R1Soft Server Backup Manager gives service providers a flexible, server-friendly solution that eliminates the pains of running traditional backups. Our Continuous Data Protection™ technology enables users to run backups as frequently as every 15 minutes, with no negative impact on server performance.This highly-anticipated feature provides hosting providers with a simple means of replicating backup data across Server Backup Manager (SBM) servers regardless of their geographic location.

First, create a YUM .repo file with the R1Soft repository information. Save the file in the yum.repos.d directory which is typically located in /etc/.

Use your favorite editor

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
vi r1soft.repo

Insert the following text into the file and save the file:

[r1soft] name=R1Soft Repository Server
baseurl=http://repo.r1soft.com/yum/stable/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

Save and exit.

Once you have configured the YUM repository, you can use the following command to install the Backup Agent:

yum install serverbackup-enterprise -y

Configure Server Backup Manager on Linux

After installation, you need to configure the Backup Manager. You can get examples of the input with the following code:

serverbackup-setup –help

Define a username and a password for the Backup Manager Web interface.

serverbackup-setup –user DESIRED_USERNAME –pass DESIRED_PASSWORD

By default, the embedded Web server required for the Web-based interface will listen on TCP ports 80 (HTTP) and 443 (HTTPS). These ports are frequently in use by your Linux Server (e.g., by Apache). If you are already using ports 80 and 443, you will need to define different ports. 8080 (HTTP) and 8443 (HTTPS) are recommended alternatives to standard 80 and 443. You can choose any valid and unused TCP port you like.

serverbackup-setup –http-port 8080 –https-port 8443

Start the Web interface (the Backup Manager):

/etc/init.d/cdp-server restart

You may need to change firewall rules depending on from where you are connecting to the Web interface.

You may need to configure heap memory. See Configure heap memory.
