I have recently installed on a Debian squeeze_64 server the Backupninja and Duplicity utilities. My goal is to backup
/desti/nation/ with full backup once a week and differentially once a day (say, sunday 01:00 the full and 01:00 daily).
/desti/nation/ is a mounted nfs directory from
root@toor:/etc/backup.d# ls 10-full.dup 15-incr.dup root@toor:/etc/backup.d# cat * options = --no-encryption --dry-run --verbosity 9 testconnect=yes [source] include=/foo/bar/ [dest] incremental=no increments=0 keep=60 desturl = file:///desti/nation options = --no-encryption --dry-run --verbosity 9 testconnect=yes [source] include=/foo/bar/ [dest] incremental=yes increments=7 keep=60 desturl = file:///desti/nation root@toor:/etc/backup.d# backupninja --debug --test --now
The output is fulfilled with boring debug messages, but it contains the following:
Info: >>>> starting action /etc/backup.d/10-full.dup (because of --now)
Fatal: The password option must be set.
Fatal: <<<< finished action /etc/backup.d/10-full.dup: FAILED
And the same for 15-incr.dup, respectively.
Info: FINISHED: 2 actions run. 2 fatal. 0 error. 0 warning.
is the final line. Well, I configured it to work without gpg and any kind of authorization, but it still needs a password. What is my fault?
Added the following lines to the files:
[gpg] sign=no encryptkey= signkey= password=
but the problem is exactly the same.
I really don't know what happened, I set once the password to a random value in both of the files. Then suffered endlessly, changed almost everything, and now tried
password="". IT WORKS. Well, the next step was like
password=dsfdghfd. Works too.
So I didn't find the solution, it repaired itself or what.
