System Backups with Bacula
Any computing environment should have a solid backup and recovery solution. BACULA provides the means to routinely and automatically backup host systems. BACULA utilizes database instances to manage file histories and retention policies. BACULA also can transmit and store data via encryption.
I've chosed PostgreSQL Database server. You could also leverage MySQL. Personal preference.
Install Postgres Database server
Documentation exists for pgsql/pgadmin setup... Either way have postgres installed and configured prior to installing the Bacula pacakges.
Using your favorite package manager get:
- bacula-director-mysql (If using mysql instead of pgsql)
