Default ftplicity + Debian


I follow the how to to backup via Duplicity and ftplicity but I have a few error.
Debian 4.0
duplicity 0.4.12
ftplicity 1.1.1

Simple backup is ok:
ftplicity backup
NcFTP version is 3.2.0
Reading globbing filelist /root/.ftplicity/exclude
Last full backup date: Thu Jul 24 10:29:28 2008

Enter 'duplicity --help' for help screen.

The acceptible time strings are intervals (like "3D64s"), w3-datetime
strings, like "2002-04-26T04:22:01-07:00" (strings like
"2002-04-26T04:22:01" are also acceptable - rdiff-backup will use the
current time zone), or ordinary dates like 2/4/1997 or 2001-04-23
(various combinations are acceptable, but the month always precedes
the day).
I check all the forum plus google during 3 days and now I am lost

@donut: is there a newer version there?

I just patched this manually as the commands how to execute duplicity (what ftplicity actually does) differ since the upgrade of debian.
Eventhough it is the german forum, i posted it here: http://www.howtoforge.de/forum/showt...icity#post9563

In case you do not get it translated, just drop me a PN I will translate it then.

i am german

yes the version is newer than the ct-version.

i am working with ubuntu 9.04 - the ct-version did not work for me. i got erros like "wrong timestamp". its not the same error as mentioned in the german posting.

the latest version of ftplicity i found at sf.net works perfect..
there are some changes.. you can use many profiles and the config variables are in english.
