    I am trying to use BackupPC on Suse 10.2 and ISPConfig with only 2 domains “in parking” but I have some problem with the users.

    Here what I have done:

    /etc/BackupPC - here the
    /usr/local/BackuPC - here the binary files

    I have put the BackupPC_Admin files in the cgi-bin of 1 domain and in the public the image files, therefore:


    When I go:

    I get this error

    Error: Unable to read or language strings!!
    Notes: $ENV {REMOTE_USER} is not set, which could mean to there is an installation problem. BackupPC_Admin expects Apache to authenticate the user and pass their user name into this script as the REMOTE_USER environment variable. See the documentation.

    What I am doing wrong? Thanks

    How exactly did you install BackupPC?

    Thanks for your reply!

    I put via ftp the file BackupPC-3.0.0.tar , then, by shell as root, I moved it in / root / job /
    By shell as root I untared the file with the command “tar xzvf BackupPC-3.0.0.tar “, I moved in the BackupPC directory and I launched “sudo perl”
    These are the info I set at the install:

    --> Full path to existing conf/ []?
    --> Are these paths correct? [y]? y
    --> BackupPC will run on host [hostname]? domain.xx
    --> BackupPC should run as user [backuppc]? web2_nameuser
    --> Install directory (full path) []? /etc/BackuPC
    --> Data directory (full path) []? /copia/backup
    --> Compression level [3]?
    --> CGI bin directory (full path) []? /srv/www/web2/cgi-bin
    --> Apache image directory (full path) []? /srv/www/web2/web/backuppc/
    --> URL for image directory (omit http://host; starts with '/') []? /backuppc
    --> Do you want to continue? [y]? y
