    I'm trying to follow along with:

    And after I try to run (as root): apt-get install backuppc rsync libfile-rsyncp-perl smbfs

    I get....

    Setting up backuppc (2.1.2-2ubuntu5) ...
    * Starting backuppc... 2007-10-29 09:29:35 $Conf{SendmailPath} = '/usr/sbin/sendmail' is not a valid executable program
    invoke-rc.d: initscript backuppc, action "start" failed.
    dpkg: error processing backuppc (--configure):
    subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Setting up smbfs (3.0.22-1ubuntu3.3) ...
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    It looks like its some what working because I'm able to login but once In I see the menu options but at the top of the page it says...

    "Unable to connect to server."
    Any ideas?

    Sorry for my delay, that hard drive actually died so I'm doing this on an other install. I follow the instructions and I get through them with out any errors until I run a...

    dpkg-reconfigure backuppc

    It returns this...

    root@callisto:/mnt# dpkg-reconfigure backuppc
    * Stopping backuppc... No process in pidfile `/var/run/backuppc/' found running; none killed.
    [ ok ]
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/backuppc.postinst: line 45: /usr/share/wwwconfig-common/ No such file or directory

    I'm able to pull up the Web interface which still says "Error: Unable to connect to BackupPC server."

    The logs on the website only say... "Contents of file /var/lib/backuppc/log/LOG, modified 2007-10-31 10:51:55
