    I just logged into my backuppc via the web UI and I got this error

    Error: Unable to connect to BackupPC server

    backuppc wasn't running

    This is the log, see the last line

    Can't fork at /usr/share/backuppc/lib/BackupPC/Lib.pm line 1313.
    this line reads:
    Code:
    if ( !defined($pid = open(CHILD, "-|")) ) {
    At 01:00 a full backup started and it lasted 257.4 minutes ( more than 4 hours, which compared to the previous full one - 237min - sounds regular)

    I manually restarted it and now it's running fine, but I'd like to understand what happened.

    Anyone has a clue?
