SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

The bbackupd-config script creates configuration files and client certificates. It takes at least six parameters:
config-dir
Configuration directory. Usually /etc/box.
backup-mode
Either lazy or snapshot.
account-num
The client account number. This is set by the bbstored administrator.
server-hostname
The hostname or IP address of the bbstored server.
working-dir
A directory to keep temporary state files. This is usually something like /var/bbackupd. This can be changed in bbackupd.conf later on if required.
backup-dir
A space-separated list of directories to be backed up. Note that this does not traverse mount points.

FILES

/etc/box/bbackupd.conf
