SkyCover Duply Usage Guidelines
All the actions are executing in the command line. The Windows ™ users should start the CygWin shell.
If you are planning to save the configuration under /etc (it is available only when running as root), create folder /etc/scduply:
Otherwise the configuration will be automatically placed into ~/.scduply
In the file ~/.scduply/conf or /etc/scduply/conf set the values:
GPG_KEY – set the ID of the GPG key, if you planning to use the key,
GPG_PW – set the password for the GPG key, or the password for symmetric encryption (don’t use weak passwords),
TARGET_URL – set the path (network or local) to the backup archive storage (the examples are in the configuration file).
GPG_PW = 123456 TARGET_URL = /tmp/sctest
Create a job¶
$ scduply JOB create $ echo /path/to/backup > ~/.scduply/JOB/source
All configured jobs will be executed
$ scduply bkpall
The first backup of the job will be full, the next will be incremental with per-block difference via librsync algorythm.
$ scduply JOB restore /path/to/restore
