Hello, i am running a fedora 12 ppc system for backups.
Ive tried setting up backuppc using the instructions form here http://www.unixmen.com/linux-tutorials/unix-tutorials/71-install-backuppc-server-in-centosrhelfedora
however alot of the directioires they gove are either flat out wrong or dont exist.
I also edited the main config file but it wont let me make any passwords.

# htpasswd -c /var/lib/backuppc/passwd/htpasswd admin doesnt work.

Im having trouble finding decent documentation online that talks about this program.

I also test ran the sever but it only shows an apache test page.

I dunno.

Might be like what the last guy posts in the comments on the install guide,


Just to let you know it was SELinux related, I did setenforce = 0 and now it is working


Good Luck,
Pat Jr
