    Backuppc help

    Hello, i am running a fedora 12 ppc system for backups.
    Ive tried setting up backuppc using the instructions form here
    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,
