    Backuppc help

    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-tutoria...ntosrhelfedora
    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.

    well the server seems to be up but i cant authenticate into it the problem earlier was apache wasnt looking at 127.0.0.1. but i really have no clue as to why i cant authenticate into the server. any ideas?

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