NAME

bbackupd.conf - Box Backup client daemon configuration file  

SYNOPSIS

/etc/box/bbackupd.conf
 

DESCRIPTION

AccountNumber

The account number of this client. This is set by the admin of the store server.

UpdateStoreInterval

Specifies the interval between scanning of the local discs. To avoid cycles of load on the server, this time is randomly adjusted by a small percentage as the daemon runs. Defaults to 1 hour.

MinimumFileAge

Specifies how long since a file was last modified before it will be uploaded. Defaults to 6 hours.

MaxUploadWait

If a file is repeatedly modified it won't be uploaded immediately in case it's modified again. However it should be uploaded eventually. This is how long we should wait after first noticing a change. Defaults to 1 day.

MaxFileTimeInFuture

AutomaticBackup

SyncAllowScript

Use this to temporarily stop bbackupd from syncronising or connecting to the store. This specifies a program or script script which is run just before each sync, and ideally the full path to the interpreter. It will be run as the same user bbackupd is running as, usually root.

The script prints either "now" or a number to STDOUT (and a terminating newline, no quotes). If the result was "now", then the sync will happen. If it's a number, then the script will be asked again in that number of seconds.

For example, you could use this on a laptop to only backup when on a specific network.

MaximumDiffingTime

How much time should be spent on diffing files.

FileTrackingSizeThreshold

DiffingUploadSizeThreshold

StoreHostname

The hostname or IP address of the bbstored(8) server.

StorePort

The port used by the server. Defaults to 2201.

ExtendedLogging

Logs everything that happens between the client and server. The bbackupd(8) client must also be started with -V.

ExtendedLogFile

LogAllFileAccess

LogFile

LogFileLevel

CommandSocket

Where the command socket is created in the filesystem.

StoreObjectInfoFile

NotifyScript

The location of the script which runs at certain events. This script is generated by bbackupd-config(8). Defaults to /etc/box/bbackupd/NotifySysAdmin.sh.

NotifyAlways

CertificateFile

The path to the client's public certificate.

PrivateKeyFile

The path to the client's private key. This should only be readable by root.

TrustedCAsFile

The Certificate Authority created by bbstored-certs(8).

KeysFile

The data encryption key. This must be kept safe at all costs, your data is useless without it!

DataDirectory

A directory to keep temporary state files. This is usually something like /var/bbackupd.

Server

This section relates to the running daemon.

PidFile

The location of the process ID file. Defaults to /var/run/bbackupd.pid.

BackupLocations

This section defines each directory to be backed up. Each entry must have at least a Path entry and, optionally, include and exclude directives.

Multiple include and exclude directives may appear.

Path

The path to back up.

ExcludeFile

Exclude a single file.

ExcludeFilesRegex

Exclude multiple files based on a regular expression. See re_format(7).

ExcludeDir

Exclude a single directory.

ExcludeDirsRegex

Exclude multiple directories based on a regular expression. See re_format(7).

AlwaysIncludeFile

Include a single file from a directory which has been excluded.

AlwaysIncludeFilesRegex

Include multiple files from an excluded directory, based on a regular expression.

AlwaysIncludeDir

Include a single directory from a directory which has been excluded.

AlwaysIncludeDirsRegex

Include multiple directories from an excluded directory, based on a regular expression.
 

EXAMPLES

The following is an example of a backup location:

home
{
   Path = /home
   ExcludeDir = /home/guest
   ExcludeDir = /home/[^/]+/tmp
   ExcludeFilesRegex = .*\.(mp3|MP3)$
   AlwaysIncludeFile = /home/someuser/importantspeech.mp3
}
