Bacula is an open-source backup and recovery software that allows you to manage backups, restores, and verification of computer data across a network of computers. It provides a comprehensive solution for backing up and recovering data in both physical and virtual environments.
Here are the steps to install Bacula on CentOS 8:
sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install bacula
sudo systemctl start bacula-dir
sudo systemctl enable bacula-dir
sudo setsebool -P bacula_can_network_connect on
You can configure Bacula by editing the configuration files located at /etc/bacula/. The main configuration file is bacula-dir.conf which defines the storage, clients, and schedules for backups. Make the necessary changes according to your environment and requirements.
sudo systemctl restart bacula-dir
If you want to use Bacula as a storage daemon, you need to configure the Bacula Storage Service. Edit the bacula-sd.conf configuration file located in /etc/bacula/ and configure the storage, devices, and pools.
sudo systemctl start bacula-sd
sudo systemctl enable bacula-sd
If you want to backup files on the local machine, you need to configure the Bacula File Service. Edit the bacula-fd.conf configuration file located in /etc/bacula/ and configure the client settings.
sudo systemctl start bacula-fd
sudo systemctl enable bacula-fd
