Question ? How do I install the backup scripts ?  

 Install the RPM-archive with:

rpm -Uhv stargate-backup-x.xx-xmdk.noarch.rpm

If you install the tar-file - make sure the files are in the following locations:

/etc/backup/backup.cfg
/etc/backup/backup_list.cfg
/etc/backup/exclude_list.cfg
/etc/backup/mirror_list.cfg
/etc/backup/nocompress.cfg
/etc/cron.d/Backup
/usr/bin/Backup.sh
/usr/share/doc/stargate-backup-1.35/GPL_V2.txt
/usr/share/doc/stargate-backup-1.35/README
/usr/share/doc/stargate-backup-1.35/stargate_backup.spec
/var/backup

Edit the /etc/backup/*.cfg files - and adapt to your needs. Explanations are in there. Make sure you have the Backup-Directory well defined.

Make a test with - as user root:

~#Backup.sh -f # for a full backup
~#Backup.sh -i # for an Incremental Backup - since last full backup !

The report will tell you where to find your backed-up archives. If all runs fine - activate the Cronjob by editing the /etc/cron.d/Backup file (Uncomment the respective lines and adapt times).

NOTE: First run a Full-backup - else the incremental backups will fail !
