Installing BackupPC : The requested URL /backuppc was not found on this server


Hello there !

I have installed BackupPC from rpm, following this & this guide.

But when entering the web-interface, firefox says :
404 The requested URL /backuppc was not found on this server.

http://192.168.1.4/backuppc or http://backuppc.jocan.local is the same.

httpd is running, backuppc is running :
Code:
[root@backuppc ~]# /etc/init.d/httpd status
httpd (pid  2168) is running...
[root@backuppc ~]# /etc/init.d/backuppc status
BackupPC (pid 2206) is running...
Httpd config for backuppc :
Code:
[root@backuppc ~]# vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/BackupPC.conf 
order deny,allow
deny from none
#allow from 127.0.0.1
allow from all
But :
Code:
[root@backuppc ~]# netstat -anup | grep 80
[root@backuppc ~]# netstat -anup | grep httpd
No output... Is my httpd-server listening on port 80 ???

Firewall is down :
Code:
[root@backuppc ~]# /sbin/service iptables status
Firewall is stopped.
Oh yeah, when entering the url http://192.168.1.4, the default page is displayed, saying Apache is well installed...

Has someone an idea ??

I have set the following in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf :
User backuppc
Group backuppc

And even :
Code:
[root@backuppc ~]# chown -R backuppc /usr/lib/backuppc/
But it seems not a problem of rights...

You're right, sorry about that. Have you added the backuppc domain to the /etc/httpd/httpd.conf? I looked through the documentation on setting up backuppc for a few distros and they all have two things in common, adding the user and domain to the httpd.conf file, and editing the backuppc.conf file to contain user, directories, and host locations. If you Google 'backuppc httpd.conf' you will find some useful information, I have looked at many on the front page of the results and I think the simplest to follow would be the Arch wiki and the Mantic wiki.

edit: also, the debian howto mentioned needing a '/' at the end of the address when connecting to the backuppc web interface.

yum update
yum install backuppc

The web address (if installed from rpm) should be http://localhost/BackupPC (note the caps). Make sure the service is running before you try that address though.

This is file /etc/httpd/conf.d/BackupPC.conf (there is an include of conf.d in httpd.conf) :
Code:
<Directory      /usr/lib/backuppc/www/html >
order deny,allow
deny from none
allow from all
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/conf.d/BackupPC.users
AuthName "BackupPC Community Edition Administrative Interface"
require valid-user
</Directory>
<Directory      /usr/lib/backuppc/www/images >
order deny,allow
deny from none
allow from all
</Directory>
Alias           /BackupPC/images         /usr/lib/backuppc/www/images
ScriptAlias     /BackupPC_Admin         /usr/lib/backuppc/www/html/BackupPC_Admin
I am not accessing the webGUI from localhost but from an external host (allow from all).

Yum says : No package backuppc available.
The repo's I use :
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* addons
* base
* centosplus
* extras
* rpmforge
* updates

The caps do not make a difference :
The requested URL /BackupPC was not found on this server.

And this is a Xen vm I'm working on, so no GUI on the localhost for me...
Don't tell me BackupPC needs to be accessed via localhost because then I will search for another solution.


EDIT :

Looking carefully at the scriptalias :
Code:
ScriptAlias     /BackupPC_Admin         /usr/lib/backuppc/www/html/BackupPC_Admin
makes my backupPC accessible via http://backuppc.jocan.local/BackupPC_Admin and now I've got it working !
