BackupPC error: Wrong user: my userid is 123, instead of 0(root)

Sorry, The BackupPC GUI gives a userID error. The backup is still running, I can't open the GUI.
This started when the OS was upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04 to 14.04
Which subsequently upgraded Apache from 2.2 to 2.4

I found a similar post but it appears my setup is more complicated. When I look at apache2.conf and locate User
it is prefaced by #These need to be set in /etc/apache2/envars

Another post indicated a quick fix was to run a sim link, which had no effect on the issue:
sudo ln -s /etc/backuppc/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/backuppc.conf
Restart Apache by: sudo service apache2 restart

Please let me know if additional information is required.
Thanks for your help

Sorry, but you forgot to describe the actual problem. I gather it has something to do with apache and users ...


apache, backuppc, gui
