We are happy to take care of your backups so that you can concentrate on your core business.
To simplify the following steps, temporary access to your system is sufficient for us. If you are unable or unwilling to grant us access, you can find instructions on how to install the agent here:
Log in at https://backup.23m.com with the user data provided to you and then click on Download.
In the Linux section, select either cURL or wget.
Change to the /opt directory on your server.
and paste the clipboard into the terminal. The download will now start. As soon as this is complete, the file must be made executable.
chmod +x 23MBackup-22.11.1.run
You can now start the installation.
Enter your user name and password during the installation process. The server URL is already stored. Simply confirm with ↩
You can also leave the device name as it is and confirm with ↩.
The host name of the system will then be used.
The agent is started directly at the end of the installation. You can check this with the following command.
ps aux | grep -i backup
The following processes should be found.
root 69284 0.0 0.0 222532 3212 pts/0 S 14:31 0:00 /bin/bash /opt/23MBackup/backup-daemon-start.sh
root 69287 0.0 0.0 222532 264 pts/0 S 14:31 0:00 /bin/bash /opt/23MBackup/backup-daemon-start.sh
root 69288 0.0 0.9 744484 36848 pts/0 Sl 14:31 0:00 /opt/23MBackup/backup-tool cmd -ValidateConfig=false -Action=delegate-server
root 69309 0.0 0.7 744740 28724 pts/0 Sl 14:34 0:00 ./backup-tool stream
The server should now also be visible in the web interface.
To ensure that the agent also starts automatically after a system restart, you must create a service unit.
Insert the following content:
[Unit] Description=Comet Backup Client After=network.target [Service] Type=simple RemainAfterExit=true KillMode=none User=root LimitNOFILE=65535 ExecStart=/opt/23MBackup/backup-daemon-start.sh [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
Finally, activate the service.
systemctl enable cometd.service
As soon as the agent has been installed correctly, we can create the backup job on our server.
If you have any questions or need help with this process, our support team will be happy to assist you.
