  • Their FAQ says that Bacula went partially closed and Bareos was an attempt for a fully open alternative. This is yet another great example of how pure open source protects projects from vendors going bad.

  • Well I'm at the login screen, and its doesn't allow me to actually sign in.

    It's not presenting an error message or anything, just takes sits at the login screen. . .


  • Might have found it, the user you create during installation isn't the web gui user. . .

    It has a default user called "user1", doing some testing.

  • Got it.

    So after you have postgres installed, you can just install the package for your distro.

    From that, you run a few commands (of course these are strewn all about) and then reload the config (or reboot the host) and you can sign in.
