h3. 1. Install Server Backup Manager using YUM

h4. 1.1 Configure the YUM Repository

*YUM* is the easiest way to keep programs up-to-date on RedHat-compatible distributions. *YUM* downloads and installs the latest version of a program. You should configure the *YUM repository* to manage installations of and [upgrades|Upgrade Server Backup Manager for Linux] to Server Backup Manager.

First, create a YUM {{.repo}} file with the R1Soft repository information. Save the file in the {{yum.repos.d}} directory, which is typically located in {{/etc/}}.

1. Open the new file with a text editor such as *vi* or *nano*:

{code}cd /etc/yum.repos.d
vi r1soft.repo{code}
{code}nano -w /etc/yum.repos.d/r1soft.repo {code}


2. Insert the following text into the file and save the file:

name=R1Soft Repository Server

{note:title=Tip}{{$basearch}} is a Yum variable, i.e., the base architecture (32-bit, 64-bit, etc.).{note}


3. To verify what is written to the file, use the following command:

{code}cat /etc/yum.repos.d/r1soft.repo {code}


h4. 1.2 Install the package

1. With the installed YUM repository, you can use the following command to install Server Backup Manager:

{code}yum install serverbackup-enterprise{code}


2. Then, enter "y" to install all the dependencies of the package.


3. Once complete, you can use the help command to list all available options:

{code}serverbackup-setup --help{code}


4. Now, proceed to the [Step 3|#login].
h3. 2. Install the Server Backup Manager manually using rpm

h4. 2.1 Download Server Backup Manager

See [Obtain Linux Backup Manager].

h4. 2.2 Make sure you can unzip the download

Most Linux distributions come with the *unzip* utility pre-installed. To determine if you have the *unzip* utility, run:

{code}which unzip{code}

This should return an output similar to the following:

{code}which unzip


If it returns the following output, you need to install the *unzip* utility first:

{code}/usr/bin/which: no unzip in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin){code}

To install unzip on RHE, CentOS, and Fedora:

{code}yum install unzip{code}


h4. 2.3 Extract the ZIP file

We recommend creating a temporary directory to which you can extract the contents of the ZIP file.

1. Use the {{mkdir}} command to create a temporary directory (in our case, {{serverbackup}}).

{code}mkdir serverbackup{code}

2. Use the {{mv}} command to move the archive to that directory. Note that Linux file names are case-sensitive. Make sure you type the name correctly (in our case, "**").

{code}mv serverbackup{code}

3. Use the {{cd}} command to go to that directory.

{code}cd serverbackup{code}
4. Use the {{unzip}} command to extract the files.
{code}cd enterprise-manager-rpm/{code}


h4. 2.4 Install the packages

{note:title=Notice}You must be a Linux root user to install the Server Backup Manager.
The archive you have extracted contains two folders: one with {{.deb}} packages (in our case, "*enterprise-manager-deb*") and one with {{.rpm}} packages ("*enterprise-manager-rpm*"). If you are installing on RedHat and CentOS, select the {{.rpm}} package.

Each folder contains a set of Server Backup components:
* {{serverbackup-setup}}
* {{serverbackup-manager}}
* {{serverbackup-enterprise}}

You will need to install all of them in one step. Use the {{cd}} command to go to the folder with the packages (in our case, {{deb-linux32}})

And run the following command:

*RPM 32-bit (x86)* / *RPM 64-bit (x86_64)*

{code}rpm -i *.rpm{code} !rpm-i.png|border=1!

{info:title=Note}The installed files are located in the {{/usr/sbin/r1soft}} directory. The Manager startup script is {{/etc/init.d/cdp-server}}.

{info:title=Note}You do not need to install the kernel module on the Server.

h3. {anchor:login}3. Configure and start the Server Backup Manager Web-based user interface

1. You must *define a username and password* for Backup Manager Web Interface before you can begin using Server Backup Manager.

{code}serverbackup-setup --user DESIRED_USERNAME --pass DESIRED_PASSWORD{code}

After running this command, you will see an output similar to the following:

{code}serverbackup-setup --user admin --pass r1soft
Server username and password set
The Server Backup Manager must be restarted for these changes to take effect
Use '/etc/init.d/cdp-server restart' to restart.{code}


To restart the Server Backup Manager run the following command:


2. *Configure Ports* if necessary.

By default, the embedded web server in Server Backup Manager required for the Web-based Interface will listen on TCP ports 80 (HTTP) and 443 (HTTPS). These ports are frequently used by your Linux server (e.g., by Apache). If you are already using ports 80 and 443, you will need to define different ports. Ports 8080 (HTTP) and 8443 (HTTPS) are recommended alternatives to standard 80 and 443. However, you can choose any other valid and unused TCP port.

{code}serverbackup-setup --http-port 8080 --https-port 8443{code}


{info:title=Note}You may need to change the firewall rules, depending on where you are connecting to the Web Interface from.

See also: [Configure Server Backup Manager on Linux].

3. Start the Web Interface (Backup Manager):

{code}/etc/init.d/cdp-server restart{code}


You should now be able to connect to the Server Backup Manager Web interface using Firefox or Internet Explorer. See [Access Server Backup Manager Web interface].
