After [installation|Install Server Backup Manager on Linux], you need to configure the Backup Manager. You can get examples of the input with the following code:

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

1. Define a _username_ and a _password_ for the Backup Manager Web interface.

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

After running the code above, you will see an output similar to the following:

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


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

{code}serverbackup-setup --http-port 8080 --https-port 8443{code}
3. Start the Web interface (the Backup Manager):

{code}/etc/init.d/cdp-server restart{code}
4. You may need to change firewall rules depending on from where you are connecting to the Web interface.

5. You may need to configure heap memory. See [Configure heap memory].

6. 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].
{info:title=Note}You do not need to install the kernel module on the server.
