bacula Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies bacula-11.0.1.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Your best bet to get Bacula compiled and running is
to read the online manual at:

You will save yourself a lot of pain if you read
the manual -- it is online at the above site.
Barring reading the manual, you might try the

To Configure it:

        CFLAGS="-g -O2" \
          ./configure \
            --sbindir=$HOME/bacula/bin \
            --sysconfdir=$HOME/bacula/bin \
            --with-pid-dir=$HOME/bacula/bin/working \
            --with-subsys-dir=$HOME/bacula/bin/working \
            --enable-smartalloc \
            --with-mysql \
            --with-working-dir=$HOME/bacula/bin/working \

Build Bacula:


   If you are doing a port, there should be no errors.  The most
   likely source of errors will probably come in the src/stored
   directory in time.c or dev.c.  There may also be problems in
   lib/signal.c as I currently pull in all Linux signals, some of
   which may not be available on your system.

To create the database:


To install:

   make install

To start it:

   cd $HOME/bacula/bin
   ./bacula start

To start it (as a developer). This is not appropriate if you
are installing Bacula.

   ./bacula start

To stop it:

  ./bacula stop

Well, it is all just a bit more complicated than that,
but you should have the idea.

Be sure you read the chapter about testing your tape drive!
Don't waste a lot of time setting up and running Bacula, if
your drive is not supported.

FreeBSD users, pay special attention to the Device configuration
parameters needed to deal with FreeBSD tape drivers.
