Duplicati as a Mac Service
I am not the only CrashPlan cast off looking for another backup service. After a lot of looking around I settled on Duplicati. https://duplicati.com
For Mac OS X Duplicati is a simple install but you will find permissions errors when venturing outside of your user folder. The fix is to run Duplicati as a service so it launches as a Deamon on boot. To accomplish this you need to install Duplicati, Mono and a couple Plists.
- Download and install the mac version of duplicati
- Create a file in /Library/LaunchDaemons named net.duplicati.server.plist with the following code
- Create a file in /Library/LaunchAgents named net.duplicati.tray-icon.plist
Now after rebooting you simply goto your web browser http://localhost:8200 and start configuring Duplicati.
