Installation

  • Download the My Secure Backup installation TAR file and extract the TAR file to a local directory.
     
  • Run the executable. A configuration screen will appear the first time.
     
  • Proceed through the Initial Setup and Configuration.
     
  • Once you have configured My Secure Backup, it will continue running in the taskbar. If you restart your computer, you will need to restart the My Secure Backup application.
     
  • To connect to My Secure Backup in KDE, just open a Konquerer window and type "webdav://localhost:2667/". In GNOME select "Connect to Server" under the "Places" menu. Set the Service type to "WebDAV (HTTP)". Enter "localhost" for the server and "2667" for the port.
     
  • You can also mount My Secure Backup as a standard file system using DAVfs. Download, compile, and install DAVfs, then mount My Secure Backup by running: mount.davfs http://localhost:2667 /mnt/MOUNTPOINT -o nolocks
     
  • Note: To allow mounting as a non-root user, you will need to add the mount point to your /etc/fstab file.
     
  • A command-line-only version of the application is also included, see the INSTALL file included with the download for more information.
     
  • My Secure Backup attempts to locate your web browser automatically when clicking links in the software. If it does not find your preferred web browser, simply create a symlink to your browser named ~/.mysecurebackup/browser
