I have the following problem. Recently I had to reinstall the server on which my urbackup-server instance was running. I was not able to save any of the settings present in /var due to the fact that I could not mount the disk at all. However, I use rsync to mirror the backup directory itself to a second disk on another machine. As such I still have the following dirs on the second disk:
clients, HOSTNAE-CLIENT, urbackup, urbackup_tmp_files.
On the primary machine I have the HOSTNAE-CLIENT dir, with all of the old backups before the server was re-installed. The files can be retrieved via scp ot sftp, so they are not lost.
However, I am not able to see the old backups in the web interface for this host, even though it backups to the same dir (successfully) as it has the same host name.
I have tried to restore the clients, urbackup, urbackup_tmp_files dirs from the rsync mirror disk, but that still did not make the old files visible in the web interface, for the client machine, and the client machine refused to connect to the new server.
My question is, is there a possible way to make the previous backups visible in the web interface? I was using urbackup-server version 2.4.13 both before and after the server crash. The server itself is using a Raspberry Pi 2 with arch Linux ARM 5.4.68-1-ARCH.
I am sorry that I can’t provide any log files, but I could not recover them from the failed server at all.
