The first step to install the Server Backup Manager is to create a new YUM .repo file with the R1Soft repository information. Save the file in the yum.repos.d directory (typically located in /etc/).
Add the following:
[r1soft] name=R1soft Repository Server baseurl=http://repo.r1soft.com/yum/stable/$basearch/ enabled=1 gpgcheck=0
Verify what was written to the file by running ‘cat /etc/yum.repos.d/r1soft.repo’
# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/r1soft.repo
Now that the repo is added, run ‘yum install serverbackup-enterprise’ to install Server Backup Manager. Enter ‘y’ to install the package and its dependencies.
# yum install serverbackup-enterprise
Next you need to configure and start the Backup Manager Web-based user interface. Define a username and password for the WebUI by running ‘serverbackup-setup –user
# serverbackup-setup --user r1user --pass 12w34r
It is necessary to configure a different set of ports for the Backup Manager WebUI. This will mitigate the use of random port assignments. To configure different ports for the Backup Manager WebUI, run ‘serverbackup-setup –http-port 26080 –https-port 26443’
# serverbackup-setup --http-port 26080 --https-port 26443
Finally, start the Backup Manager WebUI by running ‘/etc/init.d/cdp-server restart’
# /etc/init.d/cdp-server restart
Next, open the WebUI by pointing a browser to http://
Next – install the agent software on your linux server or VM that you need backed up ( See Installing the R1Soft Linux Agent on CentOS)
