Install to Cloud Instance (DigitalOcean/Vultr/GCE/…)


Usage instructions:

  • Create a new Debian 10/buster instance satisfying the minimum hardware requirements above (4GB RAM, >32GB disk, preferably second disk with >32GB). All data on the instance will be destroyed, so make sure you are really using a new instance
  • Login as root via SSH and run:
    wget https://infscape-appliance.s3.amazonaws.com/images/urbackup-app-9-6.sh
    bash urbackup-app-9-6.sh
  • The script will download and install the appliance, then reboot. Copy & paste / note down the login password shown during installation
  • If the installation is interrupted, you’ll have to destroy the instance and start with a new debian instance to retry
  • Browse to http://INSTANCEIP or http://INSTANCEHOSTNAME and follow the setup instructions. As a first step you’ll have to enter the setup login password that the setup script shows

Amazon Web Services


Usage instructions:

  • The appliance is available on the AWS Marketplace
  • Detailed step-by-step instructions (including setting up a S3 bucket) are available here
  • Create a S3 bucket. Setup an IAM policy that allows Read, Write, Delete and List on that S3 bucket
  • Create a EC2 instance using the image from the AWS Marketplace. System disk should be at least >32GB (better 64GB), with a second disk with at least >32GB (better >64GB) attached. The second disk will be used as cache for S3
  • Open TCP ports 80, 443 and 55415 during configuration
  • After starting the EC2 instance enter the instance id (shown e.g. in the AWS console) in the first setup step

Microsoft Azure


Usage instructions:

  • The appliance is available on the Azure Marketplace
  • Create a storage account and a blob storage container in this account
  • All attached disks will be used as Azure Blob Storage cache. Make sure to attach at least 64GB. Instance storage will be automatically used
  • During creation specify a username and password (not a ssh key)
  • Open TCP ports 80 (HTTP), 443 (HTTPS) and 55415 during creation
  • Assign a hostname to the VM after creation (e.g. *.westeurope.cloudapp.azure.com)
  • Browse to the hostname. As a first step the appliance will enable SSL. In the second step it will ask for the username and password specified during VM creation
  • The third step will ask for the storage account name, a storage account key and the blob storage container name. The appliance will store all data into this blob storage container
