    Attention: The login details will differ from those shown in the above screen, the screen is just to show the correctly entered data.

    Connection from a dedicated server

    To connect to the backup service from a dedicated server we use the lftp command.

    The first step is to install the lftp service on the server:

    Depending on the operating system you are using, we run the following commands using the command line:

    (RedHat, CentOS etc.)

    yum install lftp


    (Ubuntu, Debian etc.)

    apt-get install lftp

    Next, we modify the etc/lftp.conf file by adding the following variables to it:

    set ftp:ssl-protect-data true
    set ftp:ssl-force true
    set ftp:ssl-auth TLS
    set ssl:verify-certificate nos

    Then we use the following command to connect to the backup server:

    lftp ftp://username:password@hostname:21


    root@test:~# lftp ftp://b733706:QD0TPduNuhPfgsD2@storage-space:21
    lftp b733706@storage-space:~>

    To upload a single file to the backup space, we use the command:

    lftp ftp://username:password@hostname:21 -e “cd Folder; put File; quit”

    To upload the entire folder, use the command:

    lftp ftp://username:password@hostname:21 -e “cd Folder; mirror -R {local folder location} {target folder location on the server}; quit”


    root@test:~# lftp ftp://b733706:QD0TPduNuhPfgsD2@storage-space:21 -e "cd kopia; mirror -R katalog_test kopia; quit"
    cd ok, cwd=/kopia
    New: 1 file, 0 symlinks

    Done! Your data is now secured.
