Go a github repo with some selfhosted stuff guides… kinda documentation where I write up on how to deploy shit…
Was on borg for a few years for my linux backup, and veeam for windows stuff… but really liked the idea of having kopia in the toolbelt as a universal backup solution that once I learn I can use anywhere - my docker linux host, or some techdept old windows server, or random user want just desktop backup.
I tested few times any section there in VMs and on my docker host… but there could be some quirks.
Do tell if I got something wrong.
Wow, this is awesome! I was desperately looking for something like this. A coherent documentation and working solution for running Kopia on Windows. Thank you so much!
A big thank! It’s so useful
I’m running mine as a service using nssm
Choose kopia.exe or kopia-ui
I needed mine to run schedules even after reboot or logged out of windows.
Now runs like a dream everytime
create batch file
cd /D C:\Program Files\KopiaUI\resources\server
kopia server start --insecure --address=127.0.0.1:51515 --server-username=yourservername --server-password=yourpassword --password=yourpassword
choose batch file above to run as service, run as system account
Nice guide, i’d use a sytemd service too, if it wasn’t that I found Cronicle.
