I’ll explain step by step how to install the Bacula client on Ubuntu 22.04. Bacula is a network backup system that allows you to backup servers and workstations. It’s very useful for protecting the information of a company or project.
Before we start, it’s important to mention that if you have Ubuntu 20.04 or an earlier version, the process is much simpler. Just run the “apt update && apt install bacula-client” command without the need to perform the additional steps I’ll explain below.
Now, let’s start with the installation of the Bacula client on Ubuntu 22.04:
Step 1: Download the verification key
The first thing we need to do is download the Bacula verification key. To do this, run the following command:
This command downloads the key in .asc format from the official Bacula website.
Step 2: Add the verification key
Once the key is downloaded, we need to add it to the system. To do this, run the following command:
apt-key add Bacula-4096-Distribution-Verification-key.asc
This command adds the verification key to our keyring.
Step 3: Remove the downloaded verification key
Once the key is added, we no longer need it. Therefore, it’s recommended to remove it to avoid taking up space in our system. To do this, run the following command:
This command removes the downloaded verification key from Step 1.
Step 4: Add the Bacula repository
Now we need to add the Bacula repository to the system. To do this, run the following command:
echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://bacula.org/packages/5f1e8eefd1016/debs/11.0.6/jammy/amd64/ jammy main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
This command adds the necessary line to the sources.list file so the system can access the Bacula repository.
Step 5: Update the package list and install the Bacula client
Finally, update the package list and install the Bacula client with the following command:
apt update && apt install bacula-client
This command updates the package list and then installs the Bacula client on our system.
And that’s it! We’ve now installed the Bacula client on Ubuntu 22.04. I hope you found this guide helpful.
