Installing Bacularis

Overview

Installation process can be performed using binary packages, Docker image or Composer.

Requirements

Bacularis uses the following components to work:

  • Web server that supports URL rewriting,

  • PHP >= 7.1.0 with modules:

    • php-bcmath

    • php-curl

    • php-xml

    • php-json

    • php-ldap

    • php-mysqlnd

    • php-pdo

    • php-pgsql

    • php-intl

  • Access to local or remote Bacula Catalog database,

  • Bacula bconsole access,

  • If you are going to configure Bacula via Bacularis, read/write access to Bacula configuration files for the web server user.

Note

In case installing Bacularis by binary DEB or RPM packages all requirements (web server, PHP modules) are installed automatically as the package dependencies. In case installation by Docker, everything is already installed and ready to use.

Install using Docker

Installation

On the Docker Hub service are available Bacularis container images. They are in few variants to use:

bacularis-standalone [https://hub.docker.com/r/bacularis/bacularis-standalone]

It contains fully configured Bacularis webGUI and API with Bacula Director, Storage Daemon and File Daemon and also PostgreSQL database server. The image can be used for example for trying Bacularis in own environment.

The command to run container:

docker run -d -p 9097:9097 bacularis/bacularis-standalone

bacularis-web [https://hub.docker.com/r/bacularis/bacularis-web]

It contains a pure the Bacularis web interface without API layer. It can be used to connect external Bacularis API server(s) in containers or outside them.

The command to run container:

docker run -d -p 9097:9097 bacularis/bacularis-web

bacularis-api-dir [https://hub.docker.com/r/bacularis/bacularis-api-dir]

It contains installed and configured the Bacularis API with ready to use Bacula Director and PostgreSQL database server. The image can be used to connect to existing Bacularis Web instances running in containers or outside them.

The command to run container:

docker run -d -p 9097:9097 bacularis/bacularis-api-dir

bacularis-api-sd [https://hub.docker.com/r/bacularis/bacularis-api-sd]

It contains installed and configured the Bacularis API with ready to use Bacula Storage Daemon. The image can be used to connect to existing Bacularis Web instances running in containers or outside them.

The command to run container:

docker run -d -p 9097:9097 bacularis/bacularis-api-sd

bacularis-api-fd [https://hub.docker.com/r/bacularis/bacularis-api-fd]

The command to run container:

docker run -d -p 9097:9097 bacularis/bacularis-api-fd

Access parameters

Access URL: http://yourhost:9097

Login: admin

Password: admin

Install using Composer

The PHP requirements together with other requirements can be installed by the commands below.

For rpm-based systems

dnf install curl patch php-cli php-bcmath php-curl php-xml php-json php-ldap php-mysqlnd php-pdo php-pgsql php-intl

For deb-based systems

apt install curl patch php-cli php-bcmath php-curl php-xml php-json php-ldap php-mysql php-pdo php-pgsql php-intl

To install Bacularis you need to download the Composer phar archive and install it in system. After that, you can install Bacularis.

The Composer installation:

curl -s http://getcomposer.org/installer | php
mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

Bacularis installation:

composer create-project bacularis/bacularis-app

Once it is done, you need to set proper permissions for specific Bacularis directories. You can do it by executing the install script as the root user:

bacularis-app/protected/tools/install.sh

Note

This is note for using Nginx or Lighttpd web server. On some operating systems (like DEB-based) where default PHP-FPM socket is different than /run/php-fpm/www.sock you have to provide the PHP-FPM socket path to the install.sh script. It can be done by using an additional -p parameter like below (example for PHP 7.3):

bacularis-app/protected/tools/install.sh -p /var/run/php/php7.3-fpm.sock

This install.sh script also will prepare web server configuration for popular web servers. The result file will be named bacularis-apache.conf, bacularis-nginx.conf or bacularis-lighttpd.conf (depending on used web server) and it will be available in the main Bacularis directory. You need to provide it to location on the filesystem where it can be used by the web server.

Installation using Composer on RPM-based system

Installation using Composer on DEB-based system

Bacularis and Baculum

Bacularis installation on host with Baculum

Bacause Bacularis uses its own paths in the system, different from the Baculum’s paths, it means that these two web interfaces can coexists independently on the same host. From the web interface side they use different ports.

If Baculum and Bacularis installed on the same host work with the same Bacula instance, please make sure that you do not configure Bacula resources in Baculum and Bacularis at the same time because it could lead to overwritting Bacula configuration once by Baculum and once by Bacularis. For the administration tasks like running backup, restore, monitoring statuses and others there is not any additional limitation for that.
