Remote Backup options

Hello Everyone,
I have been trying to configure the Remote Backup Options in FreePBX 2.9 to pull a backup from my primary server to my secondary server and automatically restore it to the secondary server. Here is what I have done so far.

  1. I created the public/Private key pair. By running “sudo -u asterisk ssh-keygen” on my secondary server.

  2. I then copied the public key to my primary server by running
    "sudo -u asterisk ssh-copy-id -i /var/lib/asterisk/.ssh/id_rsa.pub [email protected]_ip

  3. I tested the key from the secondary server to the primary server by running this command, sudo -u asterisk ssh -i /var/lib/asterisk/.ssh/id_rsa [email protected]_ip" and I was able to login without a password.

  4. On the secondary system I set up the Remote Backup Options as:
    Remote SSH Hostname = Primary_IP
    Remote SSH User = root
    Remote SSH Key = /var/lib/asterisk/.ssh/id_rsa

and checked the “Restore to this server” button.

I then chose to run the backup now and hit the “Submit Changes” button and there was a long pause and nothing happened.

I could see the folder and backup file were being created on the primary server, but not being transferred and restored to teh secondary server.

I found the logs for this are stored in /etc/httpd/logs/error_log so I looked in that file. I was receiving errors similar to this bug ticket,http://www.freepbx.org/trac/ticket/5021.

I upgraded from 2.9.0.2 to Backup & Restore module 2.9.0.3 and tried again. This time there was a long pause, but the backup file was never created on the primary server.

I’m now stumped and looking for some help. I have posted the Apache log below in case it is useful.

Everything has been corrected. The updated version of the module was installed on the primary server and that resolved the issue.
