    Question BackupPC does the first backup only

    I am running fedora15, BackupPC version 3.2.1, on a 32-bit x86 machine.

    BackupPC is waking up at the right times, according to the log. But, there are no further backups being done, even though I have added a new folder to the HOST.pl and have touched a file in one of the original folders. I have checked the log files in two locations:

    1. /var/lib/BackupPC/pc/HOST ## HOST is the name of my pc
    Only shows the original backup and transfer.

    2. /var/log/BackupPC
    Shows waking up, but not doing anything, except the nightly cleanup.

    Any ideas why subsequent backups are not happening?
    (I can do a manual backup by running BackupPC_dump, but this should be happening by itself).

    Thank you.

    Default Follow-up: BackupPC does the first backup only

    An incremental was finally done automatically (A day later, at the same clock time as the full backup). Maybe I just don't understand BackupPC does the first backup onlywhat is supposed to happen at wakeup...

    Default Solved: Follow-up: BackupPC does the first backup only

    My apologies. I was confused as to what "wakeup" entails. Reading through the config.pl more carefully, I see that "wakeup" is when the backup instructions are looked at. A period of 6.97 for full is basically weekly, and 0.97 for incremental is basically daily, and that is exactly what is happening.
