    Hi

    As i know many users on the forum have servers from OVH and as they offer free backup space i need some help to activate it and mount it on /backup for example :)

    Reading the related tutorials are confusing me most for the mount part than the activation part.

    Can anyone post any simple steps to follow so i can use it?

    Thank you

    Did you test it by yourself on OVH?

    If I don't remember it wrongly those is the step.

    1. Log in to your Ovh manager web interface
    2. Go to dedicated / Your server
    3. Click on the backup storage tab
    4. Assign your IP (Click the add an access) allowed to use your backup storage and also chose the protocol to use.. (Cifs, FTP, NFS) ..

    After chosen protocol - then use the given backup host from within your Ovh manager as connection point from you box..

    Enjoy..

    Something like this should help you out if you for exampel activate nfs access to backup storage:

    mount -t nfs <nfs-server-IP/backup store host>:/ /backup

    Code:
    To save individual files you can use the following command:
    
    ncftpput -uFTPUSER -pFTPPASS FTPBACKUPHOST /REMOTE/FOLDER /FILE/TO/SAVE
    Replace the following variables with the correct information:
    
    FTPUSER:    The FTP username
    FTPPASS:    The FTP password
    FTPBACKUPHOST:    The hostname of the backup server
    /FILE/TO/SAVE:    The local file to upload
    /REMOTE/FOLDER:    The remote target directory where to save the file
    ftp user and password? That's what is confusing me..... Where is this info?

    When you activate our backup storage, you got a auto generated password - if forgotten reset - also stated nearly first in the doc from @eva2000 .. Username is (at my end) the manager username..

    If you look at the doc under the Usage summary, you see the ID info - that is the username - find that ID on your own manager.
