Is there any way to roll back to my previous version of BackupPC

Moving from an installation package to a source-based install can be a bit of a trial, depending on how much the norms of that distro and packaging system deviate from the tarball. Version 4 is a fairly dramatic leap as well, which complicates things further.

First, though, I'll address your question and give you the good news: since you never actually launched BackupPC 4, your repository is instact and in the expected location for your distro. Therefore, to revert to the previous version, you need only delete the tarball's files, and install the distro's version.

N.B. preserve your config.pl and return it to its original location, as your distro may assume it is a new installation and do god-knows-what to your config.pl. Some are kinder than others.


The SCGI question is a bit harder to answer without knowing what other choices you've made. Since I have set up SCGI, I match the port to what I have set up within Apache... which can be anything, as long as the number in Apache and in config.pl are the same. If I had not set up SCGI, I'd set it to -1.
