I'm backing up data on a Ubuntu computer to a separate hard drive. Do I need the admin permission to perform rsnapshot?
I'm having following error when do rsnapshot configtest without sudo:
ERROR: /etc/rsnapshot.conf on line 28: ERROR: snapshot_root /media/BACKUP/WORK/ - snapshot_root exists but is not \ readable ERROR: /etc/rsnapshot.conf on line 230: ERROR: backup /media/sda5/ localhost/ - snapshot_root needs to be defined \ before backup points
Ideally, I want the backup drive to be read only, and rsnapshot should not need the root permission. Here are main lines in configure file:
snapshot_root /media/BACKUP/WORK/ # LOCALHOST backup /media/sda5/ localhost/
