Getting Started with Jungle Disk Server

Jungle Disk Server is a 2-part program.

 

  1. The first part is the Agent software that will be installed on the server that you wish to backup.
  2. The second part of Jungle Disk Server is the Management Client software that will give you the ability to remotely manage the backups from your local computer.

 

First, you will need to download and install the Agent software onto the server that you wish to backup.

 

Part 1: What type of server do you want to backup?

In order to download the Agent software, you will need to log into the control panel, then click "Download Software" on the right hand side. You can log into the control panel here: Link to Control Panel

 

 

 

Click "Download Server Agent" and install the software. Once that is installed, you will need to apply the License Key to the server.

 

In order to do this, you will need to log into the server, then click “Start” and then select the option to “Set License Key for Jungle Disk Server Edition”. (Note: You can find the License Key in your Control Panel under “Licenses)

 

 

 

After the License Key is applied, you will need to restart the Jungle Disk Server service. 

In order to download the software, you will need to log into the control panel, then click "Download Software" on the right hand side. You can log into the control panel here: Link to Control Panel 

Note: If you do not have a GUI in your server, you can acquire the URL for the appropriate download by following these steps. 

Go to this downloads page in a computer that does have a GUI. Once there, right-click and copy the link you want to download from.  

 

 

After grabbing the link address, go to the server and run the following command (examples shown with 64-bit RPM download on CentOS):

wget https://downloads.jungledisk.com/jungledisk/junglediskserver-3180-0.x86_64.rpm
rpm -i junglediskserver-3180-0.x86_64.rpm

 

 

  

You can then run the following command to start the service:

sudo /usr/local/bin/junglediskserver

Next, create the license file by copying the example file from the directory /etc/jungledisk :

cp junglediskserver-license-EXAMPLE.xml junglediskserver-license.xml

You will now edit the license file using your editor of choice.

Edit the license key file to replace "ENTER LICENSE KEY HERE" with the actual license key for Server Edition, available in the Licenses section of the control panel.

In order to download the software, you will need to log into the control panel, then click "Download Software" on the right hand side. You can log into the control panel here: Link to Control Panel.

Note: If you do not have a GUI in your server, you can acquire the URL for the appropriate download by following these steps. 

Go to this downloads page in a computer that does have a GUI. Once there, right-click and copy the link you want to download from. 

 

 

 

 

After that, SSH into your server and use "wget [url]" to download this .deb file to your server, where [url] would be the Jungle Disk url you copied.

 

 

Via SSH/Terminal, run the dpkg command with the --install flag to install this .deb package to your server.

  • Example: sudo dpkg --install junglediskserver_318-0_amd64.deb
    Though you would use whichever Jungle Disk .deb package you downloaded.

  

Once you complete the install, you can then run the following command to start the service:

sudo /usr/local/bin/junglediskserver

 You'll then need to copy the example license file to the appropriate directory for use:

sudo cp /usr/local/share/junglediskserver/junglediskserver-license-EXAMPLE.xml /etc/jungledisk/junglediskserver-license.xml

 

 

Now that you have this file copied into the correct directory and set to the right name, edit this file to set your license key on this server.

  1. Copy your License Key by going to your Licenses page.
  2. Open the license file on your server using editor of your choice:
    • use nano: sudo nano /etc/jungledisk/junglediskserver-license.xml
    • or use vi: sudo vi /etc/jungledisk/junglediskserver-license.xml
  3. Insert your license key into the <licenseKey> tag...
    • so that: <licenseKey>ENTER LICENSE KEY HERE</licenseKey>
    • becomes: <licenseKey>6648XAZAC39F4368</licenseKey> (example key)
  4. Then save your changes.

 

 

      • The Server Agent service no longer starts as soon as it is installed. The service/process will need to be started manually by executing the Jungle Disk init script. To start the service, you can run this:
      • sudo /etc/init.d/junglediskserver start
      • Sudo /usr/local/bin/junglediskserver
  • The Server Agent service/process will automatically start up after a reboot as long as it was running before the reboot occurred.

In order to download the software, you will need to log into the control panel, then click "Download Software" on the right hand side. You can log into the control panel here: Link to Control Panel 

Note: If you do not have a GUI in your server, you can acquire the URL for the appropriate download by following these steps. 

Go to this downloads page in a computer that does have a GUI. Once there, right-click and copy the link you want to download from.  

  

After grabbing the link address, go to the server and run the following command (examples shown with 64-bit TAR download on Ubuntu):

wget -qO- https://downloads.jungledisk.com/jungledisk/junglediskworkgroup64-3160.tar.gz | tar zxv

 

Next, change the working directory to the junglediskserver folder found after extracting the TAR package contents.

You can then run the following command to start the service:

sudo /usr/local/bin/junglediskserver

Create the direcotry /etc/jungledisk and then copy the license key file from within the junglediskserver folder and place it in the newly created directory:

cp junglediskserver-license-EXAMPLE.xml /etc/jungledisk/junglediskserver-license.xml  

You will now edit the license file using your editor of choice. (Vim used in this example)

Edit the license key file to replace "ENTER LICENSE KEY HERE" with the actual license key for Server Edition, available in the Licenses section of the control panel.

Lastly, start the Jungle Disk Server service. This can be done from within the directory where the package contents where extracted. You can also copy this to /usr/local/bin (or whichever path you prefer to run it from).

Part 2: Download and Install the Management Client

Now you will need to download and install the Management Client onto the machine that you wish to manage the backups from. (Note: The 64-Bit Management Client will have to be installed on a Windows or Mac computer.)

 

 

 

After this is installed, you will log in and configure the backups with the First Time Setup Wizard.
