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.

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

 

You can get the Server Agent software from jungledisk.com/downloads/.  

Once you download and install the Server Agent software, you will need to apply the License Key to the Server Agent. On the server, click the “Start” menu 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 “Manage Active Licenses”.

 

 

You can get the Server Agent software from jungledisk.com/downloads/. This is where you can get the URL for the download if your server does not have a GUI.
Note: If you have a CentOS 6 machine, you will need to log into the online Control Panel as the admin of the account. Here is the direct link to the Linux downloads page.

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

After that, run this command to install:

sudo rpm -i junglediskserver-3180-0.x86_64.rpm

 

After the installation, you will need to enter your license key into the license key file, located here:

/etc/jungledisk/junglediskserver-license.xml

You can edit the settings file using your editor of choice. For example:

edit_license_file.png

Edit the license key file to replace "ENTER LICENSE KEY HERE" with the actual license key for Server Edition, available in the Manage Active Licenses section of the online Control Panel.

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

sudo /usr/local/bin/junglediskserver

 

You can get the Server Agent software from jungledisk.com/downloads/. This is where you can get the URL for the download if your server does not have a GUI.

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

wget https://downloads.jungledisk.com/jungledisk/junglediskserver_3200-0_amd64.deb

After that, run this command to install:

sudo dpkg -i junglediskserver_3200-0_amd64.deb

After the installation, you will need to enter your license key into the license key file, located here:

/etc/jungledisk/junglediskserver-license.xml

You can edit the settings 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 Manage Active Licenses section of the online Control Panel. For example: 

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

sudo /usr/local/bin/junglediskserver

 

You can get the Server Agent software from jungledisk.com/downloads/. This is where you can get the URL for the download if your server does not have a GUI.
Note: If you have a CentOS 6 machine, you will need to log into the online Control Panel as the admin of the account. Here is the direct link to the Linux downloads page.

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 vxz 

With the newest version of Jungle Disk, this will create a folder beginning with junglediskserver-backend and within will be an etc and usr folder. Copy those directories and their contents into the corresponding etc and usr folders of your system. Once you are done, the license key file should reside here:

/etc/jungledisk/junglediskserver-license.xml

You can edit the settings 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 Manage Active Licenses section of the online Control Panel. For example: 

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

sudo /usr/local/bin/junglediskserver

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. This will reuire a GUI, so it must be on a Windows, Mac, or Linux machine with a GUI.

You can get the Management Client software from jungledisk.com/downloads/.  

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