Personal Online Backup Host (OBH) - Part 3

Installing and configuring the OBH client

Previous articles in this series provided an overview of the OBH service, Archive Manager backup software, Explorer file-sync add-in as well as configuring your server for web hosting. This article assumes you have your server configured for web hosting. If you do hot have web hosting configured then please read article two.

This article will focus on installing and configuring the OBH web host on your Windows-based server (or desktop PC with IIS installed).

OBH installation

The OBH client comes in two flavors:

  • stand-alone Windows application (which runs on any 64-bit version of Windows operating system)
  • WSS dashboard integration (WSS Dashboard: i.e. WHS 2011 and Windows Server 2012 Essentials).

The stand-alone version is downloadable as OnlineBackupHostForWindows.msi. The WSS dashboard version is downloadable as Obh.wssx. Both versions are available to download from the electrongoo website as a feature a fully-functional 60-day free trial.

The remainder of this article will focus on a walk-through with screen-shots taken from OBH running on Server 2012 Essentials. The OBH client is identical in feature and form regardless of your target operating system with the exception of the installation wizard.
