Adding Rackspace as a Remote Destination

  1. Once on the Remote Destinations page, click the +Add New button to add Rackspace as a remote destination. 
  2. From the Add New Destination page, configure the following destination settings: 
    1. Destination name - Name of the new destination to create. This is for your convenience only.
    2. Username - [Example: badger] - Your Rackspace Cloudfiles username.
    3. API Key - [Example: 9032jk09jkdspo9sd32jds9swd039dwe] - Log in to your Rackspace Cloudfiles Account and navigate to Your Account: API Access
    4. Container - [Example: wordpress_backups] - This container will NOT be created for you automatically if it does not already exist. Please create it first.
    5. Archive limit - [Example: 5] - Enter 0 for no limit. This is the maximum number of archives to be stored in this specific destination. If this limit is met the oldest backups will be deleted.
    6. Cloud network - USA or UK
  3. Once you've entered all of your settings, Test Settings and click the +Add Destination button.
  4. Your new location will now show on the Remote Destinations page in BackupBuddy. If you need to change your settings, click the gear symbol to the right of the destination. Rackspace-added.png
