Following BackupPC Ubuntu installation article, can't make it work

After following this tutorial on DO for installing BackupPC on Ubuntu 18.04, I get a file downloaded when accessing http://dropletIP/backuppc instead of the web GUI (after successfully login)

Any ideas?

Hi @danielpcharrua,

I’ve tested this and indeed you are right, I think that some dependencies are missing.

To fix the problem just save this installation script from the official backuppc repository:

And then run it, after that it should all work as expected.

Great answer, I’ve followed the BackupPc Wiki page and have installed without issues. Thank you!
