Marty and Dan. Doing a chown would appear to be sensible but who is the owner to
be? From my very limited experience with Backuppc from the previous install I
noticed it did not create a normal user on Ubuntu. The backuppc user name
and password only worked through the Backuppc web interface. I think I will give
it a try "as is" and see what happens. I have no data at risk anyway
it first. save a headache.
