macOS Installation

System Requirements 

  • x86_64 CPU architecture
  • OS X 10.9 or later (10.11 or later recommended)

Install 

The macOS operating system requires codesigning to be enabled in order to launch a downloaded .pkg file. If you have not configured codesigning for macOS, you will be unable to launch the installer. However, you can bypass this by right-clicking the .pkg file and choosing Open.

Run the eazyBackup.pkg file and follow the prompts.

Once installed, the client software prompts for account details to log in.

If you are running the .pkg file from the Downloads directory, macOS will offer to move the .pkg file to the Trash after a successful installation.

Upgrading 

The installer will safely remove and upgrade any prior versions of eazyBackup, including those with a different software branding.

Silent upgrade (advanced)

You can silently upgrade the software remotely via the eazyBackup Server interface, or by running /usr/sbin/installer -allowUntrusted -pkg “eazyBackup.pkg” -target / via your remote management software.

Uninstall 

macOS does not have a standard system for uninstalling programs. However, you can still uninstall eazyBackup by running the following command from a terminal window:

sudo -u root “/Applications/eazyBackup.app/Contents/MacOS/uninstall”

This will automatically stop all running eazyBackup processes, unregister eazyBackup’s launchd services, and remove all application files from the disk.

Uninstalling the software preserves any username/password credentials saved on this computer. To remove the saved credentials, delete the /Users/USERNAME/Library/Preferences/backup-interface/config.sys file.
