Bacula Webmin module will not start

nirvana
I am wanting to administer Bacula through Webmin. I have a working installation, but need to expand a bit, and being able to use Webmin would help a lot
I cannot get the Webmin module to start. It just says 'Failed to load the database DBI driver SQLite at ./bacula-backup-lib.pl line 45. Maybe it is not set up, or the module configuration is incorrect.'. the same thing happens when I specify MySQL or PostGreSQL, although I think Bacula is using SQLite.
I have checked that the perl module DBI is installed, and indeed deleted and re-installed it. It shows up in the Webmin Perl module, albeit not in bold like the rest of the modules
Has anyone seen this problem and has a solution
I have a feeling that I may have to set up the database again and then uninstall and reinstall Bacula. Obvously I can save the Config files if I do this, but does this mean I will lose the existing database and the six months of back-ups it references

I had the same Problem, and installing perl DBI driver didn't help.

Installing the package libdbd-sqlite3-perl did the trick though.

Hello,

I strongly recommend you to move to MySQL or Postgresql. Please let us know if you really need SQLite. I would say that SQLite in Bacula is almost "deprecated".

Best regards,
Ana

"Almost"?  I thought SQLite support had already been removed, or at
least was unmaintained.

It is.

Sqlite is _only_ there for proof of concept (as in testing if bacula
suits your purposes)
   and should _never_(*) be used in a production environment.

(*) As in "you would have to be absolutely and completely crazy to use
SQlite in a production environment."

If you're backing up 1-2 machines (SOHO) then MySQL is fine. If you are
backing up anything larger, then use Postgres or you'll probabl end up
regretting it.

MySQL runs into major scaling (memory consumption) and tuning issues
very quickly, whilst Postgres is self-tuning and tends not to grow as
uncontrollably as MySQL does.

I run both, they're about as easy as each other to setup but MySQL is
significantly harder to keep running when things get complex, large or
high-load, rapidly growing to consume far more resources of all kinds
than the equivalent Postgresql installation.

Don't let anyone try and discourage using Postgres on complexity or
"usability" grounds and "I only know mysql" is a path to eternal pain.
MySQL was originally designed as a lightweight (compared to Postgresql)
system for fast mostly-read work on webservers and it's still firmly
rooted there. (It's great for web query engines and that's what we
mostly use it for.)

Re: Bacula Webmin module will not start

Hi Alan,
I am a Bacula newbie and did not really care about my database as everything just worked after installation (Ubuntu 16.04). So I got SQLite3 without really taking notice.

Your post is pretty clear about this being a very bad choice.

Now: how could I migrate my already running Bacula to another db, e.g. Postgres oder Mysql (in fact Mariadb).
Do you know an easy way to do this?
