Description Guido Berhoerster 2013-05-08 07:45:09 UTC
The recent update of duplicity to version 0.6.21 changed its default behavior which broke my automated backup. In the default configuration it now enforces SSL certificate verification without having any certificate database configured. Please either patch it to default to /etc/pki/tls/cert.pem or deliver /etc/duplicity/cacert.pem as a symlink to it and depend on ca-certificates.

I have created a symlink as suggested by you.  Thanks!

Unfortunately this version has a pretty serious bug which prevents backing up to an S3 bucket root: 


Since 0.6.23 appears broken for different reasons, I'm having to downgrade all our servers back to 0.6.21.
