This Guide will discuss how to setup CrashPlan on OMV primarily as a backup server for client machines. A Windows 7 machine will be used for the client but you likely will be able to easily adjust the instructions for an Apple, or Linux, client machine. This guide is for 64 bit OMV. I'm not sure if CrashPlan has a 32 bit package. You will have to check and adjust if they do have one for a 32 bit OMV.
Start a root session with Putty to your OMV:
tar -zxvf CrashPlan_3.7.0_Linux.tgz
Here I give install steps and responses you should make:

/usr/local/crashplan does not exist. Create /usr/local/crashplan? (y/n) [y] [Press ENTER to accept default]
What directory do you wish to link the CrashPlan executable to? [/usr/local/bin] [Press ENTER to accept default]
What directory do you wish to store backups in? [/usr/local/var/crashplan] [Press ENTER to accept default. This can be changed easily later as you will see.]
/usr/local/var/crashplan does not exist. Create /usr/local/var/crashplan? (y/n) [y] [Press ENTER to accept default]

CrashPlan should be installing now... There is one last query.
Press Enter to complete installation. [Press ENTER to accept default]
Ok, now it is installed and the CrashPlan Engine is running on your OMV. There is a problem though. On reboot the Engine will not start. Do this to fix it.
service crashplan stop
update-rc.d -f crashplan remove
service crashplan start
Now reboot and make sure it started automatically with this:
service crashplan status
It should say running. Continue to my next post.
