Yes, it was pointed out to me that there are instructions in
in Step-7:-Talking-to-BackupPC.
I note that these instructions end by advising the user not to follow them,
but to set up the GUI method.

Incidentally, I've been running BackupPC on my CentOS-7 server
for about a week now, and I notice that no config file is created
in /var/lib/BackupPC/pc/helen, where helen is the host-name.
It seems the GUI method stores the config file somewhere else.
