I would like to use Ubuntu One to backup individual files on Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS. How do I install and configure Ubuntu One on Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS so that those individual files are backed up to the cloud every time they are updated?

Dropbox is an option but I would like to give Ubuntu One a try since it appears to be evolving nicely.

Thanks in advance for your guidance.

Ubuntu One does not officially support running on a headless server, but you can follow the instructions at UbuntuOne/Headless on the Ubuntu Wiki, and it should work for you.
