If you want to backup your whole system the only way to do that is to boot from a live cd and back it up. You can NOT backup the whole system while it is running.

Can I install Ghost 4 using apt? I only have ssh access to my linux box?

If you only have ssh it wont work..because you need to boot from a boot CD as said. Just use webmin Filesystem backup in this case.
