Version: 0.04rdiff-backup-web is a web front-end to rdiff-backup, a command-line incremental backup application written by Ben Escoto.
Operating System: Linux
The main web interface of rdiff-backup-web is written in php with a mysql backend. The backups are actually run using a command line perl script that can be set up as a cron job. The application was originally written to do a specific task at the company I work for, but it turns out that it might be handy to other people.
This is currently ALPHA quality software.
What's New in This Release:
· Now you can use SSH connections, if you follow Dean Gaudet's instructions for unattended rdiff-backup here.
· Also, an unexpected bonus of adding the SSH backup type (well, unexpected to me, anyway) has been to allow local backups. Just set the "Path to Orig Files" to be /path
· Files and directories are listed using a tree-style view, rather than a big list of files.
· You can deactivate a backup with a single click, but it remains in the system to be reactivated with a similar, singular, click.
· You can now back up to a different location than the default, simply by using a leading / in the backup location field (useful for backing up to a mounted USB drive, etc).
· There is now one required perl module, PHP::Include by Ed Summers, which can be downloaded and installed using CPAN (instructions in the readme).
· Oh, and unlike the previous release, this might actually work
