rdiff-backup-web is a web front-end to rdiff-backup, a command-line incremental backup application written by Ben Escoto.
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 python 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.
New Release:Version 0.5 is a big changes and improvements with a new backend script:
I didi do some work on the doco included with the package but i am going to review again and may re-release this package with some better doco.
New Developer: Hi all my name is Dale Stirling and i am maintaining the rdiff-backup-web project at the moment. I have found this app very valuable in some of the things that I am doing where I work and am hoping to share these and add to the project as time permits. Feel free to drop me a line and letr me know of any suggestions or feedback.
New Site: Over the next few weeks this site will be changing as i bring it inline with the same look and feel that I will be introducing to rdiff-backup-web in version 0.6. I hope you like the changes :)
New Release: Version 0.4 has several improvements over previous incarnations:
Update: Wait, scratch that last statement. It would work right if character 37 of line 88 of backup.sql was a comma instead of a semi-colon. So the line that reads
administrator tinyint(4) default 0;
in the CREATE TABLE users section should actually read
administrator tinyint(4) default 0,
cos otherwise it won't work. Damned if I know how that got in there! Thanks to Jacob Emcken for spotting it, and I'll make sure that it's fixed next update.
