Rdiffweb is a web interface for Rdiff-Backup

Optimal management of your backups

Rdiffweb is an open source backup management software that facilitates browsing and restoring archives through simplified navigation including easy management of user access. This free tool is ideal for people with limited technical knowledge who wish to be autonomous in the administration of their backups.

This online downloadable application saves time, not only to system managers who can control and delegate document restoration to key people within their business, but also to those who will no longer need an intermediary to access their archives, retrieve their data and manage administrators. This improves accessibility to your backups while reducing your expenses!


Rdiffweb, a simplified visualization of your archives through easy user interface management:

  • Management, path and restoration of backups
  • User authentication and authorization
  • Email notifications
  • Saving customization
  • Backup activity statistics

Real-time access to your data backups

Rdiffweb is an open source web application that allows you to view existing archives generated by rdiff-backup through a dynamic graphical interface. This free software integrates very easily with your Linux server and can be used by non-computer experts to manage their backups and quickly restore their data, in addition to being able to modify users if necessary. Thus, you can easily access your archives at any time!


  • Backup location
  • Archive file restoration
  • Authentication and authorisation of users via a local database or LDAP
  • Backup failure email notification
  • Encoding configurable repository
  • Configurable retention period
