What is BorgWeb?

BorgWeb is a browser-based user interface for Borg Backup.

The UI is intended to help with everyday tasks, it is not intended as a full UI to everything borg can do.

You’ll need help of an admin to install and configure it, as well as to restore backups.

Main features

  • BorgWeb (the web service) usually runs on the machine that is backed up with BorgBackup. You can use a web browser to access BorgWeb from the same machine or from another machine.
  • BorgWeb can operate using a builtin web server or as WSGI app using an external web server (like e.g. apache + mod_wsgi).
  • using the web browser you can:
    • review backup log files
    • start a backup
