Bacula-Web is a web based tool written in PHP which provides a summarized view of your Bacula backup infrastructure.

Metrics and informations displayed in Bacula-Web are taken from Bacula catalog database, no need to setup bconsole, bvfs, etc.

In addition, the access to the database is made read-only, so your Bacula catalog database remains safe :)

Why this project ?

Bacula-Web project has been revived since 2010.

I tought that having an easy and useful web UI to monitor Bacula backup jobs, volumes, pools, etc. would be nice. So I decided to take care of this project which was almost abandonned since more than 4 years.

You can find more information about the project timeline in the official documentation here

This is my little contribution to Bacula community project. Hope you enjoy it !
