Rdiffweb Installation

You may install rdiffweb in various ways. It's recommended to install rdiffweb from Pypi repository. It's the official supported way to install rdiffweb.

To install rdiffweb from pypi, you need to install pip and other dependencies:

sudo apt-get install python-dev python-pysqlite2 libldap2-dev libsasl2-dev rdiff-backup build-essential
curl -o
sudo python

Then you may install rdiffweb using pip:

sudo pip install rdiffweb

Install default configuration file.

sudo mkdir -p /etc/rdiffweb 
wget -O /etc/rdiffweb/rdw.conf

If needed, create a service unit to manage rdiffweb as a service:

sudo wget -O /etc/systemd/system/rdiffweb.service
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo service rdiffweb start

By default, the web server is listening on port 8080 and is accessible via the following URL.

On first start, you should access rdiffweb using default credentials:

  • username : admin
  • password : admin123
You can’t perform that action at this time.
