JVaultBackupServer

This is a simple backup server for jVault from COHOSOFT, a password manager for WebOS. With it you can backup your passwords to your computer via a network connection. In contrast to the php-script provided by COHOSOFT, you do not need a webserver like Apache or IIS and it also keeps a backup history. It should run on Linux and Windows, though I have only tested it on Linux.

Requirements

You need a Ruby interpreter on your machine and the Sinatra gem.

Installation

  • Install sinatra:

    gem install sinatra
  • Copy the 'jvaultbackupserver' script to a place on your machine, where you want to use it.

  • Copy 'jvaultbackupserver.conf.example' to the same directory.

  • Rename it to 'jvaultbackupserver.conf' and edit it. You need to setup a username and a password and the location of the files.

  • Run it:

    ruby jvaultbackupserver
    
    or on Linux just:
    
    ./jvaultbackupserver
  • Configure jVault “Wireless Backup”:

    URL: http://[your-ip-address]:4567/
    LOGIN: [username from the conffile]
    PASSWORD: [password from the conffile]
  • Press “Test Settings”. jVault should say “successful” and the console output of jvaultbackupserver and the logfile should report the test.

Now you can backup and restore your passwords.
