Hi Stefan

Back last May I posted a very simple web interface using php and
bbackupquery to interrogate the store. But this is much better.

I presume this can be run from a web server remote from the backup
server providing you have the certificates. As you say security is weaker
but as a sacrifice for usability. Most of my users are not too worried about
security just integrity.

If I can help in any way let me know.
