Duplicacy Web Edition 1.0.0 is now available

Any way to remove a password once set?


I am a new user of duplicacy so apologies if this is somehow obvious…

But related to your comment: does it then mean that to use the WebUI you need to download both the CLI and WebUI executables?

While checking into docker images for duplicacy, I noticed the image by ehough actually does download both binaries:

Whereas the one by saspus actually doesn’t seem to do that?


Thanks in advance for your help!

Nope, there’s no need to download both. Just download the Web edition, and it will download all that’s needed (which is only the CLI) automatically and use it behind the scenes.

At all times you will only interact with (use) the web frontend and you don’t have to care about anything else.


Correct, it is not necessary to download the engine manually — the main app will auto download everything it needs on the first launch.

You can edit ~/.duplicacy-web/duplicacy.json to remove the administration_token key.

Wow! This is awesome. Others are asking about backup schedules with the Web Edition, and my interest is in recovery. Using the Duplicacy CLI to recover a single file is challenging and this really addresses that issue for me. Thank you!

On a side note, how will this feature be licensed?

I would like to note that using this configuration, I have found that the service does not work fully with scheduled jobs after a restart or shutdown is effected in CentOS. Any scheduled jobs will failure after a full system restart and refuse to run. They have to be “kickstarted” with an initial manual start. After this, though, the scheduled jobs will run automatically without user initiation until the next system power cycling event occurs.

Adapting this may fix the issue with Duplicacy not self-invoking a job after a reboot. (Update: I confirmed yesterday that it worked for me, at least.) The issue is Duplicacy may start before the network interfaces are fully loaded. Thanks, @lonich.karoly!

By default the systemd service starts and runs with / as the working directory. So duplicacy-web installs its configuration, logs, etc. under /.duplicacy-web.

Adding WorkingDirectory=/root/ in the [Service] section allows for the working directory to be somewhere else: in this case the working files will now be found under /root/.duplicacy-web.

Do you plan to make the Web Edition available for FreeBSD also in the future?

That didn’t work for me; I have to set Environment="HOME=/root .

Is there, or will there be, a Windows x86 (32-bit) version?

I’ll add a win32 build when releasing the next update.

q: why would anyone want to use win 32bit?

@gchen Thank you!

@TheBestPessimist I built my HTPC (home theater PC) 12 years ago. Back then, most things were 32 bit; x64 was just starting to become a thing. There weren’t x64 drivers for some of my specialized A/V hardware, as I recall. My HTPC has an x64 CPU, so I could upgrade my it to x64 Win 10. But that would involve a clean OS install and reinstalling all my software, including photo viewing and editing, video and audio viewing and editing, sound card, video card, serial port emulation, in addition the the more “normal” software items like web browsers, Adobe reader, etc. Installing and configuring all that software would require many, many hours of work, with no sure guarantee of eventual success.

So, the reason I’m using 32 bit OS on this particular PC is because it’s already there. All my other, newer, PCs are x64 of course.
