Web Log – see backup history on the web

SqlBackupAndFTP is installed on SQL server computers. To see the history of database backups, you have to open the app on the server itself:

However, if you need to check the backup history remotely – it is often more convenient to see it on the web at sqlbackupandftp.com/weblog

This is especially useful if you have multiple SQLBackupAndFTP installations. Then instead of checking each computer separately, you can see the backup history for every SQL server computer on a single weblog page.

How to make web log work?

Make sure that in the SqlBackupAndFTP app in the “Backup Options” section the option “Send log to see backup history on the web” in set (default ON)

Note that web log is part of the Updates, Web Log & Support subscription, so you need to have one of the paid editions and an active subscription.

Then just go to sqlbackupandftp.com/weblog (you need to be logged in) to see the backup history.

Can I edit my backup jobs from the web?

Not in SqlBackupAndFTP. Web log gives you a read-only log of your backups.

To edit SQL backup jobs from the web you can use our web-based backup service SqlBak (this is independent from SQLBackupAndFTP). Not only it allows you to see the backup history, but also configure all of the jobs on the web and monitor SQL server performance.
