A graphical web frontend to [Box Backup]( written in [Python](
1. Extract tar file to your www folder (on backup client, not server)
2. Create a user without shell access, eg. *bbexp*
3. Set owner: ```chown bbexp.bbexp bbexplorer.cgi```
4. Set mode: ```chmod 500 bbexplorer.cgi```
5. This script should be accessible only by authenticated users and must be executed as file owner. Therefore you have to modify your apache configuration to something like:
SuexecUserGroup bbexp bbexp
<Location />
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Box Backup Explorer"
AuthUserFile /path/to/.htusers
Require valid-user
6. This script partially executes itself via sudo. Modify sudoers by running *visudo* and add:
# Box Backup Explorer
bbexp ALL=NOPASSWD: /path/to/bbexplorer.cgi
7. Finally adjust the configuration section in *bbexplorer.cgi*
