Remote CLI – Reference

teh codes

Akeeba Remote Control CLI (Remote CLI for short) is a powerful command line application which can interface with a site where Akeeba Backup is installed in order to provide certain remote administration features, such as remotely taking backups, downloading backup archives, deleting backup records and upgrading Akeeba Backup itself. It is able to work in human– or machine–friendly output format modes so that you can either use it directly from the command line, or easily create a "wrapper" application around it.

Remote CLI is Free Software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License, version 3 of the license or, at your option, any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. You should have received a copy of the license with the programme, contained in the file LICENSE.txt. Alternatively, use the --license parameter of the programme to display the text of the license.

This section of our documentation contains our walkthroughs, a selection of how-to articles explaining how to carry out some of the more complex procedures which didn't fit into our documentation.
