Mirroring the FreeBSD Web Pages

It is possible to mirror the FreeBSD web pages www.FreeBSD.org. This can be done using a program called csup. csup is a software package in the base system for distributing and updating collections of files across a network.

Running csup

If you keep your mirrored FreeBSD web pages in the directory /usr/FreeBSD-mirror and are owned by the user `fred', then run the following command as user `fred':

     $ csup supfile-www
The file supfile-www contain:
       *default host=cvsup.FreeBSD.org
       *default prefix=/usr/FreeBSD-mirror
       *default base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup
       www release="current" delete use-rel-suffix compress

This will mirror the FreeBSD web pages into /usr/FreeBSD-mirror. You can install this into fred's crontab, so that it runs once a day.
