Mirroring the FreeBSD Web Pages

It is possible to mirror the FreeBSD web pages This can be done using a program called rsync. rsync is a software package in the Ports Collection for distributing and updating collections of files across a network.

Running rsync

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':

     $ rsync -vaHz --delete rsync:// /usr/FreeBSD-mirror/

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.
