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 rsync. rsync is a software package in the Ports
Collection for distributing and updating collections of files
across a network.
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://bit0.us-west.freebsd.org/FreeBSD-www-data/ /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.
