bluemountain.com has finally scraped together (not really) the hardware to
make a freebsd mirror. I've installed 4.2-RELEASE on it and am now
wondering what the next step is to creating an ftp archive (and possibly
www/cvs/cvsup)? I've got about 100GB of storage (RAID 0+1) hanging off a
mylex controller for just this purpose. So... now what?
find your closest mirror - i don't recomment hitting ftp.freebsd.org
directly. then start mirroring using rsync or spegla or mirror.pl
to your local system.
once complete, send more mail to hu...@freebsd.org and/or your
closest domain hostmaster for freebsd.org asking to be added
i believe the web pages are generated from CVSup, so you'll
need to install and configure that to generate a web mirror.
i would also recommend you install an rsync server for users
(and downstream mirrors) to be able to access your archive.
lastly, i hope you have a big network pipe/budget to keep
up with freebsd package updates.
