How to Mirror Skolelinux/DebianEdu

The best way to mirror large amounts of data is using rsync. It uses the rsync remote-update protocol to greatly speed up file transfers when the destination file already exists. The rsync remote-update protocol allows rsync to transfer just the differences between two sets of files across the network link.

How to build your own mirror

The short answer would be to run "rsync rsync://$SERVER/$MODULE $DESTINATION" after setting the variables values. You should run this with cron to make sure your mirror is updated. Please also use this options for rsync "--recursive --times --links --hard-links --delete".

You can also use as a base for you own script.
