How to mirror The HwB-project

If you like this project and would like to mirror it, please feel free to do so. All we ask is that you drop us a mail so we can add your mirror to the list of mirrors.

There a severel ways to mirror, but we strongly recommend to use Rsync. In the following we'll give the details for Rsync mirroring.


You should have Rsync release 2.0 or newer ( it's required ). If you don't have it you can get it at This is the newest release. For help installing it look at Rsync mirroring HOWTO

You can now use rsync as follows:

rsync -avz --delete /local/path/hwb

Naturally /local/path/hwb is where you want to keep your mirror.

You should run this once a day (recommended), with your web-server pointed to the mirroring area that is /local/path/hwb.

If you have any questions of a technical matter please mail SunSITE staff.
