JIGDO-MIRROR(1)                                                JIGDO-MIRROR(1)



NAME
       jigdo-mirror - Maintain a mirror of images offered with jigdo

SYNOPSIS
       jigdo-mirror [ config-file ]


DESCRIPTION
       See jigdo-file(1) for an introduction to Jigsaw Download.

       jigdo-mirror is a script intended for people who want to offer direct
       HTTP or FTP downloads of files for which only the jigdo and template
       files are available.

       As the first step of using jigdo-mirror, you need to set up normal
       HTTP/FTP/rsync mirroring both of the `.jigdo'/`.template' files and of
       the parts that are needed for the reconstruction of the images. For
       example, in the case that you want to mirror Debian CD images with
       jigdo-mirror, you need a mirror of the `.jigdo'/`.template' files and a
       Debian mirror on the local machine.

       At regular intervals (preferably immediately after the normal mirroring
       has finished), schedule a run of jigdo-mirror. It will search through a
       given directory for any `.jigdo' files and attempt to create all images
       offered by each file.

       The script requires you to set a number of variables - please refer to
       the start of /usr/bin/jigdo-mirror for a description of each of them.
       Since /usr/bin/jigdo-mirror will be overwritten whenever you upgrade
       jigdo-mirror, it is highly recommended not to change the settings
       directly in this script. Instead, personal settings should be saved in
       a file called .jigdo-mirror in your home directory, or in a different
       file whose name is then passed to the script as its first (and only)
       command line argument.
