This project is important to me, and I want everybody all over the world to be able to access it whenever they wish. To that end, I have, with the help of a friend in Southern New Hampshire, set up a rather extensive mirror setup.

Official Mirrors:

Setting up your own mirror: Setting up your own mirror is easy.

  • Simply set up a place for the site to live...
  • ...make sure your web server is properly configured...
  • ...and rsync the site to the location. ("rsync -avzP /PATH/TO/MIRROR")
  • Edit the config.local.php file for relevant issues, and check that it works. If you have trouble, you could try the Troubleshooting page. While that page is devoted to PHPScripture troubles, much of it may apply here too. Also, if you are using Apache as your webserver, you will need to use mod_rewrite.
    • RewriteEngine ON
    • RewriteRule ^/$ /index.php [L]
    • RewriteRule ^/(.*.php)(/.*) /$1 [E=PI:$2]
    • RewriteRule ^/(.*) /index.php/$1
    • RewriteRule ^/(.*) /$1%{ENV:PI}
    Those commands, once inserted into your subdomain virtualhost configuration, should work like a charm.
  • Once it works, then you can update automatically every day or so. ("rsync -az --exclude config.local.php --update --delete /PATH/TO/MIRROR").
  • Don't forget to email me, so I can put your mirror in a list.
