 Linux Documentation Project Mirrors 


The following sites mirror the LDP pages, please use the site nearest to you. DAILY means mirrored daily, DAILY*N means mirrored N times per day, WEEKLY means mirrored weekly, WEEKLY*N means mirrored N times a week.

If you are using a mirror site the date on the main page of the mirror site should be within two weeks of the date found on http:/tldp.org/. If the date is not within that time period, please email email feedback(at)en.tldp.org with the location of the outdated mirror.

NOTE: If you would like to become a mirror site for the LDP, please see the Mirroring Information found at the bottom of this document. We request that you mirror the entire site and not a portion. Mirroring a subset can cause problems with broken links and other related items.

Mirror sites are located in: Australia, Austria, Argentina, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, French Guiana, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Lithuania, Macau, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia and Montenegro, Singapore, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, UK and USA.

Mirroring Information

The master LDP pages are at http://www.tldp.org/. If you would like to maintain a LDP mirror, please email feedback(at)en.tldp.org with the following information:

  1. URL of the mirror. We recommend naming the mirror directory "LDP".

  2. Name and/or email address of who will be maintaining the mirror. If at all possible, try to use an alias that can be accessed by more than one person in your organization. One of the primary causes of outdated or unmaintained mirrors is that an individual leaves their company or organization, and no one else in the organization is aware of the existence of the mirror.

  3. Update frequency. We recommend mirroring daily or every other day. Mirroring weekly is less desirable. Anything longer than a week is too long.

  4. Location of the mirror. City, state (if applicable), and country.

You will need approximately 800MB of disk space. Once we have your mirror information, you will be sent additional information. We strongly recommend mirroring using rsync. We advise a command similar to the following, in a little cronjob that is executed at least 3 times per week:

rsync -avz --delete ftp.ibiblio.org::ldp_mirror /your_path_to/LDP

The ftp-based perl mirror packagemay also be used but is more difficult to administer.

We request that you mirror the entire site and not a portion. Mirroring a subset can cause problems with broken links and other related items.

Please be aware that you are responsible for the mirroring process itself. With the number of requests we receive we cannot possibly assist every single individual/site. If for some reason the status of your mirrored location changes, please contact feedback_at_en.tldp.org so that this list can remain as accurate and up-to-date as possible. Thanks.


Outdated / Inaccessible Mirror Sites

Please try to keep your mirror site up-to-date. If the site becomes outdated or there is a problem accessing it, you will be contacted. If the problem is not corrected in a timely fashion, you will be removed from this list. If you have been removed and think this is in error, contact feedback(at)en.tldp.org. Explain the circumstances and list the site (location, maintainer, etc.) that was removed. You will be promptly added back to the list.

We appreciate your understanding in this matter!


Notes / Troubleshooting Information

  1. PROBLEM: Using 'rsync' you may occasionally see this error:

        read error: Connection reset by peer

    SOLUTION: This is due to bandwidth limitations placed on the master site. Try the update again at a different time, or monitor your update process to see if it clears up the following day (or with the next update).

  2. PROBLEM: If you currently use the package 'mirror' or a similar ftp-based package to mirror the master LDP site (found at metalab.unc.edu, formerly sunsite.unc.edu), you may encounter the following error:

        package=LDP metalab.unc.edu:LDP -> <local_directory>
        Failure at end of remote directory () because: timed out
        Cannot get remote directory details (LDP)
    
    This is due to a upgrade done to the ftp software on the master site which *may* cause 'mirror' and other ftp-based mirroring packages to fail. The upgrade was done for security purposes.

    SOLUTION: If you are using mirror, a patch has been made available, needs to be applied to the file ftp.pl. You can grab a fully-patched ftp.pl (for mirror 2.9) here: http://ibiblio.org/gferg/patch/ftp.pl.gz
