    mirroring a web site


    hello people...

    ive been looking at mirroring a web site and was wondering how it could be done..! basically i want to update one site and have it mirrored to another and update itself accordingly.

    Has anyone got any ideas how i can do this..? or point me in the right direction.

    im currently using apache but will use others if it can be done

    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Are you going to be using PHP / MySQL ?

    If you are, you could write your pages so that links, for example, are written like ../ and not server.com/ etc. then if you do file uploads through a web page, upload to 2 servers using php ftp functions. Same with pages if you have a content management system type thing - when you do a page update - update to 2 databases.

    Alternatively, you run "cron jobs" every so often to download all the new material from one site then upload it to the new one ( again this can be done in PHP) but things like WGET (I think) are programs that can do that kind of stuff.

    Hope that makes sense - need more info, just ask

    Cheers,
    Jamie
