Uppsala Software Factory - Mirrors

Do you want to set up a local mirror of the USF site and have fast access to the manuals etc. ? Just follow these easy steps:

  1. Ftp the gzip-ed, tar-ed directory containing all files: manuals.tar.gz.
  2. Move the file to your www-directory and go there yourself as well (e.g.: mv manuals.tar.gz ~/www; cd ~/www)
  3. Gunzip the file: gunzip manuals.tar.gz
  4. Untar the directory: tar xovpf manuals.tar
  5. Go to the new directory: cd manuals
  6. Ftp the C-shell script localise_usf_mirror.csh
  7. Execute the script while you are in the USF manuals directory: ./localise_usf_mirror.csh - this will remove almost all the hardcoded references to the Uppsala USF site
  8. Edit the file welcome2usf.html and change the line pointing to 'usf_site' so that it points to your site instead. If you have a reasonably recent version of the USF site, this line looks as follows: <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="usf_site" VALUE=""> - if not, then it's probably time to update your local mirror anyway !
  9. Send a mail to Gerard to tell him about the new mirror, so he can add it to the list below

The following is a list of sites which have put the USF documentation on-line. Note that these may not be entirely up-to-date, but transfer rates may be better.

To register changes or additions, send an E-mail to Gerard.
