We are always interested in more download mirrors. If you have spare web space and bandwidth on your server, PC-BSD will be greatly helped if you would be willing to donate this to us. More mirrors means higher download speeds and more (local) servers for users to download from. PC-BSD is also distributed as [http://www.gotbsd.net/ torrent] and you can help us with seeding, especially the first two weeks after a new release.
 
  
Mirrors are the lifeblood of any project such as PC-BSD. If you have a system with a high-speed connection, 150-200GB of space, and the ability to '''rsync''' with a host, then we need you!
 
  
As an example, this '''rsync''' command will mirror the entire ISO and PBI collection:

<noinclude>
'''rsync -vaz --delete isc.pcbsd.org::ftp .'''

[[category:Supporting PC-BSD®]]
That command should be run as a cron job with a recommended frequency of once daily.

Once you've begun the rsync process, please send an email to kris at pcbsd dot org letting him know of the mirror URL so the new mirror can get listed.
