mirror external repositories

Post by giobaxx » 2019/07/30 10:13:37

Hello guy

Could you tell me if there is a tool in the RedHat/Centos World where we can import/mirror External Repositories? In Ubuntu there is the apt-mirror tool where you can mirror external repositories(not the only ones provided by Canonical).

I've just read the command reposync but it is seem valid only to mirror the offcial repo, not generic one(ie mirroriring the webmin repos). Is it correct? or i'm wrong.

The Idea is to build a Repo Server(Ubuntu - RedHat -Centos) Internally...

Any Advice

You can use reposync for any repo that is configured on your system. You can also use rsync which has the benefit - if you are mirroring the entire repo - of not needing to run createrepo afterwards as it will also pull down the metadata from the remote repo.

You can use reposync to mirror any repository you have installed. reposync --repoid=whatever --download_path=/some/where

The -n flag is useful as well. Only takes the latest version.

I wrote this a while ago, but it's still very applicable to your question: http://nuxref.com/2016/10/06/hosting-rpm-repository/
