I got a local repository in /var/www/html/centos/7 directory. In here, all rpm packages from centos are downloaded. I will create a crontab for updating my local repository every 1 week or sth.
I want to learn that does repocreate --update do this? Or should I download all the packages from centos repo again?
If I should download the packages from centos repo, is there a way to skip the downloaded packages(they're in /centos/7 directory as i mentioned) and download just the new(updated) packages from centos?
I have found the solution but it's not working for me. I created a new directory centos7/repo and download some files to check if the rsync --ignore-existing will work. But whenever I run the below command, I got an error
"failed to connect to ftp.linux.org.tr (188.8.131.52): Connection timed out (110)
rsync: failed to connect to ftp.linux.org.tr (2001:a98:11::100): Network is unreachable (101)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(125) [Receiver=3.1.2]"
The command is:
rsync -avz --ignore-existing rsync://ftp.linux.org.tr/centos/7/os/x86_64/ /var/www/html/centos7/repo/
I tried other mirrors as well from https://centos.org/download/mirrors/ (there are rsync location in this site as well). But none of them worked. Can anybody validate that rsync mirrors does work? Probably I can't go through firewall with port 873.
Is there anyway that I can use this rsync through port 80 or is there another way to accomplish this task? (I tried zsync but it needs a zsync file.)
