|If your installs of DA are downloading files slowly from the files.directadmin.com server, you can use one of our mirrors instead.|
The current list of mirrored files server is as follows:
files1.directadmin.com - USA main server
As of January, 2011, the custombuild scripts has the ability to find you a faster mirror if you choose. They way to do this is to run:
When using the setup.sh in the normal interface mode (user input), it will ask to find the fastest mirror.
Selecting 'y' will do this for you, so no need to run this post-install (unless you selected 'n', have and older system, or one of the servers is dead)
You can manually set the value you'd like in your options.conf to override it, eg:
The older/outdated method is to update the /etc/hosts file (not recommended):
To use one of these backups, take the IP of that server, and add it into your /etc/hosts file.
For example, to use files6, you'd run
[root@server ~]# dig files6.directadmin.com
Then add the following into your /etc/hosts file:
22.214.171.124 files.directadmin.comwhich will override the dns lookup, and make files.directadmin.com resolve to the files6 mirror.
